North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Rush 2 on Wed 26 May 2010 at 6pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost by 1 runs

Match report Having batted first and scored 89 in a T20 the dressing room as you would imagine was a bit quiet at the break. The prevailing thoughts are of a thrashing, being a little embarrassed and home early not deserving a pint!

But one tries to stay positive, advise the lads it’s a funny old game, work hard and you just never know (obviously nobody believes this for a minute, we got 89 on a road!).

Fast forward an hour and ten minutes, and the heart is racing as wonder of wonders the oppo require 12 from the LAST over with 2 wickets in hand.

1st Ball...Run Out
12 from 5...surley we are home and on the verge of one the most remarkable come backs in NK history ever...

2nd Ball...low full toss on leg stump, reverse scoop over fine leg 6!! (Bollox)
6 from 4...”Up in the block hole now Dutchy lad"... just two dots and they'll panic for sure.

Third Ball...Another full toss pulled to backward square for 4!!
(”No, No, No...all that hard work, all that keeping the lads calm as we chipped away, never letting them get caught up in the moment, just keeping them focused on playing it ball by ball, nobody getting ahead of ourselves, just calmly keeping it tight and chipping away..Bollox !)

4th Ball
2 from 3...DOT
"Ohhh just maybe there is a God, just maybe...please please if there is please BE ON OUR SIDE"

5th Ball
2 from 2...required
Pushed in air towards mid’s upish..."CATCH IT"..Oh JOY JOY JOY...
NO its three feet wide of him. Bugger...there IS NO GOD !!
