County Cubs beat Midleton by 5 wickets in Munster U14 League

On a very damp day in Midleton, Cork County U14’s recorded their first league success of the league in their last league fixture of 2016.

Winning captain M. Salam won the toss and choose to bowl first on a misty afternoon and that decision looked to be a very good choice with H. Safi running out the Midleton’s opener with a direct hit from midwicket off the first ball.

Another wicket followed in the third over, however from there Midleton built runs with a superb 29 (retired n.o.) from L. O’Reilly, with supporting scores from I. Sharif (22) and J. Bryan (20). This helped Midleton to a score of 117 a.o. after 19.1 overs.

Best of the County bowlers were H. Safi (3.1-0-3-17) E. O’Sullivan (4-0-2-18), D. Kennedy (3-0-1-14), M. Salam (2-0-1-18) and R. O’Sullivan (3-0-1-26). It should also be noted that A Hussain had a great run out with a direct hit from long stop.

In reply County chased down the target of 118 in 17.1 overs for the loss of 5 wickets. Best of the batsmen were Z. Pirzada 26 (retired n.o.), E. O’Sullivan (21 n.o.), A McAllen (17 n.o.) and H. Safi (13). For Midleton I. Sharif (3-0-1-19), H. Edgerton (3-0-1-26) and L. O’Reilly (4-0-1-26) were the best of the bowlers.

Well done to all.
