County cruise to Munster Senior Cup Final victory

Saturday, September 5th, 2015

Cork County swept County Kerry aside to clinch the 2015 Munster Senior Cup in the refixed match at the Mardyke. The victory is their 4th Senior Cup in the last six years and helped make up for their unfortunate elimination in last season’s competition.

Bowling first the Leesiders were soon on top with openers Andy Wootton (5-20) and Junaid Amin (2-16) turning the screw on the Kerry top order who were soon on 21-5.

Wicket keeper Uddin was the only Kerryman to make it into double figures as the rest of the batting order failed to establish any partnerships and were eventually bowled out for just 60.

In response, Kerry made early inroads by taking the wickets of openers Russell and Durity but Hassett (31*) and Grobler (16*) steadied the ship and saw Cork County home with 8 wickets to spare.

Munster Senior Cup Final:

County Kerry 60 all out (Wootton 5-20, Amin 2-16, Cawley 2-18) lost to Cork County 63-2 (Hassett 31*) by 8 wickets at the Mardyke. scorecard

Senior Cup Final abandoned due to inclement weather

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

The 2015 Senior Cup Final was abandoned on Sunday, 2nd August, due to torrential rain with Cork County on 74-2 chasing County Kerry’s modest target of 118 to win.

With the anticipated poor weather not arriving before the start of play, Cork County did not hesitate to put County Kerry into bat after winning the toss. Having bowled out the side from The Kingdom to a merger total of 117, Cork County set about the chase in a controlled fashion before the rains came in with the Cork men on 74-2 and on course to chase down the required total with ease.

A date for the refix will be announced in due course.
