North Kildare Cricket Club Won by 4 Wickets

Match report The mighty Fourths traveled to Balbriggan for a crucial top of the table clash in the league. Skipper Foysal lost the toss and was sent in to field. After a tight opening spell from Tarik and Conall, the fourths found themselves chasing leather for the best part of 2 hrs as the top order cashed in on a hard grass wicket and quick outfield. A strong finish to the innings meant Balbriggan finished on 261-7. Wickets for Tarik (2), Aalam (2), Venki (1), Vishal, (1), Kawser (1).

A solid start was required if the mighty Fourths were to chase this target and they got it from Vishal and Aalam who managed to get to 64-0 after 8 overs before Vishal got caught at cover (22). Aaron came in at 3 and as it looked like a partnership was going to form he was given lbw (4). Venki and Aalam managed to get to drinks with the score at 115-2 and Aalam looking in great form with his magnificent shots. Shortly after drinks, Venki got caught as he was trying to increase the run rate (29) and Tarun was also caught behind soon after (1). With the score at 144-4 in the 27th over it was looking a tough challenge but some great shot-making by Tarik (22), Kawser (12) and Aalam who had scored a well deserved 100 and was still batting brilliantly managed to get it to a situation where 44 was required of 4 overs. With the game in the balance Skipper Foysal stepped in and smashed 39 runs off 14 balls including 4 huge sixes and a four to finish of the game in the penultimate over which capped off an amazing run chase. Aalam who anchored the innings from the first over finished on 115*.

The mighty Fourths move on to another big game against Adamstown on Saturday the 27th of July.
