27th of April: Second XI vs North Kildare (Away)
2nds under new Skipper Eoin Sheehan opened their league campaign (and Eoin's term as Skipper) with a comfortable 50 run victory over North Kildare on Sun. Batting first early wickets fell cheaply and at 46 for 6 it was beginning to look like an early finish . Resolute batting from Patrick Monks and Dean Brogan held the innings together and impetus from the middle order batsmen namely Sean McCann (30) Usman Sheikh (17) and Stephen Bisset (15) brought the total along nicely as the team reached a respectable 130 in 35 overs . The early conclusion to the innings meant that NK required to bat for 7 overs before tea . Chaiyo Burke and Sean McCann took full advantage of the spell and the opposition found themselves 15 for 3 at the interval. Immediately after the break they tumbled to a precarious 24 for 7 as Chaiyo in particular bowled beautifully . He was ably assisted by Dylan Bell , Stephen Bisset and Sarfraz Ahmed . NK batsmen G.Horn and A.Singh dug deep to bring their total up to a modest 80. Chaiyo's bowling figures of 5 for 12 were highly impressive as he showed his potential to be an outstanding bowler in the near future. Overall this was a fine bowling display and augurs well for coming matches. The team look forward to their next home encounter v Phoenix on Sun 4th May.
