North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Merrion 4 on Sun 30 May 2010 at
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 6 Wickets

Match report After winning the toss and electing to bat, NK made a steady start pushing to 69 for 2 after losing Sean Dalton for 10 and Barra for 13. Gareth Holland was looking good and we looked set fair for a decent score. 8 overs later we had collapsed to 89 for 8 after giving Merrion a fine catching session. Dutchy was unlucky to be caught after a decent 42, finding the tallest fielder with the longest arms - no-one else would have got close.

Some creditable resistance by Cameron 19 and a decent looking 13 not out by Rohan put us upto 123 all out. It was never going to be enough.

Our bad feelings were put into sharp context when one of our opponents had the appalling news on his mobile of the death of his twin brother. You can imagine the results of that. Clearly our sympathies go with him - that's never easy news and especially not via a mobile message.

We had an extended tea to decide what Merrion wanted to do. They decided to play on and proceeded to hit hard and often. We never had control with too many "4-balls". McCreivy, Hansell, Beattie & Futter all took a wicket apiece but the truth is we were never in it.

We won't win with batting like that and a "4-ball" per over. It's that simple.
