Ahmed propels us to top flight
Pacific v Victoria Lounge at Victoria Park Pitch 1
Mon 16 May 2011 at 6pm
Won 2 wickets
Victoria Park Community Cricket League fixture

A game both sides wanted to lose and which the Lounge achieved their aim.

Notes:

Ritwick was given out hit wicket when trying to recover his ground to prevent himself being out stumped.  Apparently this decision by Matt was contrary to rules so it was hard luck on Ritwick.

Ritwick does however need to improve his speed of batting, not his run rate mind - in rapidly fading daylight batting like Trott does not help.

Catching was good although not entirely clean as James's ample midriff spared his blushes.

Justin scored off ten consecutive balls.
