Bloemendaal travel down to Rotterdam to take on the leaders in this year completion, we Knew that we needed to have the Best team on the park if we had any change to challenge VOC. We Managed to get 10Players for this Game, with the absence of Q who was call up for national Duties and Norbert who was would sick, we realized that all player would need to give 110% effort if we had any chance in upsetting the Winning trend of VOC
Bloemendaal lost the toss and was bowling first Masood and Aldroy opened the bowling on a slow Low wicket and felt like a Day 5 wicket. The opening bowler did well without any success the bowling was change around with Hugh, Shied, Aziz and douwe to fill up the over for the 5th bowler, when we took the first drinks break the Score was 134/1 in 18th Over, and we told ourselves that we need to suck it up and fight hard with the next 32overs going for 153 Runs with VOC ending at 270/9 in 50 Overs pick of the bowler was Aldroy with 9 overs 3/28 and David with 10overs 3/55
We all know that if we wanted to get close to the total we needed a few good partnership in the middle and 2 player to get a big score. The batting started with Douwe and Hugh opening and batting positive, but did not last too long with Douwe being the first to fall and then came in David, Hugh and David did a good job and working on a partnership of 80 run with good hitting and aggressive running between wickets when Hugh innings came to an end, we needed someone else to bat with David and get the runs. All batsmen followed did not hang around too long with david as he was hitting the wall well. Pick of the batsmen was David making his first ton for bloemendaal and Hugh making 41.
with No T20 in the upcoming week all forcus would be on taking on VCC at Home
