North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Castleknock 1 on Sat 03 May 2014 at 13.30pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 7 wickets (2/25 points)

Match report Castleknock travelled to The Maws to take on a North Kildare side still hurting from last weeks loss to Rush. Skipper Dalton won the toss again and chose to bat in a change from the week previous.

Ger and Andy opened up and got things off to a steady start. Ger rotated the strike well while Andy punished the bad balls well and the two brought the score to 60 in the 15th over before Ger was adjudged LBW for 13. Safdar was now at the crease and he began building on the foundations the openers set. Safdar made a quick 35 before swinging across a ball hitting middle stump. 117-2. Vossi came in and was into his stride straight away, driving both along the ground and in the air well. Vossi was run out for 64(47) but not before Andy was unluckily out caught off what seemed to be the back of his bat at point. Certainly not a dismissal you see every week. Gulab came and went for 2, and Jack also for 9. Tom came in for his maiden innings for North Kildare and after an edgy start, started to deposit the ball to all parts of the ground, mainly the trees. NK finished on 273-7 off their 45 with Tom 47*.

What happened next was disappointing to say the least. North Kildare simply weren't good enough in the field or with the ball and let Castleknocks openers to get off to a flying start. Former Nk opener Salman once again came back to haunt his former side as he finished 115*. Mention must go to Amarbir Singh who was the only bowler who regularly troubled their batsmen and deservedly picked up 3 wickets. Castleknock reached their target in the 39th over.
