North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 4th XI v Greystones 4 on Sat 16 May 2015 at 13.00
North Kildare Cricket Club Won By 1 wicket

Match report A youthful Greystones 4ths team turned up to The Maws for a match that was played in good spirits and half decent weather! The opposition won the toss and elected to bat. Matthew Bond and Kamal Gambhir opened and Matthew bowled a tight line and should have been rewarded with something from his 5 overs. Lochie Lipson then came on and had their dangerous opener caught at Mid wicket to get us on the way. Excellent mid innings bowling from Amol and Shantanu (Visu) was rewarded with 3 wickets for Amol and 1 for Vasu. Then came on the cleaner AJ who once up and running had the lower middle order tied down and the pressure was rewarded with 3 wickets. Good tail end resistance left Greystones with a total of 123 for 8 off their 40.
After tea J Walshe and L Lipson opened and put on 24 for the first wicket. Lochy was batting well but fell tryig to pull a straight one. In came Hans fresh from his 70 the week before, he took it to the bowlers before being adjudged LBW for 14. J Walshe was going well at the other end but tried to knock a straight one over the bowlers head but was bowled for 30. Shahid went for 9 caught at point and North Kildare were in a little trouble. In came AJ and started to get a hold of some full tosses and the innings was back on track. At the other end Vasu was quietly getting on with his business. When AJ went for a good 37 NK only needed 10 more runs to win. A few more singles and a 4 from Kamal brought the scores level. Kamal was out next ball leaving Amol needing 1 to win with only 1 wicket left. After a few managed blocks a wide was bowled and NK won. Nobody wants to win on a wide but sometimes these happens. A good team performance and a lot learnt. A Big thank you for Melanie? who did the teas! Onwards and upwards 2 from 2!!!
