Round 1 summary
Cuscatlan Chiefs 115 for 4 beat Atlacatl Knights 40 by 75 runs
Some sharp early bowling by Cullen and Carpio saw Chiefs in trouble. They quickly recovered though with useful innings by Reyes, McHugh and Murgatroyd to reach a healthy total of 115. The Knights never looked like they would seriously challenge as A. Portillo claimed two victims in the first over.
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
