Runs aplenty for SW in league outings

Somerset West Cricket Club (SWCC) hosted Montrose CC in a First Division B match at Radloff Park on Saturday 23 November.

The visitors won the toss and chose to take first strike. From the start, SWCC bowled with discipline and in good areas to build plenty of pressure upfront.

Montrose struggled to string a partnership together as the hosts took wickets at regular intervals. The bowlers were once again backed up by an excellent fielding display, which restricted the visitors to a lowly 130 runs (all out).

The best bowlers for Somerset West were Steven Southey (10-2-17-2), Gouws Koen (10-3-20-2) and Christo Southey (6-1-19-2).

SWCC did not have the best start as they lost young gun Jan Rademan on the second ball of the innings. But youngster Liam Martin and Jan Punt then put in a valuable partnership that took the game away from the visitors.

Martin scored his first half century for SWCC and shortly after that Jan Punt scored his first half century for the first team. In the end, the hosts made light work of the chase, crossing the line in 24 overs to record a well deserved bonus-point win.

The pick of the batsmen were Punt (55*), Martin (53) and Steven Southey (16*).

The SWCC second team hosted Kuils River at Radloff Park’s B-field. The hosts won the toss and elected to bat on a green track, newly prepared for the season.

SWCC’s openers got the team to a flying start with both the openers taking advantage of the good batting track. Opener Sergio Hilario scored 53 before he lost his wicket and his partner, Vincent Castle, was on fire hitting the bowlers all over the park.

Wiehann Meyer joined Castle at the crease and knocked 25 runs before losing his wicket.

Another youngster, Jovan Snyman, joined Castle at the crease. He started off batting patiently, but soon moved on to his big shots. The pair tore the Kuils River bowlers apart, with Castle going on to score 151 runs and Snyman getting120* in a great batting display.

Clive Andrew’s joined Snyman towards the end of the innings and scored a quick 25 to add to the massive total the team scored of 410.

Kuils River started off slow and were never in a position to chase down the massive total. The Somerset West bowlers bowled good line and length, and took regular wickets to restrict Kuils River to 170 (all out) in 46 overs.

All the SWCC bowlers chipped in during the innings, but Meyer was the pick of the lot, claiming four scalps.

The team hopes to keep the winning streak alive when they lock horns with Gugulethu CC this coming weekend.
