North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Rush 2 on Sun 27 Apr 2014 at 13.30pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost by 50 runs (3/25 points)

Match report Tough start for the seconds in their opening fixture of the season.

Things started well with new skipper Sean Dalton winning the toss and opting to field. North Kildare's strong bowling attack struck early and often and, after fifteen overs, Rush were struggling at 30 for 5. When Barra Mac Niocaill took a very sharp caught & bowled chance to leave Rush 46-6 things looked good for the home side. Rush's lower order, however, had different plans with veterans McCann and Bissett reconstructing the innings before Sheikh and Bell added 34 for the final wicket.

The seconds chase could not have started in worse fashion. While Barra batted away patiently at one end a combination of good bowling and early-season shots left North Kildare 15-3 when tea was taken after 7 overs. Things didn't get any better after the break and by the twelfth over NK were rocking at 24-7. A mix of aggression and patiance from Amarbhir Singh saw Kildare mount a counter-attack, putting on 39 for the next wicket before Amar was caught in the deep. The last two partnerships added another twenty runs but by then the damage was done. A much better effort with the bat needed next week if the seconds are to overcome Castleknock.
