The cursed Blackwall tunnel almost put paid to Cally's premier league
aspirations. Fortunately two boundary-traddling 'Stella Swigging Hobos' (in
the best possible taste) rescued the day for a below par Cally's Team.
Taking the field with 6 players, the skipper found Dave Weekes and 'Fuz'
Lawrence enjoying a drink on a warm evening. They kindly accepted the
invitation to represent the Cally's for the evenings proceedings. The former
cricketers left on the scrap heap of life were re-juvenated! and what a find
they turned out to be.
London Fields batted first and started at over 10-an-over plundering 61 off
the first 5 overs. Fortunately Dave Weekes and M Siddiqui came on to put the
brakes on to the London Fields innings. London Fields posted a challenging
147 off thier allotted 16 overs.
Mohammed Fazal and Bazlul Haque started the Cally's innings at over 12 runs
an over posting 72 inside the first 6 overs. Two quick wickets put the Cally's
on the back foot. Cally's were kept in the chase by Amir Khan who hit a
match winning 37 before being cleanly bowled by Paul the London Fields 'all
Last over Rick Daives Joined M Siddiqui with 7 to get. Siddiqui got a
boundary early in the over putting the pressure back on London Fields. One
wide ball and a single stolen meant scores were tied with two deliveries to
Rick Davies drove Chris straight past a wide mid-off to snatch victory
from the jaws of defeat for the Cally's. Great game played in good spirit.
Exciting and tight game won off the last ball. Played in good spirits
despite oppo not being ready to start until 6.45!
