Mulingar v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Sat 07 May 2011 at 12.30
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 6 Wickets (2/25pts)

Match report The first XI kicked off the season in Mullingar last Saturday (7th) against a team who had made a good start to the season with 2 wins from 2 played.

NK, missing a couple of key players, including Skipper Tom Satchwell, struggled in most if not all departments and in honesty looked like a team who had not yet blown away the winter cobwebs. Only Gareth "Dutchy" Holland (67) and Wasif Ali (48) looked in any kind of touch with the bat as this pair added a blistering 64 from 40 balls (approx) in a first innings total of 188 all out. Mani Singh 16, Ian Walshe and Nigel Pyne 14 each were the only other players to make double figures.

Mullingar, never looking in reality like a team with the class to have beaten all before them so far this season, knocked off the total in just 28.3 overs. Helped hugely by some wayward bowling and some rusty fielding they got there for the loss of only 4 wickets. Positives within the NK bowling though included the return of Max "a-million" Small (7-1-41), who looked sharp and bowled with good wheels at times. Wasif "Iron Man" Ali (7.3-1-44) came through the pain pain barrier following is innings to bowl well at times with nip and swing. Pyne (4-29-1) trundled.

So, in summary. Some - but not much - good and definitely more to come.
