North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Dundrum on Mon 02 May 2016 at 1.00pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Won

Match report It was first game of the season for the seconds and playing conditions were quiet decent
despite weather being strange and wet for last few days and overnight rain. all players came kind of on time! Dundrum won the toss and decide to bat.Clint and Ajay opened the bowling and started the bowling with decent line and length and good control , ajay got the first wicket and 2nd was runout from matthew, after good opening spell from clint and ajay , matthew and gulab came and started continued in the same way bowling good line and length and after that manjinder singh on his debut for club and sandy finished the innings with good bowling . there were good few catches were dropped but it was really hard to catch with wind blowing in the speed of 100 miles i guess !!!
Over all it was good bowling performance from all the bowlers, manjinder singh was pick of the bowlers with his tight spin bowling on his debut and sandy picking up 3 wickets. Dundrum got 220 in the end with bhardwaj scoring 71 for them.
It was 20-30 runs more what kildare would have liked to chase but knew that we can chase this score with kind of batting line up we got .
there were few eyebrows were raised when Gulab came out to open with Behjad given he has mostly batted number 10 or 11 in last 3 years.
Openers started decently and punishing any bad balls and giving respect to good deliveries . behzad was playing with good strike rate and hitting a boundary nearly every over, first wicket fell at 74 with behzad scoring a brilliant 49 in a good opening stand. Ajay was promoted at number 3 because he was getting late from his job and it turn out to be a good move as he scored 46 at decent strike rate and making it good patnership of 80 runs with gulab. Gulab reached his first fifty for the club and was still on the crease holding one end. walshe came in after ajay and gone back on the same score without troubling the scorers. sean came in at 5 and with kildare need another 65 runs to win 16 overs. they another decent patnership on 31 runs and Gulab singh got out at well made 78 , sandy came out at number 6 and both sean and sandy finished the game with sandy hitting the winning runs in 40th over, sean batted well for 23 not out and sandy at 13 not out with trying to finish the innings with a six! but not successding!!
Over all it was good team performance with still room to improve and good start to the season with a win.
