Merrion 5 v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI on Sun 03 Jul 2011 at 1.30
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 1 Wicket

Match report North Kildare posted a decent but slightly below par total of 201. Neavyn (48) and Sethi (59) put together a stand of over 100 before Sethi fell after a quickfire half century. Kerrison (24) and Cruise (13*) batted well in a 29 run stand for the final wicket to get the 2nds past the 200 mark.

An excellent opening spell from Paddy Wall (9-1-32-4) with help from McGreivy (9-1-28-1) and some poor running between the wickets meant Merrion were looking down and out on 46-6. However the oppo skipper, the patient Aramala (80), was still there and their no.8 Govind (20) was surprisingly useful as the pair put together a stand of 57 to get Merrion somewhat back in the game before Z. Khan (9-1-34-2) removed Govind. 103-7. Another 30 runs were added before Zak struck again removing the oppo no.9. 133-8. NK at this point may have been guilty of assuming the last two oppo batsmen would be genuine rabbits and while they were definitely not Bradmanesque they also certainly weren't clueless. A 9th wicket stand of 46 ensued between Aramala and oppo no.10 Soutar and it was game on. With 5 overs to go the oppo required 29 runs with 2 wickets remaining. Neavyn and O'Neill were the chosen 2 bowlers to try to secure victory. Neavyn went for 3 runs and then O'Neill went for 5 runs in his first over and also dismissed Aramala to make Kildare big favourites. 21 needed off 3 and 1 wicket left for the oppo. Neavyn goes for 5 runs and the penultimate over from O'Neill yields 7 runs for the oppo. 9 required off the last over to be bowled by Neavyn. Single, two, hack across the line for 4! 2 needed off 3 balls. Sh*t! All the fielders are brought in. Dot ball. 2 needed off 2. McGreivy suggests putting someone at cow. Neavyn says no. Hack across the line in the air straight to cow. Ball dribbles over boundary for 4! Oppo win. Whoops.
