HAINAULT & CLAYHALL v Gidea Park & Romford Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 19 Jul 2008 at 11.30AM
Gidea Park & Romford Cricket Club Lost by 61 runs 6 points

Match report Park lost by 61 runs in the 20th over of the last hour as Ash Ahmed bowled Ejaz Khan.

Park bowled well with such a strong wind to contend with Ejaz Khan with some amazing efforts into the wind. Poor fielding at times and numerous chances going to ground saw H&C get far more than they should have done. Park were well below par in the standards of fielding that they set this season. Mo Ismail being dropped on 20 before going on to complete a fine century. H&C with only 4 50's as a team to their names all season really did not look like anyone else wanted to stay around. Chances going a miss saw them post 238-9 which was a chaseable score. Ali Aslam completing a hatrick and final figures of 6-68 was the obvious pick of the bowlers.

Park were soon in trouble with rapid loss of wickets leaving them 87-6 seeing them out of the game.

But a slow over rate saw H&C start their last hour at 6.58 and with poor light and the game out of their reach H&C were able to rush through their overs in the last hour, as Park fought for a draw where runs were hard to come by (
with Chou Choudhary the only notable score of 57) and in some respects irrelevant in a game now well set up for the hosts as Park had to settle now for a fight to a draw.On a now turning wicket and effectively Park well out the game H&C managed to cram in an extra 3 overs in the last hour and took the required last 2 wickets in faded light light and with their seam bowlers unable to bowl due to the poor light. Ali Aslam 29 and Donovan Miller fought off defeat but with Miller being caught in the 18th over , Ali had to watch on as unfortuante Ejaz was bowled by Ash Ahmed with the first ball of the 20th over.
A game which Park will look back on as a very disappointing result
H&C picking up 25 points and helping their quest for safety. Irfan Shah picking up 5- 56 on a day dominated by the slower bowlers
