Nothing Compares To-by
Pacific v Purple Reign CC at Wray Crescent  Sat 15-Oct-2011 at 11.30am
Won by 17 runs
 

A lovely sunny day saw Toby Chasseaud reign supreme with 160 not out. Pacific had been in trouble at 65 for three when Toby came to the crease. When Forhad fell, they were 70 for 4. But, after a watchful start, Toby got into his groove and reached his century off 67 balls. With Vincent supporting him at the other end, he unleashed 22 fours and eight sixes. Vincent's wicket brought Kieran to the middle for the last two overs. Although he faced only one ball, he and Toby put on a partnership of 39. Toby had the strike for the final over and made the most of the opportunity, smashing 26 in six balls as follows: 4,2,6,6,4,4. Toby's heroics took Pacific to 268 for 6.

In reply, London Fields regulars Jason Lord (87) and Robin Friend (80) brought Purple Reign within sight of victory, but when they fell the team could only finish short on 251 thanks to four wickets from skipper Jon Webley.

Purple Reign captain Ben Boorman said: "What a fantastic day out. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves. And a close game too, played in the right spirit. A shame for us that Toby batted out of his skin as I thought that at 91 for 5 it was going to be a whitewash!"

STAT WATCH:
• Toby's 160 not out was the third highest score in Pacific's 28-year history. In July 2010, Jon Webley hit 195 not out against Parkfield & Headstone. And in August 2010, Jon hit 163 not out against Eymet.
• Toby's 160 not out was Pacific's highest ever score by a No 5 batsman. The previous highest was Darren Tempany's 134 not out against Black Rose in September 2009.
• Toby's previous highest score was 142 against North Middlesex in 2009, his first season for the club.
• Toby and Vincent's 138 partnership was Pacific's highest for the 6th wicket. The previous highest was 124 not out set by Dougall De Keller and Jim Davies against Tower Ravens in April 2002.
