HHCC makes history

Hottentots Holland Cricket Club’s (HHCC) first team has been promoted to the Western Province Cricket Association’s 1A League following a historic victory at the weekend.

The team hosted Bishop Lavis CC in a First Division B encounter at the Navy Sports Grounds in Gordon’s Bay, knowing that a win would guarantee them promotion.

The visitors won the toss and asked the hosts to take first strike. In an early setback, HHCC lost two early wickets which left them struggling at 10/2.

Ridah Rhoda and Edwin Daniels patiently kept the runs ticking for the home side. But Daniels lost his wicket, which brought Rasool Thomas to the crease. He played a good cameo before eventually falling for 27 runs.

Rhoda was then joined at the crease by fellow stalwart Abdul-Aziz Temoor. The pair dragged HHCC away from a low-scoring total as they played the Bishop Lavis bowlers with relative ease.

Temoor was the chief destroyer as he managed a magnificent 89 off just 54 balls. He was well supported by Rhoda, who played a patient knock of 66 as he anchored the innings.

HHCC eventually ended their innings on 256/8 after 50 overs.

With ball in-hand, captain Wahid Martin grabbed three wickets in one over to set the tone.

Gasant Moller, Riyaad Oliver and Salmaan Ajam (all two wickets) wrapped up the innings as Bishop Lavis only managed 56 (all-out) and HHCC recorded an ecstatic win to gain promotion to the top league.

The HHCC second team hosted Seacrest CC at Abattoir Sports Grounds in Strand. The visitors batted first and managed a defendable total of 220 in 45 overs.

The hosts started well and were on course for a win on 176/6 after 29 overs before bad light stopped play and brought a halt to the outing. Fuad Behardien (30*) was the top scorer.

This coming weekend the HHCC first team is expected to lock horns with fellow promoted team Pinelands CC, while the seconds host Tygerberg CC at the Navy Sports Ground.
