Deacons man wins cricket for Aus

Deacons man wins cricket for Aus

More sport from the world of legal.

A Deacons senior associate, Murray Proctor, is playing in the 2009 Lawyers Cricket World Cup at Cambridge University. 

The New Lawyer has received an update on the game from the firm. 

“The mind games had started early at the Opening Ceremony on Sunday 26 July when Pakistan announced they had Wasim Akram playing for them. As it turned out however, that was just a rumour circulated by some to instil some pre-match jitters ... 

"Game 2 was held at Caius College Oval, on an uncovered, and therefore extremely sticky, wicket. Pakistan won the toss and had no hesitation in sending the Aussies into bat, expecting to run through them in the wet conditions ... 

"Some lusty hitting in the final 10 overs meant that Australia could take the total to 5-175 at the end of the allotted 35 overs. The runs were shared around the top 5, with most contributing 20 odd or 30 odd ... 

"The game was quickly turning the way of Pakistan ... In a make or break move, the Aussie skipper threw the ball to Deacons senior associate Murray Procter. Murray quickly took 2 wickets in his first over and the game was back in the balance. 

"What followed was 3 more wickets for Murray in his spell to bring the match back Australia’s way. Spin from the other end also proved to be the best form of attack ... Murray finished as man of the match with 5-14 of his 7 overs. Australia winning by 30 runs."
