Strong Aroon Not Enough
Pacific v Strongroom CC at Highgate Wood  Sat 04 Sep 2010 at 1.30pm
Lost 1 wicket
Friendly fixture
 

Pacific won the toss and batted first on a slow low grubber of a pitch. Scoring was difficult due to the conditions and some excellent fielding from our hosts. Tempany was the only batsman to get to grips with the lack of pace to hit a superb 60. A real captains knock whilst the rest faltered with a healthy mix of poor shots and good catches. Crucially we didnt manage to bat our alloted forty overs.

In the field Strongroom started sensibly with some positive running between the wickets putting pressure on the field. Smith and Brown had little luck on a pitch offering absolutely nothing to a seamer. Webley bowled with gusto and snared two wickets whilst keeping it tight. The introduction of Aroon turned the tide towards Pacific with an alluring cocktail of full bungers and unplayable deliveries he cunningly disposed of six Strongroom wickets. Pacific felt in the ascendancy but with such a low score to defend we were unable to take the final wicket with inside edges past the stumps and skiers not falling to hand.

A good match but one Pacific might have won with a little more discipline with the bat. Strongroom visit Fortress Wray in October which should play a little differently to the lifeless patch seen at Highgate.
