An impressive innings of 100 by wicketkeeper Michael Rayner just failed to enable the seconds to pull off a win over Luton Town & Indians.
He was seemingly steering the Park to victory until he was trapped lbw a couple overs from the end, leaving them 11 short of winning.
Apart from useful contributions from openers Ryan Skeggs and Adrian Holmes and a brief cameo from Alex Richmond, the rest of the batting did not provide Rayner with enough support on an excellent batting track and the game ended in a draw.
Luton had won the toss and made it hard work for Knebworth, with skipper Guy Warman taking four wickets including two in two balls to stem the flow of runs.
Ben Orchard had made the early breakthrough before Warman struck.
Graham Fisher bowled tightly from one end to slowly reduce the run rate.
Knebworth were let down my some poor fielding throughout the day which allowed Luton to achieve 215/8 in their 53 overs.
Then came Rayner’s solo batting effort.
