North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Adamstown 1 on Tue 14 May 2013 at 6:00 pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost by 30 runs

Match report The seconds looked to grab their first win of the season against Adamstown, but just came up short in an exciting match that may have swung either way.

Skipper Vossie, lost the all-important toss (again) and oppo skipper elected to bat.. No surprises there! The importance of losing the toss started to show after three overs, when Adamstown opener and ex NK man, Paul O'Boyle took the attack to the NK bowlers. O'Boyle went on to make a quick-fire 66 with some well-timed shots all around the ground. However, at a certain stage, Adamstown looked like they were settled to make a mammoth total. This wasn't to be. North Kildare took a firm grip of the game and restricted Adamstown to a modest total of 126, with excellent ground-fielding, tight spells of bowling (particularly from our new guys, Gulab Singh and Sandy Chalal) and most importantly; from holding on to our catches.

Things started brightly for North Kildare as the score stood on 27 for no-loss after five overs. Unfortunately - nobody really applied themselves as NK lost wickets at regular intervals as well as in clusters. There was a bright light in the innings as debutant, Gulab Singh brought the game into touching distance after a powerful innings of 40. Singh was then out to a brilliant catch which swung the game in favour of Adamstown. With the loss of Singh, it was always going to be an uphill battle. NK were soon bowled out for 96, a modest total yes; bearing in mind most of the NK players were batting in darkness..

So, disappointment as NK are out of our first cup competition of the season, but with plenty of positives to build on (particularly in the field) against Phoenix on Saturday. A big welcome to Gulab and Sandy who look like excellent cricketers and even better guys.
