Dinton v Harefield Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 11 Jun 2011 at 11.30am
Harefield Cricket Club Won By 46 Runs

Match report Harefield got their fantastic start to the season back on track against floundering Dinton on Saturday. Dinton won the toss and asked Harefield to bat, a decision that almost paid off when Harefield opener Simon Macey fell cheaply to Amin relatively early in the innings. Harefield struggled to put together large partnerships, and the innings began to stutter, with James Hammerton (32), Mluleki Nkala (38) and a returning Olly Richards (41*) being the only batsman to get themselves in. A solid partnership between Richards and Tom Crick saw Harefield gain an extra batting point, but they were eventually bowled out for 187. Once again Harefield’s bowling attack made an average total into a large winning margin, as an excellent effort all round decimated Dinton’s batting line-up. Opening bowler Doug King along with fellow seamer Mluleki Nkala took 3 wickets each, barely conceding any runs. The pacemen were once again well backed up by spinners Akshay Reddy (2-39) and Dale Morris (2-6) who took the Dinton middle order apart. Nkala removed the last two batsman to give Harefield a 46- run victory. As other results also went Harefield’s way this week, they are now 7 points clear with promotion to the highest level of club cricket a real possibility.
