Castleknock 1 v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI on Sat 04 May 2013 at 13:30
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost by 163 runs

Match report Things started brightly for the seconds in their first ever trip to Porterstown Park to play Castleknock CC. Skipper Neil Vorster began with a great spell of bowling taking two wickets in his second over, trapping Shakeer LBW before knocking over Sohit's off stick. Shortly afterwards Darren Roux had Mirza caught behind and the seconds looked to be in a strong position. At the other end, ex-North Kildare man Mahammad Salman was in great touch. Batting with skill, intelligance and power he put together two big partnerships, the first with another NK alumnus, Rahul and the second with Nadeem, before reaching an unbeaten century. Despite the strong start NK's fielding wilted against the on-slaught and by tea the 2s were looking down the barrel of a second straight defeat.

Enter Shiv Sethi who was in no mood to go quietly. Twelve runs in eleven balls including a six saw NK race off to a good start before Shiv was hit twice by the ball and retired hurt. Lucy Small looked in good touch before becoming the first of four run-out victims. Shiv resumed for a quick-fire thirty but his efforts were in vain as support fell around him. Another week, another lesson for the seconds. Next up Adamstown in the YM Salver; let's hope we don't have a repeat of today's story.
