Friendly Match vs Homerton CC, Sun 12th May 2019, London Fields

London Fields (57 all out) lost to Homerton CC (60-7) by 3 wickets

by Upendra Singh Gusain

It looked like a beautiful day for cricket. We were sent in to bat by the opposition. Everything was moving at a leisurely pace when suddenly the wickets starting falling at regular intervals. Mr Brown from the opposition did the most damage taking the wickets of Robin, Dhawal and Chris M, all bowled out thanks in parts to the tricky/damp-ish wicket. Sadly there never was a resurrection after that and we could only muster 57 runs in total, with Ben S top scoring with his 14 as the opener.

With not much of a lunch in between, London Fields' bowling started with Muffi taking a wicket in his very first over. He and Upendra had a very potent spell together claiming 6 wickets between them. It looked at the time that anything could happen. Even though the good bowling continued with Alex and Tyrone, alas 57 were never going to be enough. Still a closely fought match.
