|May 9, 2002||vs 008||Won by four wickets|
We thought it was all over. Massive slogging from 008's Nakarha propelled their score to 151 and another dismal defeat was on the cards.
But under cover of darkness our own big-hitter Philip Barrass and his trusty side-kick Jim Thornhill stole the game from under the opposition's noses.
As the light faded our dynamic duo clubbed 008's bowling into submission, Barrass charging to a season's team high of 84 and Thornhill a career best of 32.
A brief flash of the bat from Frisby, out for a quick six and then...
With night-vision goggles attached, Andrew Wardle and Paul Marinko strode out at the close with little to do but keep their wickets and casually knock off the remainder.
