Incogniti and Leinster in hard fought draw
Cricket was the resounding winner at Phoenix as Leprechauns and their visitors, Incogniti, played out a closely fought draw.
With players from both sides checking the best before date on their sun block the Leps batted making 194 :- Nial Delany 56, Richy Forrest 43 & Samuel Richie 33, S Bowry 3/33, B.Wakeford 2/20.
Despite slumping to 64/6 our visitors almost got home thanks to a well struck 66 by Bret Merrill (N.S.W & Clontarf), his switch to Incogniti based on a promise to get his "moyte" Shane Watson to turn out for the Leps during his upcoming visit!! (Fan agus feicimid). Bret was aided and abetted by Ben Wakeford 34*.
Incogniti needed 6 off Grahem Pasley's last over but could only manage 3. Earlier David Cookes 18.104.22.168 and Allen Smiths 22.214.171.124 had put the Leps in the driving seat.
Leinster watch out. Incogniti say they are coming back next season.....for a week!
