League Match vs Tower Hamlets CC, Aug. 25, 2018, Millfields

London Fields (103-4) beat Tower Hamlets (97 all out)

by Rupert Ekblom

Tower Hamlets started rapidly with both openers scoring several boundaries through the off side, the highlight being a six lifted over deep cover. LFCC's opening bowlers Clarke and Sayer put a number of balls past the bat and their patience was rewarded as they tightened up the scoring and ended up with five wickets between them, assisted by some sharp catching. Dave Miller came on first change and was unrelenting through a tight 7 over spell which brought 3 wickets, aided by several good catches by Ruby Quince. Tower Hamlets finished on 97 all out after 29 overs.

LFCC started their response with at gallop, Teasdale and Barrett keeping out some sharp swing bowling while punishing anything short in particular, Teasdale pulling four sixes over square leg in a rapid 35. Barrett nailed a few himself including a sweetly timed four through midwicket, though also took a glancing blow above the eye when taking a similarly aggressive approach to a short one. Once LFCC's openers had been dismissed, Tower Hamlets' seamers bagged a couple more before some clean hitting from Vijay Shah and Ruby Quince sealed the chase with 28 overs to spare.
