Knockharley 1 v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Thu 08 Aug 2013 at 18:00
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 19 Runs

Match report On Thursday the 1sts travelled to Knockharley for the semi-final of the Wallace Cup. Both sides agreed to play the match as a 20/20 game to start at 6pm. For the winner a place in the final, to be played in NK, was the prize. As is becoming an annual occurence a different captain took the reins of the 1st team for the Midland Cup. That man was Gulab Singh and unfortunately Gulab lost an important toss and Knockharley got to bat first, always an advantage in evening 20/20s, especially ones in August! NK began brightly with two early wickets before oppo opener Bellew took control with some typically unorthodox but highly effective shots. Bellew (56) got his 50 and the oppo no.5 Rashid (41) biffed a few to help his side to an above par (given the conditions) score of 154. Significantly Rashid got a reprieve at one point when he was clearly run out by Neavyn. The umpire saw it differently however and Rashid went on to make another 20 or so rapid runs after this incident. The 1sts struggled with their bowling and fielding mainly due to the fact that it rained solidly for the majority of the innings rendering conditions tricky to say the least. Nonetheless 155 was not a target NK would be daunted by but they knew a good batting performance was needed.

Manny Singh and Vorster opened up and had a decent start with 17 runs coming in the first 3 overs. Things slowed up a bit then and by the 5th both were out with the score only on 23. 23-2 off 5 didn't look particularly great from a NK perspective. Neavyn and Walshe added a brisk 38 to get things back on track. Walshe rotated and Neavyn hit the boundaries before both fell in quick succession to good yorkers. Topping and Hussain took over the reins and batted NK in to an excellent position from which to go on and win the game with the score on 108-4 off 14. However as the light faded more and more so too did the 1sts ability to score any runs as the batsmen were clearly struggling to see the ball. In the gloom NK suffered an awful 15th and 16th over with just 5 runs scored and 2 wickets falling. NK battled on half blind regardless but were ultimately bundled out 20 runs shy of their target.
