The sun glistened on Vikki Park as the Council's very own Tower Cavaliers played their first league match of the season against the founder members of the Victoria Park Community Cricket League, Homerton Cricket Club (aka Chats Palace).

The Cavaliers captain, Stephen Chelski Williams won the toss and elected to bat. An opening partnership of 78 was halted when Stephen Chelski Williams was adjudged LBW for 39.

This bought Vice captain, Cain KiNG Duncan, to the wicket, who fired a very quick 34 until holeing out to long leg for 34. Alkesh LORD LUCAN Solanki joined the sunny party to support Andrew Deadly Dickson, who retired after amassing 50 runs....

This bought Kenneth Marshall LAW to crease who finished off the innings 11 not out and Alkesh LORD LUCAN Solanki 18 not out. 172-2 off 16 overs. Bowling wise it was a case of complete control with the Cavaliers DARK KNIGHT Maroof Ahmed rising to take 2 for 20 and Cain KiNG Duncan 3 for 16.

Homerton where bowled out for 90 off 12 overs. The only blip was the tough over that off breaker specialist, Phil the POWER Price, had to endure. He bowled one over for 17 runs....bad day at black rock for the Power.

But amends made when the POWER snappled up a catch off the KiNG at Gully....Without a doubt a TOP GUN moment....maverick' even. The POWER had ice running through his veins - just don't try that home.

However in amongst the POWER's ice man moment, there was a moment of clarity when he juggled thrice the ball to prevent LORD LUCAN taking a wicket. Cunningly LORD LUCAN returned the gesture thus preventing the POWER taking a wicket off that aforementioned bad day at black rock' over.

And a warm hand to Rob E Waugh (not Steve) for umpiring with aplomb.
