Hermanus gets bonus point

In round 4 of the Boland Promotion League this past weekend Hermanus hosted Malmesbury. The visitors arrived without their four-star batsman due to the Rural Provincial tournament that was held last week, Hermanus always had their eyes set on a bonus-point win.

Malmesbury won the toss on a fairly tame wicket and sent Hermanus in to bat. Openers Rudo Erasmus and Michael Robey ensured Hermanus had the best start possible as they passed the 50 run partnership mark in the 12th over. Lee-Irwin Alexander bowled some great lines and soon had the openers back in the hut, and it was Chad Kleinsmidt and Willie Smal who then took the home side to a comfortable position before Willie was caught at short cover with a blinder of a catch. Kleinsmidt continued to rotate the strike and showed mature cricket, but at 158/5 after 39th over the home side panicked and wickets started to fall regularly. Kleinmsidt was dismissed with a well played 52, and it was Blake Ludick who then came to the party, helping Hermanus pass the 200 run mark. But in the end Hermanus was bowled out for 212 within 50 overs.

With their top four batsmen on provincial duty it was always going to be a tough ask for Malmesbury to get the runs. And with Hanco Ellis and Jarod Wilson bowling full and straight it was too much of an ask to get the runs, both bowlers collecting four wickets each, and Philip van Wyngaardt also getting into the wickets column with Malmesbury bowled out for 78 runs in 28 overs gaining a much needed and deserved bonus-point win.

This coming weekend Hermanus first team travels to Piketberg, which is currently on top of the log, making this an important fixture for Hermanus.

Hermanus second team is playing at home against Piketberg’s second team this coming Saturday, and play starts at 10:00 so come show support at the club.
