North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Malahide 4 on Sun 22 May 2011 at 1.30
North Kildare Cricket Club Won by 57 Runs

Match report A strong North Kildare 2nd Eleven turned up to play Malahide 4ths in Kilcock on Sunday. North Kildare won the toss and decided to bat. Contrasting innings from openers, Rob Neavyn & Gareth Gilmour meant that when Gareth was given out LBW in the 10 over with the total on 26, his contribution was 20. Rob followed him back to the dressing rooms shortly afterwards, misjudging the length and having his stumps knocked back.

Gary Singh & Zak Khan - both returning to the North Kildare fold after a few years in the wilderness - set about rebuilding by going on the attack. Gary was particularly harsh on any pies that came his direction, reaching his 50 off 33 balls. However, having made 53, he was oddly sent back to the pavilion when a half-hearted appeal was upheld by the umpire.

Wickets started to fall regularly for the next 15 overs while the runs dried up, and Kildare found themselves 9 down for 151 with 6 overs remaining. Stick or twist - have a go or try to bat the overs? A combination of both from Paul McGreivy & Gordie Clarke meant that Kildare made 186 for 9 off their 45 overs. Would this last wicket partnership prove to be vital? The answer - yes.

Tight bowling from Max Small (8-1-18-2) & Paul McGreivy (8-4-16-0) backed up by sharp fielding restricted Malahide early on. Nigel Pyne (9-1-35-14) and another person returning from the wilderness - Paddy Wall (5-0-21-0) kept things fairly quiet before Shiv Sethi (9-2-22-2) & Cameron Futter (6-1-13-1) put a final squeeze on the Malahide batsmen, who eventually managed 129 for 9 off their 45 overs. Special mention should be made of 3 direct hit run outs from Gary, Gordie and Cameron - proof that Nigel's Thursday evening sessions pay off.

A good all round effort and hard to find someone that didn't contribute
