Balbriggan 1
Balbriggan won by 4 wkts
Lorcan Tucker excepting, Dublin University were disappointing in their season opener against Malahide last week, and will be desperate to bounce straight back. That may not be so easy though, with Balbriggan having won both of the previous two encounters by decent margins. History is not really on Trinity's side - the last 1st team they beat was Phoenix 1 back in May 2014, and they may be up against it today against a Balbriggan team with a few star performers. John Mooney didn't have the best of seasons in 2015 with the bat, but with the ball he was unstoppable, taking 21 wickets at 13.67. Not surprisingly Muhammad Farrukh has been head and shoulders above the rest of the Balbriggan team, with 1221 Senior runs at 48.84 since his debut in 2014. Against that is Matt Petrie's incredible 134 wickets at 11.24 and Lorcan Tucker's 1213 runs at 32.78.

Match Report

Balbriggan bring it home by four wickets. Comfortable enough in the end but DU fought hard and were competitive for the second week in a row. But their batting is likely to prove their Achilles heel all season. An important win for Balbriggan in the context of the league - the double points against Trinity are vital.

Time Type Content
13:51 DU in trouble as batting fails again - and this time Tucker is still around to push for a good score. 52/4 off 18 with the wickets shared by Balbriggan bowlers
15:10 Isobel Joyce leads the fight back for DU with 30*. DU still in trouble at 116/6 but can they get a big enough total for Matt Petrie who can run through any side
16:07 Despite 31 from Isobel Joyce the students struggled to 125 ao in 43 overs. It will require an inspired spell from Matt Petrie for this to be enough
17:20 A rare failure for Muhammed Farrukh who is out to Petrie. But at 79/3 and only needed another 46 it is definitely Balbriggan's to lose.
17:37 is an upset possible. Balbriggan lose two more wickets including that of John Mooney. Still need 36 with five wickets remaining.
17:49 @colm841: #cricketleinster #13566
17:55 Another wicket but only 27 needed. Petrie is bowled out and Dockrell [3/12] has three to go. Who will take the remaining four wickets for a surprise win.
18:16 Balbriggan bring it home by four wickets. Comfortable enough in the end but DU fought hard and were competitive for the second week in a row. But their batting is likely to prove their Achilles heel all season.
