Harefield Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI v Farnham Royal on Sat 02 Jul 2011 at 11.30am
Match was Drawn

Match report Harefield remain second after a hard fought draw at Breakspear Road on Saturday. Farnham Royal won the toss and elected to bat, getting off to a solid start with Daniel Simpson (20) and Ollie Clayson (36) putting on 57 for the opening wicket. Harefield then began to take regular wickets, with Captain Mluleki Nkala leading the way, who took 4 for 55 from his 19 overs. Nkala was ably backed up by all the other bowlers, Doug King (2-55), Akshay Reddy (2-91) and Scott Morris (1-20). Resistance from the Farnham Royal lower order meant that Harefield were unable to bowl them out and required 244 from their 50 overs. In reply, Harefield’s innings stuttered regularly, losing wickets at regular intervals, with Simon Macey (36) being the only member of the top 3 to reach double figures. However, with the total at 78-3, Akshay Reddy (36) joined Olly Richards (55) at the crease and together they almost doubled the Harefield total, with Richards falling when the score was on 155. Wickets began to fall regularly, leaving it to King and Morris to see Harefield past 200, and then to block out the remaining overs for a draw. A win for Slough sees them only 5 points behind the Hares, and Burnham are now 41 clear at the top of the table.
