Lost in the mind
Pacific v Sky (aka Mola Jutt) at Victoria Park Pitch 1  Thu 13-May-2004 at 6.30pm
Lost 69 runs
 

The news of Braden's illness hit Pacific's preperations hard in what was always going to be the toughest match in this year's campaign. Dougal DeKeller's non appearance compounded this but despite the loss of the 2 strongest batters, Pacific rallied. Cowling & Faisal - both in the form of their lives - bowled superbly & Faisal in particular was unlucky not to have added to his 2 wickets & catch. The change bowling was less effective & both Hollman & Davies were creamed in particular by Imran who scored 4 6s in his 39 not out.

In reply, a 10 an over run rate required was a big ask as Riz tore out Hollman & Davis & with Faisal having his leg stump uprooted by Imran, Pacific were reeling with no where to go at 25-3 & with just 2 wickets in hand.

Sky were worthy winners by far & as title holders, & with their competitive approach fully deserve their favourites tag.

VIII Steve Emmins*, Martin Cowling, Lucius Faisal, Peter Hollman , Jim Davies, Dougal DeKeller , Braden Grigg & Sammy Purcell .
