Glory ours in the final over
Pacific v Damazan CC at Damazan CC  Tue 27-Aug-2013 at 1pm
Won 3 wickets
 

At the beautiful surrounds of Damazan, bordered on one side by a serene lake and on the other by a field of corn. Thanks to wickets from Tony Tambyraja and runs from Oli Haill, Aroon Korgaonkar and Nuggsy Gleadow, Pacific chased down the total with one ball to go, with Adrian Duthie's non-cricketing son Ashley completing the winning run, after Nuggs was suicidally run out in the last over. 

Nuggsy's emergence from his nurdling chrysalis as a breezily cover-driving butterfly was one of the wonders of the tour. Confidence is a wonderful thing, and Nuggsy has now realised he has a wider array of weapons in his batting locker than the dabs and cuts that once represented his armoury.

Summary -

Sunny and warm but not roasting

Aroon skippers and inserts oppo

Damazan make 193 all out - Tony gets three wickets, Nuggsy two, Aroon two (including one lady)

Reply in trouble early on but Oli 45, Aroon 41*, Nuggsy 58 punish the change bowling to steer us home in last over

Oppo give us fine bottle of Buzet
