Webley Bastin Partnership Light Up longest day
Pacific v Thames Ditton CC at Thames Ditton Cricket Club  Sun 21-Jun-2009 at 2pm
Won 4 runs
 

Pacific returned to winning ways on a warm sunny day in South London. Sadly there was no sight of any former West Indian test stars. A rare prompt start saw Pacific bat first on a green and worn wicket. Skipper Atkin looked good until being well caught at point, Pete Hollman was bowled playing across the line and then Tempany was bowled in similar fashion having biffed four fours from five balls.

This brought Bastin and Webley together. They had some luck due to a poor fielding performance from the opposition as they composed a record 4th wicket partnership of 179. Webley made steady progress to a fourth consecutive fifty plus score before opening up to hit a record 9th hundred for the club. A big ground with a lightning outfield gave full value to his placement and timing. Bastin played a supporting role as he knocked singles and scampered rapidly between the wickets.

A great tea was wolfed down whilst watching the World Twenty20 final.

The Thames Ditton reply got off to a good start despite Alexander’s fine catch at point of one the openers. The TD number three looked a class above everyone else – especially when dismantling the unfortunate Korgaonkar. The game looked to be slipping way until he smashed a Gleadow long hop right down Roberts throat on the midwicket (and longest) boundary. Gleadow and Atkin pegged back the oppo’s progress but missed chances in the field by Rees and Webley allowed Thames Ditton to stay in the game. Rees snared a fine caught and bowled of their opener who made 98 on returning to the attack and Tempany made a terrific run out but the game was always in the balance down to the final ball when six was needed but only a couple were scampered.

A great team performance with Webbo’s hundred, Alexander and Tempany fielding with magnificent commitment and Rees and Gleadow’s miserly bowling.

Stats Corner: Jon's 4th score of 50 or more in consecutive innings equals the record held by John McDougall.

The final word from St John Farley of TD "What a great game. I was going to drop you a note to say how much we all enjoyed it. So good to play in a hard fought ‘friendly’ – shows a game can be competitive without all the whining you get in league games. Thanks for staying for a few beers and we’ll get that in the diary for next year. Cheers"

News to raise an eyebrow

Also "I was saying to Shayne that RR has promised to play a number of Sunday games for us. So if you want to do something around that – game, barbeque beers with RR that would be great."
