Cork County cruise to Munster Senior Cup Final victory
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 seasonís 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. With the Senior T20 title already in the bag and leading the way in Division 1, a Munster Senior treble is still on the cards for Cork County.
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.
