YMCA 2 v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Sun 17 Jun 2018 at 13.00
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 8 Wickets (1/25pts)

Match report The firsts travelled to Sandymount looking for their first win of the season against one of the strongest sides in Division 3. Captain Dalton won the toss and had no hesitation in opting to have a bat first, despite the wicket looking possibly a little hairy. The wicket played reasonably well but this was no help to NK as they were bundled out for a meagre total of just 89. With none of NKs top 5 making a double figure score, a decent, defendable total was always unlikely.

In reply YM knocked off the required runs with little fuss. Manny Singh and debutant Maruthi opened the bowling for the Kildare men. Manny could have had an early breakthrough for his side but for a dropped caught & bowled chance. At the other end Maruthi bowled it in some decent areas and was very unlucky not to pick up his first NK wicket when a stumping appeal was incorrectly turned down. Gulab Singh (doing well to hold on to a skyer off his own bowling) and O'Neill did manage to pick up a wicket each which meant the firsts at least didn't leave D4 completely empty-handed. The solitary point gained from those two wickets was of course scant consolation on a day which saw the firsts soundly beaten once again.

Next week the firsts return to Wallace Cup action. Perhaps the team can rediscover that winning feeling in this competition. After a short break the team will return to Division 3 action with 10 league games remaining for NK to try and turn things around. For that to happen though, a dramatic improvement in standards would need to occur.
