Abbots Langley 184-7 Knebworth Park 2nds 188-6

A SIZZLING century from Adam Ezekiel brought Knebworth Park's 2nd XI their second league win of the season on Saturday.

Ezekiel batted brilliantly for 125 not out as Knebworth beat Abbots Langley in Saracens Herts Division Two.

Abbots Langley chose to bat first and opening bowler Jack Thorn claimed two early wickets.

The Park then failed to capitalise and let the game slip beyond their control.

At drinks, Abbots Langley had reached 100-2 and a good score looked on the cards.

Skipper Shaun Robinson and veteran Graham Fisher were introduced to the attack to take the pace of the ball.

Three wickets from Robinson and one from Fisher put Park back on top, with Abbots eventually making 184-7 off their 53 overs.

The Park's reply suffered an early setback with the loss of opener Louis Champion for a duck in the third over.

This only brought match-winner Ezekiel to the crease and he and Colin Letford built a decent partnership.

Letford fell for 28 but Ezekiel batted superbly and quickly reached his 50.

Ezekiel proved to be the deciding factor in the game as the Park middle order offered little support.

With 40 needed off the last 12 overs, Ezekiel moved up a gear and dispatched the Abbots Langley bowling to all corners off the ground in his innings of 125 not out.

Sam Jones eventually hit the winning runs with his trademark whip shot over mid-wicket with five overs to spare.
