Cricket: Ranking for 27 October, 2012

What was supposed to be a massive showdown in the Cape between Rondebosch and SACS never really materialized as Rondebosch seized control from the start and never let go.

 

ranksThe Bosch opening bowlers, Dayyaan Galiem (2/26) and Hayes van der Berg (3/24), made life uncomfortable for the men from Dean Street by getting the new ball to swing appreciably. SACS were soon on the back foot at 30/4 and facing a fired up Bosch squad.

Morning tea was taken at 43 for 4 and the reintroduction of Galiem to the attack brought immediate reward for Rondebosch, with danger man James Williams being trapped in front with the second ball after the break. Two unnecessary run outs and another Galiem strike saw SACS teetering on 53 for 8. Van Loggerenberg and Bowerman played responsibly and when Van Loggerenberg departed, Nick Steenekamp joined Bowerman. These two showed the top order how to play against a tiring seam attack, mixing resolute defence with some creative strokeplay. The 10th wicket partnership yielded 64 runs, nearly doubling the total to 133 before Bowerman was caught and bowled by Jay.

The Rondebosch reply began steadily with both Keagan Smith and Matthew Christensen seeming settled at the crease. An unfortunate mix-up in the running saw Christensen (16) stranded ending the 43 run opening stand. Hayes van der Berg (23) continued his good form before falling to a lazy shot, which brought Zubayr Hamza to the wicket. Smith and Hamza (26 not out) took the home side to the finish line with a controlled 52 run partnership - Keagan Smith finishing on 64 not out including 8 crisply struck boundaries to record an 8-wicket win for Rondebosch.

Grey College had the better of St.David’s with a comprehensive 8 wicket win after their bowlers had restricted the home team to an unimpressive 140 all out. Grey will be pleased with this result after failing last week against Affies.

Affies enjoyed a four wicket win over St.Benedict’s and in so doing edged into the top 3 on the table. St.Benedict’s may well be regretting not getting a bigger score from their batters because once again their bowler defended the small total well. Needing a mere 86 runs to win, St.Benedict’s managed to take six Affies wickets before they reached the winning total.

Parktown Boy’s made short work of Gauteng Development hammering them by 207 runs with Glenn Adams taking a breathtaking 6/19 and Keith Dudgeon getting 97 runs against a bowling attack that struggled to match the Parktown middle order batters stroke play.

There were good wins by Brackenfell who beat HTS Bellville by 6 wickets and it will be interesting to see how Brakkies fare against slightly stronger opposition as they seem to have the team to cause a few surprises.

The JHB North derby between Fourways and Northcliff looked to be heading the way of Northcliff at one stage, before Dane Heymans found his length to claim 6/33 in his ten overs and handed Fourways a 40 run win.

St.Andrew’s Bloem also had a productive weekend with a solid win over St.Stithian’s who would have been the favorites to win this one. However K.Pienaar who got 82 runs and R.du Plessis who struck 48 run’s gave impetus to their run chase and they managed to easily overhaul the 205 set by Saints and win by five wickets.

St.Andrew’s College had a good win over Grey High who they beat by four wickets and Kingswood College thumped an out of sorts Cambridge by six wickets. Other Eastern Province matches of note featured Queen’s who handed Dale yet another drubbing, beating their rivals by 8 wickets and Framesby annihilated Daniel Pienaar. Bowling Daniel Pienaar all out for on 58 runs, Framesby reached the target in six overs without losing a wicket with opening batsman Tiaan Potgieter reaching 52 not out.

St. John’s College beat a competitive Trinityhouse side by 94 runs and that win sees them creeping slowly into the top 10 on the table. M.Strydom top scored with 93 runs and C.Hartman claimed 4/31. SJC on their day are able to compete with any team out there and it will be interesting to see how they go against Pretoria Boy’s in a couple of week’s time.

St.Alban’s continue to put together a great season with a 84 run win over Alberton Schools and Jeppe played well to beat Randburg.

For yet another weekend matches were rained off in KZN but one match that did get underway was the Kearsney v Northwood match which was reduced to 36 overs per side.   Kearsney successfully defended their modest total to win by 26 runs. Lambert was in good nick with a fluent 68 runs, whilst Jordaan had a wonderful spell to end up with 4/17 and bundle Northwood out for 123 runs.

 

Milnerton struck 174/9 in their match against Edgemead High and were in complete control as they ran out winners by 51 runs and Paul Roos recorded an impressive 11 run win over Somerset College.

 

A look at the table and Wynberg are still in first position after thrashing Bishops by 7 wickets in a bigger than expected victory. Imtiyaaz Groenewald and Dyllan Matthews were the destroyers in chief for Wynberg claiming 5 and 3 wickets respectively. Matthews, the young leggie, is a prospect to keep an eye one and once again managed to mesmerize the opposition. Bishops with just 80 runs to defend were never in the game and were unable to stop Wynberg reaching the target.

 

There are plenty more results we will add as the week progresses. If you would like to submit a short report on any matches played please send it This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will tell the world about it!
