SWCC march on to finals

Somerset West Cricket Club’s (SWCC) first team travelled to Gordon’s Bay on a cold, windy and wet Sunday afternoon of 27 October to play in the semi finals of the AMA20 competition against Hottentots Holland Cricket Club (HHCC).

HHCC won the toss and elected to bat first. Captain Michael Osborn (4-2-8-3) and young gun Andre van Heerden (4-0-19-0) made it very difficult for the costs to score with some tight and accurate bowling.

As a result HHCC could never get their innings going and veteran Sergio Hilario had two direct hit run outs that put the final nail in the coffin of the HHCC innings at 78 all out.

A great all-round bowling performance – other notable contributions were from Eugene Geldenhuys with 4-0-12-2, S Southey 2-0-7-1 and Gouws Koen 2-0-9-1.

Hilario and Larry Morkel opened the batting for SWCC and needed to bat at more than four runs per over to be ahead of the Duckworth Lewis calculation for rain stoppages.

They had a steady start and laid the foundation for the rest of the innings – Hilario lost his wicket on 14 while Larry Morkel played an experienced innings going out for 28.

Malcolm Stuurman followed up with a solid contribution of 12 quickly scored runs, SWCC eventually chasing the total down with four wickets to spare.

Once again the SWCC first team have made it to the AMA20 finals to be played at Newlands next year. The opponents will be Pinelands.
