Pacific end MEIL campaign on a high
Pacific v Graces at Highgate CC
Sun 22 Sep 2019 at 12.30pm
Won by 4 wickets
Middlesex & Essex Invitation League

Pacific beat league winners Graces with an over to spare in a rain-affected but enjoyable encounter at Highgate.

The oppo had the good 'grace' to declare with just 208 on the board after several stoppages for rain, leaving us with just over 30 overs to bat and needing 6.5 an over to win. 

After a wobbly start, a dominant 78 from Sumeet helped Pacific chase down the total fairly comfortably, Ireland boshing a six into the bushes to end the match in the penultimate over. 

Full report to come...
