Holtwhites Trinibis III v Hertingfordbury CC 2nd XI on Sat 09 Jun 2012 at 1pm
Hertingfordbury CC Lost by 2 wickets

Match report A real struggle to get a side out this week so all credit to those concerned for getting 11 bodies on the pitch. We lost the toss and went in on a drying, sloping wicket. Tom and I negotiated the opening 9 overs before I succumbed to the nagging line and length of Hojack. Tom went a few overs later so it was left to Pete to hold the innings together. Unfortunately nobody could stick around long enough to allow him free rein. This was coupled with a two paced wicket and intelligent bowling, the pick being the impressive young Kewering who extracted pace and bounce and used the off-leg slope to good effect. Pete had said 3 figures might be enough and he was right, so it was disappointing to finish 12 short.

The hosts set about the low total in tentative style and Kevin quickly had his first victim lbw.
No. 3 Joseph set about hitting everything in range for 6 or 4 and threatened to end Kevin's spell (and the match) early. However he then holed out to James Dolan at deep midwicket with an enormous steepler that James pouched with ridiculous ease, despite not playing for at least 2 years.
Tom made headway at the other end but couldn't cut out the lose balls that were punished heavily and brought the small target ever closer. A few dropped catches didn't help but we did at least cause Holtwhites some worry and at 8 down it was still anyone's game. Unfortunately they held their nerve.

We're still top though, as Luton Town lost with only 7 points, so still all to play for.
