Waltham X Rosedale I v London Colney Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 04 Jul 2009 at 1.30pm
London Colney Cricket Club Lost by six wickets, defending 255

Match report The weekend saw London Colney travel to Waltham Cross Rosedale, looking for a win after two blank weekends, but in the end have to accept that they just didn’t bowl well enough to follow up a fine batting performance, after they lost the toss and were asked to bat first. Colney’s innings was basically about one man, opener Adam Buckmaster, who hit a magnificent 145 as the visitors piled on the runs, including an opening stand of 113 with John Jenkins (42) making his first appearance of the season. For Waltham Cross Rosedale, Parmar took 4-55 and was comfortably the pick of the bowlers, as Colney cruised to 255-5 before skipper Scott Hadley declared in after 50 overs.

Rosedale’s is a ground where big scores can be made, and the home side would have felt that the declaration gave them a chance. Hadley couldn’t have expected his team to bowl so badly though, even without two of their main wicket takers as they were. No Waltham Cross Rosedale batsman made a big score, but none needed to as Parmar (37), Edwards (48) Gentle (55) and Leverstock (61) profited against bowling that lacked any consistency or threat, with only David Goff (1-24) seeming able to bowl straight. Matt Bristow took two wickets but at a cost of 82, and the rest will probably want to forget their day, as Rosedale cruised home with an over and 6 wickets to spare.
