Berkhampstead 1st XI v St Albans Cricket Club 1XI on Sat 07 May 2011 at 1pm
St Albans Cricket Club Won by 3 wickets

Match report After losing the toss and being asked to bowl on a wet wicket openers Afroz Khan and Martin Jones bowled tightly without reward beating the edge on a regular basis, first change bowlers James Rosson and Jon Smithers had better luck taking 3 quick wickets. The run rate was well controlled throughout the innings and the Berkhampstead tail were not allowed to wag.

Saints openers knew the first 10 overs would be vital and Matt Howeson and Ian McKinlay played some probing seam bowling well. St Albans then took their opportunity to score quickly in the middle overs and Jon Smithers on debut made a quick fire 42 to keep the asking rate manageable. The win was then secured in good time thanks to the experienced Phil Caley (37 not out) partnered by James Rosson to top off his good day with the ball.

A good win for Saints but there will be sterner tests to come.
