Saracens Cricket Club


Bentley Heath v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 19 Jul 2009 at 2pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost by 40 Runs

Match report On a wet, cold and windy day Saracens travelled to Bentley Heath with 10 players due to a contacting mix up with Adam.

Bentley Heath skipper won the toss and chose to bat; Ayre and Richard Young opened the bowling only to be smashed all over the place by the 12 year lefty opener. Ayre eventually removed the other opener and number 3 before Andrew Young and Mike Bigby turned the screws. 12 Year old Mohammed was eventually bowled by Dinghy for a fine 103. A late flurry of wickets saw Squiby take 2, Bunny 2 and Dinghy end with 3. Special note to Tricky who took his first and second Saracens catch.

Saracens started a mammoth 232 run chase well with opener Archer being dropped second ball and Cody being bowled at the end of the first over. Skipper (Ayre) chipped a long hop to cover and Bigby A joined Archer for a fine 100 run partnership. When Bigby went for 63, followed by Young A (run out by Vinnie for 0) and Damian for 1 Barlow entered the scene. Barlow and Archer shared a fine 54 run stand putting Saracens in an excellent position with 50 needed from 11 over’s. Both batsmen fell in quick succession, Archer for 72, Barlow for 21 leaving the 10 men of Saracens all out for 192.

A fine effort in miserable conditions.
