Marlow Park 1XI v Harefield Cricket Club Saturday 3rd XI on Sat 09 Jul 2011 at 1pm
Harefield Cricket Club Lost by 6 wickets

Match report Out bowled and out batted, we emerged from our encounter with Marlow Park an improved side if only for the fact that Jordan McLeod continues to demonstrate his worth at senior level and the skipper almost registered his first significant score in what has been a barren season so far. Winning the toss, we decided to bat on a good-looking Marlow pitch. Although Harry and Booby kept things ticking along, concentration was found lacking as attractive passers-by accounted for Daisy and Woodsy. Cokers battled it out with Howard as the bowling from the experienced MPCC quartet remained tight. When Cokers was adjudged off his thigh however, it was left to Taufeeq, Howard and Pancakes Ridgeway to drive us up to the 175 for 8 batting points. Alas we fell agonisingly short at 173-7 from our 52 overs. We would now have to bowl equally as well as the wisened Marlow Park attack had to stand any sort of chance of defending that score on a lightening outfield.

In response, Marlow Park made a brisk start…wide balls were dispatched and anything else was left alone or defended. It was Harry who drew a mistake from the opener before Hiren took what we hoped would be the first of seven wickets…but it wasn’t to be. As chance after chance went down and potential run-outs went unpunished, it wasn’t until Cokers returned for a spell of leg-spin that we took two more wickets to reduce the opposition to 4-down. In the end, MPCC struck the winning runs with 6.5 overs to spare and 20 points played 8. We coulda, shoulda and woulda made more runs and taken more catches, but sometimes it isn’t to be. Marlow Park will make a formidable opposition for many of the sides we faced in the first half of the season and good luck to them in their search for a return to Division 4.
