A fielding performance to honour Rob
Pacific v Strongroom CC at Highgate Woods  Sat 25-Jun-2011 at 1.30pm
Won 25 runs
 

A fine, hard-earned victory over long-time rivals Strongroom in a match played in a fine spirit at a damp but eventually brilliantly sunny Highgate Woods. Cricket very much the winner.
After losing the toss, Toby Chasseaud led the way with a patient, straight-batted 60* to give us a total of 136. Tom and Giaco opened the bowling and did very well and then Garry swung the ball to get four wickets as first change. Tony picked two wickets - including one that bounced three times (thankfully it took the smallest of deflections off the batsman before the third bounce) to bowl the batsman. The fielding was the best this reporter has seen for the club. OK, Matt dropped one behind and Tom and Toby also spurned difficult chances but it was a superb effort by everyone. Jon's first catch at short cover was sheer reaction speed to pluck a hammered cover drive out of the air, Abhinav reacted very quickly at square leg to pick a flick off the legs and then James's one-handed dive at mid-wicket to catch the number 8. Toby's ground fielding set the example for the team to follow.
The Skipper said afterwards: "The pitch was a pudding after all the rain on Friday night so I had to be really patient. Boycott would have been proud! Good match considering we had far worse batting conditions! And we fielded well for once!
