Bagenalstown v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Sun 01 Jul 2012 at 1.00
North Kildare Cricket Club Won By 41 Runs

Match report Captains agreed to reduce the game to 35 overs per innings to increase the chances of getting the game completed with a bit of dodgy weather expected.

Bags'town won the toss and put Kildare in to bat. Not surprising given the errr, verdant look to the pitch. Neavyn and Ul-Haq showed that the pitch wasn't impossible to bat on however by any means as they led the way with scores of 57 and 39 respectively. Guy Donald and Ehsan Dar batted well towards the end of the innings as the 1sts finished on 172-6 off their 35 overs. A pretty decent total given the challenges of the pitch and slowness of the outfield.

Bags'town made a decent fist of the chase but never really looked like they were going to get home as wickets fell often enough to keep NK in control of the situation. Wasif Ali and Daire O'Neill opened up with good spells and stopped the oppo getting off to the quick start they were probably hoping for. Dar and Neavyn were the pick of the bowlers for Kildare with 4 and 3 wickets respectively and Ul-Haq bowled a very economical spell conceding just 12 runs in his 7 overs.

So a comfortable win for NK that at least sees them put some green on the results board after a disappointing stretch of red. The 1sts midland adventure will continue.
