RBCC-T20 vs Mechelen Eagles (away)

Match Report

The T20 team headed to Mechlen for a double header looking for the first proper win of the season. The boys turned up to an extremely wet early season ground.

In tough bowling conditions with a wet ball, Waqas and Wasooq kept the scoring rate down and the opposition found it very hard to score freely. The first change bowlers couldn’t keep the pressure and some easy runs were leaked. Chris came on and immediately started to pick up key wickets. Claiming 4 for 25, he was the most penetrative of the bowlers. Wasooq picked up 3 and with a flourish towards the end, the Eagles ended with a par score of 152/8 in the 20 overs.

RBCC started the chase with confidence keeping wickets intact. However the scoring rate fell in the power play and the required rate was already upto 10, by the time Khurram came in at 4. He helped push the scoring rate with a few strong hits along with Waqas, who easily top scored with a brilliant 69. However the rest of the batting order could not provide him the support from the other end, with wickets falling consistently. Wasooq gave some hope with 2 big sixes in the penultimate over, but with 18 required off the last over, it was too much to expect from the last 3. RBCC ended 15 short, but the tail put up an excellent fight to take it to the final over.
