Batters Royally Rumbled. Again
Pacific v Bloomsbury Royals CC at Springfield Park  Sat 27 Apr 2019 at 1pm
Lost by 62 runs
North East London Cricket League
 

After a promising bowling and fielding display in windy conditions, Pacific collapsed to their second sub-70 total in as many weeks.

Quick summary: 

  • A gale-force North-westerly blew for most of the day, slanting across a typically lively (i.e mental) Springfield Park pitch  
  • Pacific bowled out Bloomsbury for 131 (T Garret 3-4 / T Ireland 3-24) but collapsed to just 69 (Chasseaud 21)
  • Shahil's slingy, wind-assisted pace too good for Pacific - he finishes with a remarkable 6-6  
  • Pacific's sorry innings brings more ducks (five) than boundaries (three) 
  • Just hours after a strongly-worded text warning of fines for those not wearing whites, Toby bowls in a grey anorak 

 Full report to come (although does anyone really need any to hear more?)
