Match report Y.M.C.A. 2nd XI v North Kildare 2nd XI
Leinster Middle B League
Saturday 9th August 2008
at Claremont Road

Due to a week of rain which hampered the preparation of a grass wicket both sides agreed to make use of the artifical wicket.

YM were asked to field first in what turned out to be a very fustrating day.
Tight bowling at the start of the innings saw the visitors opening batsmen struggle to come to terms with the pace of the YM opening bowlers. Extras helping the score to 14 before Stuart McCready was introduced to the attack. Bowling a beautiful line and length with no little pace he reeled off 10 overs to produce the excellent figures of 10-4-13-5.
Just after the drinks break at 22 overs the North Kildare stood at 67/5.
When Neavyn who had anchored the innings with a very patient 34 was dismissed the visitors tail was mopped up by Neel Bhandari 3/16 and Kamal Merchant 2/5. Their innings closed on 105/10 just as the rain came down.
Eight catches were held in the field in what was a pretty good performance by YM. James 'Jammer' Short kept very well again picking up 2 cts & 1 stumping.

Tea was taken and while cups of tea, sandwiches, buns and scones were enjoyed the rain just got heavier and heavier....
YM did not get the chance to bat and the game was abandoned.
