Match report Y.M.C.A. 1st XI v Eglinton C.C. 1st XI
Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup 1st Rd
Sunday 10th May 2008
at Claremont Road, Sandymount.

Eglinton, the visitors elected to bat and got off to a flyer as Adam Rice and Warwick Armstrong found it difficult to control the white ball. The former never sorted it out but Armstrong did in his fourth over when whipped out two batmen (finishing with 2-29 off 7overs). The pitch had variable bounce, and some rats, one of which saw Rob Nandi grab the first of his three in his first four overs (3-17 off 7 overs). Etesham Ahmed bowled threateningly and with control for his 3-28 off 7 overs, as the Eglintonians found ways to get out. By the ninth over they were 39 for 2 and a bit of cautious batting saw something of a recovery. Pravajan Mullick was eventually caught by Rob Nandi low down and falling forward at square leg, for a careful 31 — 81 – 4. Thereafter the batsmen found ways to get out with a variety of skiers and subsided for 130 in the 38th over. (Extras with 31 contributed the highest score.)

Alan Lewis opened the innings and showed all his old ability to read a game as he missed few opportunities to score — he had prepared by making a few for the for the seconds in Middle B the previous weekend. Extras got off to a flyer with a boundary wide and four byes in the first over. Carl Hosford kept Lewis company until the job was about half done at 59 for two. After that, it was possible to be watchful and wait for the bad ball. Ben Dunk, showed an array of lovely clean off-drives in some powerful hitting (and one unmerciful cow-shot off Bobby Rao); he was also very severe on anything wide of his off-stump. Rao eventually did for Lewis (39) caught at mid-on attempting to hit over the top, but at 109 for three it was all too late. Dunk saw YM home with 48 off 32 balls. Mullick was perhaps the pick of the bowlers with one for 23 off his 7 overs, with Johnny Gardner next (1-15 off 5. Bobby Rao twirled away giving the batsmen plenty to think about for his 1 for 27 off 5. (Extras at 25 could only come third.)
