Back to 2009 fixtures  

Chats Palace v Old Ranwellians

Thursday 23 July 2009, Victoria Park
Chats Palace won by 4 runs

Chats Palace lost the toss and were put into bat

Chats Palace: 122 for 5 in 16 overs
Rory Byrne 35
Sam Hickey 33

Old Ranwellians: 118 for 3 in 16 overs

Having been put into bat, Chats Palace struggled to assert any authority with the bat against skillful and dogged bowling.

Opener Rory Byrne started strongly before fading; but Chats Palace' innings was rescued by Sam Hickey hitting four fours, one six and a two; 24 in one over, establishing a renewed impetus that saw them through to a total that could be defended.

In at times atrocious conditions and ultimately in fading light, Old Ranwellians remained in touch with the target.

An amazing piece of fielding by Rory Byrne, leading to a direct throw run out, checked the reply to a degree, but a large number of wides - allied to dogged and lusty batting meant that the last over left them requiring just seven runs.

However, a brilliant skillful over containing a wicket, from Nomaan restricted Old Ranwellians to just one run.
