North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI v Sligo on Sat 24 Apr 2010 at 13:30
North Kildare Cricket Club Won By 148 Runs

Match report NK 1sts/2nds v Sligo (40 overs)

Captain Neavyn lost the toss and a Johnny Walshe led Sligo opted to field first. Openers Neavyn and Imran Ul-Haq got NK off to a flyer in a stand of 49 off the first 6 overs before an unfortunate slip from Imran led to the run out of Neavyn (22 off 22). A bitterly disappointed Phipps followed soon after bowled for a blob. Debutant Kishan Mistri and Imran put together an excellent partnership of 113 before Imran retired after 20 overs. I suspect the Sligo lads were pleased to see the back of Imran. His 109 runs came off just 66 balls and included 15x4s and 3x6s. Mistri was next to go after a well made 38 off 36 balls. This was the first time Kishan held a bat in his hands in 10 years (apparently) so all things considered a fine effort from the Team Physio. NK went on to rack up a final total of 305. Notable contributions came from Vishu Shokeenda (46 off 33 retired), Nidge Pyne (21 off 27 retired), Varun Walia (18 off 9) and a big a six down the ground from Raj Yadav (16 off 9) deserves a mention.

In reply Sligo were never up with the RRR and finally succumbed all out for 157. Wasif Ali (7-2-14-3) and Imran Ul-Haq (6-1-30-4) were the pick of the bowlers. Phipps, Varun and Rob Beattie all picked up a wicket apiece. A fine fielding display from Rob Beattie, with an excellent stop at point and a fine high catch in the covers, merits a mention.

A useful days work.
