North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI v Y.M.C.A. 2 on Sat 02 Jul 2011 at 1.00
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 7 Wickets (1/25pts)

Match report A big defeat for a somewhat understrength 1st team. Captain Tom Satchwell was away so his vice Nigel Pyne took over the team for the day. Pyne won the toss and decided we'd have a bat first on what proved to be a pretty good batting track. With the exception of the in form Walshe (59) and Manjeet Singh (39) NK batted pretty poorly all told and were bundled out for a well below par looking total of 174. Kerrison (16*) and McGreivy (11*) batted well and at least ensured the 1sts batted out their 50 overs. Their unbeaten stand of 29 for the 10th wicket on another day may have proved instrumental on the final result, but not on this day.

The 1sts defence got off to an excellent start when Wasif Ali removed oppo opener Cole for a blob in the first over. It was to be a long time before NK could celebrate another wicket however as oppo skipper Streek (39) and oppo no.3 Partridge (110) put together a 2nd wicket stand of 125. McGreivy eventually removed Streek caught by Walshe at gully. Centurion Partridge continued to smash Kildare's bowlers to all parts however before he finally holed out to Neavyn in the deep off the bowling of Singh. Soon after arriving at the crease Partridge offered up a straighforward chance to mid-off only for it to be spilled. The 1sts would still have had to play well to win the game but had this catch been taken it may have been a different story. Young Dudley the Dog left nobody in any doubt as to what he thought of the script when, as YM neared victory, he scampered onto the pitch and parked his brown Cortina before returning to the clubhouse for a nap.

Next weekend offers the 1sts the chance to put this match behind them when they play host to Phoenix (league) on Saturday and Balahadreen (Midland Cup) on Sunday.
