Crashed & Burned ... but inconsequential
Pacific v Barnet Bs CC at Middx Ckt Academy  Sun 24-Nov-2002 at 5.30pm
Lost 60 runs
 

The final group match began with qualification assured but not knowing whether as group leaders or runners up. Sadly, the foot came off the pedal completely & a poor performance with the ball & in the field was sadly compounded by an appalling display of batting. There were exceptions with Tim Marshall giving the ball more air & turn & returned the best figures.

There were no wickets to a bowler however - but 5 run outs. Ultimately those wickets lost by Barnet when progressing from 91-1 to 110-5 could mean their failure to progress with Hertford 2 needing to win their last game & edge out Barnet at their expense. This made for some interesting banter with Barnet keeper - Josh Knappett advising Captain John Baglivi when 5 down & needing 88 runs off 5 overs with 1 wicket in hand that "the pressure was on John". John's cool response was that there was no pressure because unless Barnet could take another NINE wickets, Pacific's place was assured - so John just batted out the overs unperturbed. This amusing aside however, does nothing to gloss over an appalling batting display7-0 off 1 became 10-3 off 2- the game was virtually up from there. Matt Ralph was even out withoutfacing. No room for complacency if Pacific are to progress further then.

B 110-5 T Marshall 3-0-17-0. Bat 2(Cap with pony tail) 35

P 50-5 J Baglivi 20*. Bowler 2 (Cap with Pony tail) 3-0-8-2
