YMCA 2 v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Sun 01 Aug 2010 at 13:00
Match was Drawn Rain Affected (10/20pts)

Match report On Sunday the 1sts had to settle for a share of the spoils in YMCA when some heavy rain late on in the day brought a premature end to proceedings. YM captain Streek won the toss and elected to bat first on what was to prove to be a bowlers wicket. It was to be a one man show from Streek (100) which enabled YM to get to a very competitive total of 214. The next highest contribution with the bat came from oppo no.10 Armstrong (17). Streek could of fell early on when he popped up a slower ball from Vorster only for it to land just short of mid-off and he was dropped early on at point again off the bowling of Vorster. Obviously NK were left to rue these missed opportunities when Streek went on to make a century. Vorster (10-0-27-1), Wasif Ali (10-1-34-2), Pyne (10-0-32-0) and Manjeet Singh (10-0-44-2) all bowled extremely well with Pyne very unfortunate not to pick up a least one wicket. Satchwell (9-0-70-2) had an off day with the ball, struggling to control his line, but he did produce an excellent over which saw him dismiss both the oppo no.3 and 4 in the space of 4 balls. Undoubtedly this was a missed opportunity for the 1sts to bowl the oppo out for a low total. Kishan Mistri produced an excellent performance behind the stumps and had a hand in no less than 5 oppo dismissals with 3 catches, a direct hit run out and another run out after combining with Manjeet Singh.

In reply NK got off to an excellent start with 11 runs coming in the 1st over. However Neavyn (7) missed a staight one that swung a little from seamer Jehangir in the 2nd over to leave the score on 13-1. Walshe and Manjeet Singh then put together an excellent stand of 71, with both solid in defence and punishing the numerous loose deliveries dished up to them. After 20 overs NK were in a strong position from which to go on and win the game with the scoreboard reading 84-1 and oppo heads seeming to be down. After 21 overs NK were in a somewhat weaker position to go on and win the game with the scoreboard now reading 85-4. Oppo seamer Wilson-Moore produced a triple wicket maiden, first trapping Walshe (33) lbw, then removing Satchwell bowled first ball and finally trapping Mistri lbw last ball of the over. Consecutive blob no.3 followed in the next over when Wasif Ali sliced seamer Ahmed straight to backward point. 85-5. In the space of ten balls the 1sts had lost 4 wickets for 1 run.

Manjeet Singh (32*) was still there with some capable batsmen still to come so it was by no means a lost cause, however, winning from this position would certainly have proven to have been a difficult task. Therefore when the heavy rain arrived NK were not too displeased. After the rain finally passed the square was very damp and the day wasn't getting any younger and so the match was abandoned.

Had the 1sts had one more bowler in their ranks (regular opener Varun Walia was missing for this one) and had they been a little sharper in the field they may well have won this one at a canter.
