North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 4th XI v Phoenix on Sun 17 Jul 2016 at 1.00pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Won By 114 Runs

Match report The mighty Fourths recorded their fifth straight win against Phoenix 6ths. The Skipper won the toss for the fifth game in succession (Dave Winter are you watching?) and chose to bat on the grass wicket which Matt had excellently prepared for our game, or maybe he did it with the firsts game the previous day in mind!!

A quick summary of the NK innings would be fours, sixes and some more fours. Raj hit 110 with 6 fours and EIGHT sixes and was supported well by Ankit 22 and the Shahid 63. Tarun 13* added some runs near the end to see NK reach 282 from our 40. A moment of comedy was provided when the skipper went in to bat with an over and a bit left. With 3 wickets in hand slogging was on the cards. The bowler bowled a decent Yorker and the skipper swung and nicked onto his pads. In sheer disbelief he looked up to see teammate Foysal with his finger up for LBW. The second week in a row Foysal has given his skipper out lbw. Needless to say he was on the end of some slagging at teas.

With a big total to defend NK still knew not to get complacent. Credit must be given to Phoenix who batted their 40 and reached a creditable 168. Rory Keenan shined with the ball and got himself 2 wickets. In total 8 bowlers were used and all bowled well.

The Fourths next game is next Saturday the 30th at home once again to Phoenix!
