Pacific broke into previously uncharted territory following a 3rd consecutive win in Pool B of the Middlesex Indoor League - Eastern Division. This time it was by a comfortable margin of 12 runs against group leaders &
favourites - Hertford 2.
Having been inserted, Pacific's shot selections & running was superb with all the top 3 retiring & the score reaching 76 before the 1st wicket fell -
John Baglivi run out. With Tim Marshall also getting run out without facing & Guy Wiehahn - another debutante being dismissed similarly, Steve & Matt
were both able to resume & continue their highly successful partnership.
The bowling did not match the same heights although John Baglivi stood out as the most potent as well as the most economical. The fielding lead by Tim Marshall with 2 catches was also superb & despite Hertford 2 reaching 53-1 at the half way stage, Matt Ralph bowling the final over was never going to concede 21 runs & therefore defeat.
P: 115-3 S Lay 35*, M Ralph 35*, D Murray 24*. Young 2-0-18-0
H2: 103-4. A N Other (1bat) 37. J Baglivi 3-0-23-2. M Ralph 3-0-24-1
P won by 12 runs
