Played at Victoria Park, pitch 2
Report by Tim Castle

  - Victory at last in the second of two consecutive evening matches in the delayed restart of the season at Victoria Park.
 - Fine debut for Fred Campbell, flatmate of Ollie Gold, recruited at the last minute after we were short one player. Two wickets and handy in the field.
- Excellent catches taken by Anthony Banks and Jack Holmes. Wickets also for Holmes and Ilyas Mansha.
- Effective bowling from Banks, Holmes, Mansha and Campbell restricted Phoenix batsmen and left us with an achieveable target of 145.
- Former Fallopian Kafh Hasan behind the stumps for Phoenix, garrulous as ever.
- Dogged 45 from opener Jack Turner, after Phoenix bowlers proved faster and more accurate than hoped
 - Good knocks by Hamza Jamshaid and Gold, but we remained behind the run rate until the final few overs.
- Banks and Holmes were able to hit out as the Phoenix bowling tired.
- Holmes clobbered Phoenix's Angus Grant for 16 in the penultimate over, but was then run out in middle of the last over with four balls left and eight needed.
- Banks facing. A wide and a four meant just three were needed off the last three deliveries.
- Banks smashed a four from the next ball, securing the win with two balls to spare.
- Socially distanced joy among Fallopians, disappointment for Phoenix, who must have felt they had the game wrapped up after 13 overs when OF were trailing 50 behind the target with only three overs to go.
