Pacific v Tower Hamlets at Springfield Park
Sat 29 Aug 2020 at 1pm
Won by six wickets
North East London Cricket League

Tower Hamlets lost the toss and were put in to bat by Pacific's captain Toby. The openers Foziu (15) and Jakir (6) looked to get THCC off to a quick start, bit tight bowling from Keyana Sapp (1-36) and Tom Game (2-27) kept things tight, taking the first three wickets in their 8 over spells. Hamlets’ middle order looked to build some nice partnerships through Pakku (20), Mitun (18), Rohin (17) and Boksh (19) and kept the score ticking over, but regular wickets taken by Aroon Korgaonkar (3-41) and a really tight spell from Phil Smith (2-19), including being on a hat-trick ball on the last ball of his 8-over spell kept the total down, with Deighan (1-1) and Rafiq (1-12) chipping in to restrict Tower Hamlets to 146 all out off 35.2 overs.

In reply, Tower Hamlets got off to a great start  with Arif (1-25) bowling Rob Dinsey in the second over, alongside Mabs (3-20) and Shan bowled a tricky opening spell. But with Chasseaud (42) at the crease, he and Williams (60) kept chipping away at the total, and with help from extras amassed a 118 run second wicket partnership to place Pacific on the verge or their first league win this season. Deighan, Burnham and Faulks took Pacific over the line in the 34th over.
