Clontraf 5 v Malahide Cricket Club Mens 4th XI on Sun 21 Jul 2019 at 1pm
Match was Abandoned due to weather

Match report The Great Escape
Or better still Miracle on Castle Avenue as the heavens opened and saved the 4ths from certain defeat. 81 for 9 off 21 with 19 overs remaining when the rains came and the match was Abandoned as a No Result. After 16 we were 58 for 9 in reply to 188/9 in 40 overs by Clontarf 5ths. Enter number 10 batter Matthew Langan age 13 and number 11 Daniel Read age 17. Neither were daunted and scored skillfully and freely at near run a ball. They put on 23 undefeated runs for the last wicket and saved the day. Earlier our oldest rivals notched up a strong score of 188 on a placid grass wicket and slow outfield. Read was the pick of the bowlers, opening up and bowling through, 8 overs 2 maidens 1 for 23. Good support from Eoghan Keohane 2/36, Liam Lydon 2/37, Roy Subhadip 2/15, Karthik 1/37 and 8 overs of off spin from Adam Doyle 1/33.

After a typical sumptuous Clontarf tea* we never got going against unthreatening bowling. That is until Langan and Read put their hands up.

Clontarf 5th won the toss and batted.
The match is refixed for Saturday 7 September in Malahide. Castle Avenue is out of commission from 12 August due to works on their square.
