Burnham v Harefield Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 25 Jun 2011 at 11.30am
Harefield Cricket Club Lost By 153 Runs

Match report The eagerly anticipated top of the table clash between Harefield and Burnham turned out to be a disappointing affair for Harefield, as they experienced their second defeat of the season on Saturday. Harefield won the toss and elected to bowl, which appeared to be a good idea as Doug King (6-76) removed Burnham’s first 3 batsman quickly, leaving Burnham rattled at 15-3. However, a magnificent rebuild from the Burnham middle order, including a century from Aftab Khan and 53 from Captain Shaid Nadeem. Solid bowling from Harefield meant that only 3 Burnham players scored more than 20 runs, but even that was enough to see Burnham to a respectable total of 269-9 after their innings was reduced to 56 overs due to rain. In reply Harefield got off to a good start, with openers James Hammerton and Simon Macey putting on 43 for the first wicket. However, 43-0 quickly became 46-3, and Burnham picked up wickets at regular intervals with Mohammad Fazal (6-40) being ably supported by all rounder Khan, who then took 4-57 after his earlier exploits with the bat. This result sees Burnham clear at the top of the Home Counties Division 2 West, but Harefield are not far behind in second, with both teams comfortably clear of third placed Slough.
