IT CERTAINLY wasn't cricket in the London T20 match between City of Westminster and Hackney on Sunday.
Police were called to a punch-up between the two in the competition for borough Twenty20 teams.
The game was eventually abandoned officially as a 'no result'.
Police arrived to deal with a complaint made by a Hackney player, who alleged he had been 'hit in the back' by a Westminster fan on the boundary, which was followed by players on both sides squaring up to each other.
Hackney captain Mohamed Vasi Sheikh said: "Something was said by our player and was misunderstood by the Westminster supporter.
"He turned around and was then hit - and it went on from there."
London T20 spokesman David Babbage said: "This was anything but the spirit that was intended, and we will remove the two teams if anything likes this happens again."
* IT WASN'T the best of Sundays for City of Westminster in the London T20 Competition.
Before the game against Hackney, they were on the end of a comprehensive defeat to Barking & Dagenham in the first game.
The Eastenders rattled up 191 in their 20 overs. Westminster came up 101 runs shy in reply, with only Mubashir Khan hanging around long enough to score 35.
