League Match vs Baring Up CC, June 1, 2013, London Fields

!!!!!! KABOOOOM !!!!!!

by "Jug Avoider"* Robin Friend

Well, he avoided scoring another century - ed

London Fields started the day knowing that they had to improve on their batting to have any chance of beating a team that were riding high, having registered two league wins already.

The toss was won and skipper Taz without hesitation decided to take the new ball. The two big Aussies Troy and Phil opened the bowling and from the off were difficult to get away. The pressure was too much and wickets began to fall. Big Phil bowled with particular control and measure, finishing his spell with two wickets for just fourteen runs conceded.

If the Baring Up batsman who were barely baring up thought things would get any easier with a change of bowling, they were sadly mistaken. "Colonel" Sanders and Tom Goodwin were the next partnership and once again made it very difficult for the incoming batsman.

Tom Goodwin finished with the brilliant figures of 4 wickets for 23 runs. He used the conditions well, finding movement and the stumps on numerous occasions.

A tight bowling and good all round fielding performance saw the Fields restrict the opposition to 128. Could they do it?!

Baring Up took the field and were chirpy and vocal from the off. Those chirps soon turned to murmurs as the opening pair of Robin Friend and Kapila Perera quickly went about their business. The Baring Up total was accomplished with relative ease in the 20th over, Robin finishing on 95* and Kapila on 26*.

London Fields win by 10 wickets !!!!!! KABOOOOM !!!!!! Beer o’clock begins early !!!!!! KABOOOOM !!!!!! The sun is shining !!!!!! KABOOOOM !!!!!!
