Merrion 2 v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Fri 03 Aug 2018 at 18.00
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 9 Wickets (0/25pts)

Match report A NK X travelled to Merrion on a hot and humid Friday evening for a league refix, still looking for that first win of the season. Dalton was delighted to win the toss and of course opted to bat first. Manny Singh and Neavyn would open up. The pair took the score to 34 by the 5th over before Manny holed out to give the oppo their breakthrough. Dalton joined Neavyn at the crease and together looked to be putting NK in a strong position to push on for a decent total, having taken the score on to 72 by the 10th over. Dalton however fell attempting a somewhat audacious reverse paddle and, despite the best efforts of Neavyn, the NK run rate slowed dramatically from this point on. The 1sts went from being 72-1 off 10 overs to a final, well below par total of 118 off their 20 overs.

Down a man in the field and with a low score to defend the 1sts were always going to be up against it in the 2nd half. Merrion's opening pair, under no real pressure, were able to ease themselves in and then just pick their moments thereafter. NK needed some early wickets to stand any chance but they were not forthcoming and ultimately Merrion cantered to a 9 wicket win.

The 1sts return to 50 over league cricket on Sunday when they visit Leinster, where they'll be hoping to be invovled in a much tighter game.
