A chill wind and damp start compound Chigs disappointment at Ally Pally

Chigs day out at Alexandra Park v Pacific was a disappointing affair for the visitors.  We had a delayed start due to rainy conditions and we lost the toss. Were duly inserted.   I fell early (chopping on) and the rot had sadly started there...  We lost wickets regularly with no one digging in and making an innings of any note other than another decent innings from Boom Boom Hannant (a quickfire 38 or thereabouts?) to continue his good season with the bat so far.  Chigwell all out for 124 so not even a batting point. Serious under-achievement from the Chigs batting unit :'(

After an okay tea (French Fancy-gate) we went out to bowl knowing we needed desperately to hang on to any chance that came our way. Mark bowled extremely well to the Aussie overseas but to no avail as a difficult early chance gloved behind ultimately didn't stick. Another gloved chance later on went down too but by that time it was already probably too late. Robbie O grabbed a couple of late wickets and Tom nabbed one also, meaning that at least we didn't end up pointless... scant consolation in a very disappointed dressing room.   Onwards and upwards, Chaps!  R.x
