|May 16, 2002||vs Pacific||Lost by six wickets|
Bored to death
Your reporter arrived late at this Wray Crescent fixture, but the result of Philip Barrass's return to captaincy was only too evident.
A dejected ragbag of Old Fallopian allsorts was limping apathetically around the lumpy pitch, reduced to gathering up the boundary balls as crack Pacific marksmen slaughtered the sacrificial bowling.
Only this reporter's promise of a warm flask of ale for each man that completed the session kept the demoralised crew on the wicket.
But in even this sorry morass there were some able to rise out of the swamp of defeat.
David Sultanti, ignoring doctor's orders, risked his big toe to open and top the score with 23. Freddie Barrass took our only wicket. And Mike Holden notched up his debut single.
