A second consecutive away game for the first team against Hasselt CC on a bright and pleasant day started off good for RBBC, winning the toss and going in to bat. Sudhanshu and Maqsood opened the batting for RBCC and after an explosive start, Sudhanshu fell after firing some quick boundaries.

The second innings began with Ricky and Khurram starting the bowling, but RBCC were left wanting for wickets, on a pitch which had the ball coming nicely on to the bat and the outfield riddled with holes. A bowling change of brought in the first wicket in the 14th over. Another tough partnership was broken by Maqsood and pretty soon Hasselt CC were 3 down for 195. A spell of precise bowling from Ricky and Maqsood helped RBCC in picking a couple more wickets without a run being added and the match was tilting in RBCC’s favour. Some heavy blows by the Hasselt CC late middle order batsmen carried them home with 4 wickets in hand and 5 overs to spare. Maqsood had a brilliant day with both ball and bat. Jawad and Sudhanshu picked up a catch each and Ricky got two crucial wickets as well. The first team is yet to open its account, the only way is up from here. Let’s hope we can change our fortune from the next game.
