League Match vs The Camel CC, Sat 17th August 2019, Springfield Park

by Paul Teasdale

London Fields returned to winning ways with a 130 run win over The Camel. On a spongy Springfields, after the recent rain, The Camel asked LFCC to bat first. Fields lost early wickets to some tight bowling from Camel openers Kit and Sam and were 64-3. Rebuilding to 96-4 at drinks, left handers Hitesh Naik and Paul Teasdale forged a partnership while steadily upping the run rate. Hitesh accelerated to a quick fire 56 with Teasdale batting through to reach 84 before being caught in the last over. Some late hitting from Troy Utz (22*) took LFCC to a daunting score of 278.

The Camel set about the chase watchfully with the first three overs remaining scoreless. Opener Brendan began to open up, punishing anything short, before falling LBW for 33 to tall off spinner Dhawal who ended up taking six wickets with his steep turn and bounce. Phil Clark took 3 in a miserly opening spell with good support from wicketless Tom Damant who nonetheless finished with impressive figures of 6-3-19-0. Wickets continued to fall regularly with only counter attacking Hugo (21) and some late clean striking from Quinn (43*) offering much resistance. The Camel eventually ended all out for 148.
