RBCC2 vs Beveren CC (home)

Match Report

On Sunday, the 26 th of May 2019, RBCC were headed into their second game of division 5 league match against Beveren CC2 at Lasne. Having won the toss, RBCC were asked to field first.

Into the third over, Ricky gave an early breakthrough to RBCC as the opener was trapped for a leg before. While the opposition were looking to consolidate, Khuram surprised their one down with a left-side dive,
pick-up and throw at the bowler’s end that eventually set off a spirited RBCC’s 1 st innings hunt for wickets. Subsequently, Maqsood announced his arrival as Sudhanshu caught the other opener who edged a leaving delivery.

At 14 for 3, the opposition were perplexed while the taverners were only getting hungry for more. Into the 11 th over, Ricky took back-to-back wickets to send their no. 5 (Manuj caught a firmly struck ball brilliantly at mid-on) and no. 6 (cleaned-up!) back to the pavilion. What appeared to be their last bastion of reprieve, the no. 4 batsmen (32 of 24 balls) didn’t last too long as he was comfortably caught at point by Vinay off Ricky. And to complement the exciting proceedings, Maqsood had a caught & bowled and a leg before chance that he couldn’t resist to miss; Khuram had a clean-up job in hand the moment a T20-style reverse scoop shot unfolded out of nowhere only to end up disturbing the furniture. To conclude, it was none other than the skipper Matthew himself who had to cover quite some round to time a superb catch of a miscued shot over wide mid-off. By then, RBCC had successfully reduced the opposition to a miniscule total of 93 all out in 20.1 overs.

In their chase, RBCC openers Maqsood (19) and Arun (12) put on a convincing partnership of 41 runs for the first wicket. With a good hand from Jawad (14) and as others chipped in, RBCC sealed the game in the 24th
over by 4 wickets.
