Played at Highams Park
Report by Hassan Khan

The second match in three weeks against the Hawks was a tough fixture. Having been skittled for 150ish previously, Hawks were set on revenge and played ruthless cricket.

Keen to bowl all-comers, I elected to field on a featherbed wicket. A superb early spell from Junaid and Umair saw Hawks at 21-1 after 8 overs. But from here our bowlers toiled in scorching heat.

Opener Kaz, dropped three times, took full advantage with a belligerent 100 and was matched by Williams at number three. All the bowlers were put to the sword as Hawks flew to 263-1 from 35 overs. OFCC debutant Anand Kumar deserves a special mention for seven consecutive overs of tightly controlled leg spin.

With a serious pace attack, comprising teenager Brandon Lord and skipper Lance, I found few willing openers and so faced the fire. Wickets tumbled regularly and we did well to get past 100.

Overall, a reasonable performance against a 'friendly' opposition that was really a County League 3rd XI. Many congratulations to a splendid performance from the Hawks. 1-1 the final result. Steve, maybe you can fix up a three-match series for 2019? I'm sure Hawks are up for the 'mash up'!
