The Need To Spook
Pacific v Chiswick CC PKA Turnham Green & Polytechnic CC at Fullers Sports Club  Sat 04-May-2013 at 1pm
Lost 137 Runs
 

Outplayed in all departments by the slick league outfit who were happy to use the game for their players' match practice ahead of their Middlesex Championship Division 1 campaign which starts next week.

A draw for the visitors was not out of sight despite the disparity in strength between the two XIs thanks in the main to a 13 over partnership between Toby Chasseaud & Luke Hollman but such was the determined resistance by the latter even after Toby was out that league gamesmanship was employed and effected and the moral highground if not the victory or even the draw was securely claimed.

The home side could therefore feel pleased with themselves that the tactic paid off and 17 balls later and with the addition of one more run the win was theirs nine balls away from an undeserved draw.

Earlier the moment of the match was Stu Hopper's brilliant catch to dismiss opener Lush for 7 off Darryl Roberts playing his first game for two years but captain Peter Lovell 62 retired out and D Sharma's 57 took the game beyond Pacific's control as catching opportunities were not taken and still more room left to improve ground fielding.

Batting opener Steve Richards looked the most assured as he and Oli Creese seemed to be buiding but the extra pace of Sanger did for the latter and another quad pull for the former left him short of his ground before the subsititute runner could reach the middle. TG&P's bowlers showed good quality lines and litle to hit except only for the Hollman/Chasseaud defensive resisitance which was ultimatley to no avail when David Power, making his first appearnace for 20 years, was bowled.

Scorer: Chris Clayton

Umpire: P Hollman
