Eversholt I v St Albans Cricket Club 1XI on Sat 27 Aug 2016 at 13:00
St Albans Cricket Club Won By 5 wickets

Match report It took until the 47th over and almost 2-and-a-half hours. The fifth point which guaranteed an automatic return to Division 2A involved a combination of the two senior players, Matt Howeson & Phil Caley, and a muted celebration. By 7.10, and with 30 points attained in a rain affected match, thoughts could turn to how best to remember the success of the campaign.

The match itself, at the scenic surroundings of Eversholt, was one for the batsmen. The hosts won the toss and batted. Garratt & MacMillan added 81 in 19 overs before a mis-timed pull brought Beks Mabuza a wicket. Max Capaldi & Robbie Goddard slowed the rate and each picked up a wicket. Nichols, with 30, and Harding, with a 16-ball 33, increased the run rate as Garratt headed towards a maiden Herts League century. Goddard & Howeson picked up 2 wickets each.

Goddard departed in the second over, but Beks was in a mood for quick runs, his 53 coming from as many balls. A 45-minute break for rain reduced the target to 187 from 38 overs - in effect 117 from 23 overs. Beks departed soon after the resumption. Capaldi & Howeson picked up singles and a few boundaries but the run rate passed 7 an over as Sandipan Chandan arrived. His 38-ball half century dominated the final overs as he took on all bowlers and a few risks with the cover drive bringing up his 50. Howeson's earlier 50 came from 77 balls.

Promotion guaranteed with a game to spare. The divisional title remains a possibility with only 4 points between Saints & Bishops Stortford 2's. The final match sees us host Cockfosters whilst Stortford visit Bushey. Both matches start at 12.30pm.
