Strong performance from West

Strong performance from West

Local rivals overcome.

On a good pitch for batting West won the toss and decided to bat first. After an early wicket Young and Oliver set a 100 run platform, then the acceleration came in the last 30 overs. The innings can be roughly split in two, with a fairly orthodox approach for 30 overs and an impressive attack in the last 20 overs where 170 runs were scored.

Clydesdale helped the cause with 37 extras (including 27 wides and three byes). the home side also dropped three catches at crucial times.
However, it was still an exceptional batting performance with good stands, individual runs (Young, Kleinveldt and Fearn all passing fifty) and an early attack allowed by a well-set platform.

The bowling performance was also as effective. For 17 of the first 27 overs (those bowled by Kleinveldt, McNulty and Oliver), West were way ahead of the game. There were some poor overs, but these were far outweighed by tight lines and good use of the bounce and movement in the pitch.

Rain ended the match early, but West were ahead on DLS by 44 runs, and so comfortably won the match via rain calculation.
