Laois CC v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Mon 10 Jun 2013 at 6:00pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 77 Runs

Match report The 1sts made their annual trip to Laois on Monday for their 1/4 final clash in the Tillain Cup. Ozenbrook won the toss and opted to bat. A good start for Laois then as these were excellent batting conditions and it meant NK would have to bat in the gloomier conditions later on (it was a dull and very cold evening). The 1sts however produced some good cricket to reduce the home side to 106-6 and then 124-7 at one stage and gave themselves an opportunity to roll the oppo over for a below average total. However that man Meraj had other ideas yet again. The 1sts seem to like giving Meraj extra lives. He was dropped crucially early on when Laois were struggling and a run out chance was missed a little later on. With some help from the no.8 Cosby, Meraj helped his side to the above average total of 185, making almost half that total by himself. Pick of the bowlers for NK was Imran Muhammed who opened up with 5 excellent overs taking 2/25. The other bowlers bowled some good stuff in patches but struggled to contain Meraj.

In reply the 1sts never really threatened their target despite a cracking 61* from Vorster. Before a ball was even bowled in the 2nd innings NK had some problems. Neavyn had to hand over the gloves half-way through the 1st innings after a nasty blow on the thumb and also couldn't hold his bat properly and so went from opener to no.9 and worse still, Daire O'Neill couldn't bat at all after he also sustained an injury in the 1st innings. Vorster showed the way but unfortunately nobody was willing to follow as Kildare lost wickets regularly and eventually were bundled out well short of their target.

So not a night to remember for NK for numerous reasons. NK didn't have a great deal of good luck but the better side on the night won this one and best of luck to them in the 1/2 finals.
