Harlow lose to Hadleigh

Harlow lost the toss and were asked to field 1st on an extremely batsmen friendly wicket on a hot sunny day.

Harlow bowlers were less successful as previous weeks and couldn’t make an early in road through Hadleighs batting. An opening partnership of 119 between Paul Tibbenham and Austin Holmes had set Hadleigh up for the rest of the batting to come in with a licence to hit on the batsmen friendly wicket. After the later was was caught behind for 32 by the spin bowling of Hafiz Yawar, Hadleigh did just that with captain Adam Soilleux coming to the crease scoring 73 of 53 balls. It wasn’t till the back end of the innings till harlow saw any wickets as Luke Monger was reintroduced to the attack and picked up 3 wickets. Tibbenham continued to bat through and scored a chance less 113, until trying to up the run rate and being bowled by Lewis Aldred in the 45th over. After being introduced to the 1st team Monger was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/42 out of an extremely wayward Harlow attack which bowled 51 extras. Adding to Hadleighs total of 332/5.

In reply, Harlows start was taking good shape with a partnership of 48 between Hafiz Yawar and young Alan Jones before the later was found stumped for 17 of the bowling of David Williams. Yawar was joined by skipper Rehman Ahmed and combined a partnership of 67 before Ahmed was given caught behind for 23. The game was now in the balance but Harlow batsmen couldn’t stay long enough to support Yawars effort at the crease who went on to score 116. Harlow were eventually bowled out for 254 in 47 overs. The wickets being shared between all six of Hadleigh’s bowlers.

Harlow look to get back on track next week away to Hainault & Clayhall.
