Harefield CC 1st XI- 111 all out (2 points) lost to Falkland CC 1st XI- 115-1 (25 points)

Fresh from retaining their trophy from the annual Twenty20 tournament at Amersham on Bank Holiday Monday, Harefield will have been confident entertaining Falkland at Breakspear Road on Saturday. However, their Twenty20 dominance was not to be indicative of their performance in the longer format of the game as they suffered another ignominious defeat. Harefield won the toss and elected to bat, and with the new opening pair of James Hammerton and Pete Lynch, they hoped to end their run of batting collapses. However inconsistency from the batting line-up once again proved to be Harefield’s downfall. Resistance from Hammerton (29) and top scorer Mluleki Nkala (33) proved futile as they were the only players to pass 20 runs, and Harefield were all out for 111 in the 40th over. This left Falkland with a massive 70 overs to leisurely chase down the target. Unlike Farnham Royal, who found themselves in a similar situation against Harefield last month, the Falkland batting line up did not capitulate, and the top order saw them home without fuss. Martin (51*) and Chandler (52*) both helped themselves to unbeaten half centuries, the only failure came from Ettridge who fell early on to leading wicket taker Doug King (1-30). This defeat saw Harefield drop from 4th to 8th in the league, and struggling for survival.
