Sawbridgeworth 198-10 North Mymms 140-10

HERTS academy player Rhys Wynne smashed 74 runs but it wasn't enough as North Mymms slipped to defeat against Sawbridgeworth on Saturday.

Wynne batted with great maturity but bottom club Mymms are still searching for their first win of the season in HCPL Division Two (East).

Home side captain Danny Wilson chose to bat first on a wicket that looked as if it would deteriorate as the match went on.

Young Sawbo opener Steve Ashman (67) batted positively on a wicket which had unpredictable bounce.

An innings of peaks and troughs saw Sawbo scrabble their way up to 198 all out.

A seventh wicket stand by William Jones (44) and Paul Read (28) saw the home side set a competitive total.

Andrew Hicks (3-50) and Suhaib Sarwar (3-40) were the highlights of the Mymms attack.

A loose start from overseas bowler Andrew Richardson saw Mymms get off to a swift start, with Wynne latching onto some short-pitched bowling.

A large extras tally saw Mymms get over 30 runs after only the first three overs.

However, Richardson started to find his range, removing opener Sarwar for a duck.

Some poor shot selections from Mymms' in-form top six batsmen left Wynne with no partners to win the match.

However, he dominated the innings and continued playing positively to hit 72 runs by tea.

Unfortunately, Wynne only added two runs to his tally after the break.

He was out when the ball pitched on a length and rolled along the floor, hitting the base of his stumps.

With captain Neil Black (19) being the only other Mymms batsmen to score double figures, the game was lost with the bat.

Cunningham bowled superbly, removing Wynne and the bottom order to finish with figures of 5-15 off just eight overs.

Mymms remain positive for their upcoming league games and are looking forward to their next match against Langleybury at Home Farm on Saturday.
