Outgunned Again
Pacific v Black Rose of Highgate CC at Broxbourne Sports Club  Sun 23-Sep-2007 at 12.30pm
Lost 54 runs
 

A batting loaded line up but outgunned by the Rose again. As Felix Middleton from BRoH said "Shah and Andre went a bit mental towards the end, Shah ended up with 124!"

JG reports Broxbourne CC was a sunny windswept venue for the clash against Black Rose of Highgate. Jon Webley won the toss and inserted Black Rose in this 40 over contest.

Black Rose got off to a slow start with Gleadow (6-3-9-0) and Haill (8-2-27-0) particularly restricting them. They had reached only 73/1 off 20 overs when Shah chipped the eternally unlucky Smith back over his head - it should have been an easy catch for either Bennett or Gleadow but neither committed and the ball landed safely between them. That mistake turned out to be very costly as Shah opened up superbly and blasted a 120 odd. He was also joined by Mishra who smashed some huge sixes in a quickfire fifty.

Despite Jon Webley's four wickets Pacific conceded nearly 200 runs in the last twenty to allow Black Rose to finish 268 off their 40 overs. Pacific's high catching let them down again as there were three more drops in the last five overs.

The tea was an unusually scrappy and disordered affair that left most disappointed.

The Pacific reply started well as Tom Webley (who has a first class average of 35 from his time playing for Somerset and Cambridge UCCE) making a well crafted 59 on debut. Brother Jon supported him well and a score of 110/1 off 20 overs looked like a good launch pad. However, Black Rose were extremely negative in spreading the field and Pacific's batters could not clear the boundary in the way Shah and Mishra did earlier.

Lay, Egan and Holliday all made double figures as the light faded but there no substantial support for Jon, who made 69. Holliday scored a controversial 8 (an all run 4 and 4 overthrows) when the match had gone.

Defeat by 54 runs.

MotM: Shah 120 odd and bowled well

Pacific MotM: Jon Webley 69 and 4-58
