Pacific 64-4. Southgate 66-2.
A calamatous build up with 2 key withdrawals within 18 hours of the start left the campaign lacking credibility. And so it proved.
Vice Captain Rob Bastin reports "I won the toss and elected to bat. We were 65 for 4 (I think Duthie 39*,
22 wides). We started with 4 players (until John turned up in the third over) and all four wickets were runouts. They got 66 for 2 off 6.2. Rizwan got 1 for 20 off 2.2 overs. I got 1 for 24 off 2 overs. Vaibhav
took a catch off Rizwan and a stumping off me. Joe Phelan sub-fielded."
VI:- John Baglivi*, Adrian Duthie, Vaibhav Puri, Rizwan Shaukat, Rob Bastin+, (Sub: Joe Phelan).
