This allowed Harpenden to reach a very competitive total of 215-9 in theIr 40 overs. Special mention to Piper for his 3-26 in 8 overs and Lee for two spectacular catches on the boundary.
The Letchworth innings struggled from the off against some strong Harpenden bowling. At halfway they had reached 54-3 and any real chance of victory had slipped away.
