Gerrards Cross v Harefield Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 19 Jun 2010 at 11.30am
Match was Drawn

Match report With a string of poor performances marring their first season in the Home Counties Cricket League, Harefield were looking to turn their season around when travelling to Gerrards Cross on Saturday. Gerrards Cross won the toss and asked Harefield to bat, a sensible choice, judging by the current fragility of the Harefield batsman. However, this was not the case, as Harefield’s young opening batsman James Hammerton batted with immense skill and concentration for his first century of the season, and in the process got his team in a great position. Hammerton (109) batted almost all the way through the innings, and put on a stand of 134 with Captain Akshay Reddy (64) for the 4th wicket. Hammerton was eventually dismissed with the score on 248, only 2 off the final total. In reply Gerrards Cross got off to a shaky start, with Mluleki Nkala (4-67) removing both opening batsman, first Sam Westaway (3) and then Ian Cockbain, who scored a quick-fire 49, quite early on in the piece. Harefield continued to pick up wickets at regular intervals throughout the innings, but could not break up the final pair of Tom Hampton and Michael Fabish-Wood. This result could be the turning point for Harefield’s shaky opening to the season, especially against opposition far above them in the league table.
