Terence Moynihan maiden Exiles 50 interview

Terry very well played on reaching your maiden Exiles fifty – you must be really pleased?

Yes thanks very much. I am really pleased to get my maiden fifty for the club. Its my third season for exiles and in the past two seasons I feel that I hadn’t really clicked into gear with the bat but its steadily improving and I’m quite happy with my performances so far this season.

At what stage did you feel the landmark might be on?

Once I got to about 35 I felt in really good nick and i thought to myself not to panic because the pitch was great to bat on and the opposition were offering a few balls an over to play a more expansive shot so I was quite confident that I would reach the fifty this time around.

What was your favourite shot?

My favourite shot had to be the six I hit to reach the fifty. I knew I was in the forties but not too sure where in the forties but once it went over the boundary the guys let me know.

There must be some frustration you got out the way you did and also that the side couldn’t quite get the win?

Yes i was slightly frustrated but the right call was made for the run and I kept on running and the mistake was mine not to stay in the crease. The game was so close in the end and its disappointing that we didn’t get the win but the guys put up a really good fight in the end to try and get over the line, the two players being Andy and George.

Have you scored many fifties in your cricketing career to date?

This is my second fifty of my cricketing career.

You’re more known to the Exiles as a bowler – do you consider yourself a genuine all-rounder?

I don’t really consider myself as an all rounder but as I’ve said I’m steadily improving with the bat and hope at some stage to be an all rounder.

What are your next cricketing targets?

One of my targets in the beginning of the season was to score 150 runs or over for the season and I’m close to doing that at the moment so the next targets would be to take 20 wickets for the season and to score another fifty in the remaining matches.

Terry very well played and here’s to many more Exiles fifties from you!
