Yates sets target
Pacific v Seniors XI v Juniors XI at Wray Crescent
Sat 17 Apr 1999
 Seniors won by 22 runs (D/L)
Friendly fixture

A low key start in slightly unwelcoming weather but the weather spoiling what would have been an exciting finale. The Seniors had posted a challenging 200 + total lead by Leon Yates & with 4 bowlers picking up 1 wicket each - nobody seemed to stand out.

S: 201-6 (40 overs). L Yates 70. J Phelan 29. J Mitchell 4-0-26-1
J: 113-5 (30.3). D Murray 45*. N Wright 8-0-33-2

The reply was built around David Murray¹s unbeaten 45 & with him still there, anything could have been possible when the rain curtailed the match after 15 overs with the score 113-5 needing another 89 at 9.88 runs reqd per over & with 5 wickets in hand only Duckworth/Lewis could predict the outcome. Thanks to the Juniors Captain, Ian Lay, who encouraged me to check.
