Players from Excelsior

The Excelsior Cricket Club kicked the season off on a winning note in the Boland Promotion T20 competition against Wellington’s Bergrivier. The match was played on Sunday 28 October at the Idas Valley Sports Ground.

After winning the toss Excelsior elected to bowl first. This proved to be a master stroke by new club captain Donovan Hendricks as the men from Wellington could only muster up 112/5, in their allocated 20 overs.

Bergrivier’s total was built on the efforts of R. April, who top scored with 39, and H. Adonis, 25. Excelsior’s main destroyer with the ball was Asiq Rhode, who claimed figures of 2/10. In reply, Excelsior reached the winning target in 18.2 overs, finishing on 113/7.

Opening batsman Yaasier Johnson top scored for the home team with 33* (2 x 4). As wickets tumbled at regular intervals, it was clear Johnson required a partner who would be able to get stuck in the middle with him. The call was duly answered by Salie Jacobs, 20 (1 x 6, 3 x 4). Together the two insured a well deserved victory for the men from Stellenbosch.

On Saturday Excelsior 2 played host to Van der Stel 2 in a 50 over match. Excelsior batted first and posted a modest 165 all out. The veteran Hassan Valentyn top-scored for Excelsior with a fluent 50 (9 x 4). He was aided by Joey April, 22 (3 x 4) and Yaasier Johnson, 24 (5 x 4). In Reply Van der Stel ended on 166/3 in 24 overs. Only Saeed Cornelson could trouble the VDS batsmen and returned figures of 2/30.
