Saturday 1st XI Away v Eversholt - Abandoned

Eversholt 193-8, St Margaretsbury 59-1
Match abandoned
Saracens Herts Cricket League division 2B
THE weather intervened for the second weekend in a row as St Margaretsbury’s match at Eversholt was abandoned.
Saturday’s match was intriguingly poised when the rain halted play with the visitors on 59-1 in reply to Eversholt’s total of 193-8.
It left Saints in third spot after they had earlier won the toss and put the hosts in.
The decision was rewarded as Mike Naylor took two early wickets with Eversholt slipping to 7-2.
The hosts consolidated before their captain Jake Nicholls came in at number five.
He made an aggressive 45 before he became the third of Darren Shanley’s four victims being caught behind by Stuart Hitch.
This left Eversholt, who had been 76-5, still struggling on 109-6 but the late order resisted well with Alex Rennie making an invaluable 37.
The home side totalled 193-8 with Shanley claiming 4-36 from 15 overs and Naylor and Nick Sheffield (2-47) and Naylor (2-34) being the other wicket takers.
In reply St Margaretsbury lost an early wicket with Andrew Parker being trapped lbw for 0 with the score on 4.
Giles Tilbury was joined by James Barbett and the pair put an unbroken 55. Tilbury made a solid 20 not out and Barbett scored 29 not out before the elements had the final say.
As only 20 overs were bowled in the second innings, each team were given 10 points for an abandoned game.
In division 7B, Dan Blair provided the highlight with a hard-hitting 65 not out in St Margaretsbury II’s innings of 188-9 against Hatch End. The rain grew heavier in the tea interval and the match was abandoned.
In Regional Division A East, David Brown scored 58 as St Margaretsbury III made 205 all out before rain resulted in their match at Botany Bay III being cancelled.
