Played at Victoria Park, pitch 1
Report by George Watson and Tim Castle

A washout almost stopped any hope of play, but with the clouds dissipating, the sun poured out across the park as this and one other match survived the heavens.

London Eagles maintained their unbeaten start to the season as they made light work of Old Fallopians 2 on pitch 1.

With the match reduced to 13 overs, the Fallopians batted first and started strong. Jack Holmes and Matt Wake shared a 44-run opening stand. Masum Ahmed broke up the partnership by bowling Wake through the gate for eight.

Anthony Banks departed for six when he lofted the ball upwards for a confident caught and bowled for Alomgir Ali.

Holmes and Stebbins continued at pace for the remainder of the innings. Holmes finished unbeaten on 47. Stebbins was not out for 23 including a non-boundary four, run punishingly between the wickets, as the Old Fallopians closed on 123-2.

Attacking left-hander AZM Johnny started strong for the Eagles, finding boundaries across the park as he and Apu Chanda started in typically aggressive fashion. The pair shared an impressive 60-run stand before Apu was run out for 30 from a throw by Sal Mahmood to the non-striker’s end with bowler Jacob Wolff quickly removing the bails.

Johnny found six boundaries as he motored towards victory, before he fell at the death, two short of his half century. He was removed by Jack Holmes who managed to cling on to high-struck ball, despite the low sun full in his eyes.

Two sixes at the end from Jamil Ahmed (18) eased the Eagles home on 129-2, in just 10.3 overs.
