Chats Palace were put into bat on an overcast evening - eventually
leading to steady light rain. Chats batted well against a decent bowling
attack, with Sam Hickey capitalizing on a rather fortunate LBW decision in
his favour to smite the ball around the ground.
Supported by a sprited innings from Rory Byrne, Chats posted one of their
all-time highest totals which was always likely to be defendable.
Junoon started well, but found it difficult to get the ball away. Their
resistance was countered by a brilliant catch from Chats Palace captain Gary
Horsman - for once fielding at extra cover instead of behind the timbers.
A strong and consistent opening bowling spell from Ned Woodman pegged Junoon
back, with Jonathan Holland then capitalizing with three cheap wickets in
just two overs.
