Clements bags second ton but not enough to defeat Panesar and co
- Credit: Archant
Ben Clements second successive century was not enough to grab victory at Totteridge Millhillians.
Clements made 108 as Harpenden raced to 259-6 in 60 overs before declaring and bringing Millhillians to the crease.
And they came close to bowling out the hosts, who finished on 210-8 at the close, as the match finished on a draw.
Having won the toss, Harpenden chose to bat.
Gregg Cooper’s dismissal for six brought Clements out from the pavillion.
And even against the potent Totteridge attack, which included former England spinners John Emburey and Monty Panesar, Clements was in imperious form.
He was eventually dismissed for 108, his fourth century of the season, stumped off the bowling of Emburey.

He landed 13 fours and one six facing 137 balls.
In reply Totteridge started well, thanks to the batting of Justin Le Fort (58) and Shaun O’Brien (46).
But once they went Millhillians were at 142-5.
But a stubborn 50 by Simon Webster and dogged resistance from the tail kept victory out of Harpenden’s reach.
