Match report: 4 Oct 2014 played at PaarlHeads I bat - Tails you bowl!

Starting the 2014/2015 season away against Paarl, was always going to be an interesting start to the season. With a few debutants in the side looking to impress their new club, we started really well.

Grant and Manrich got us off to a great start, scoring 107 runs for the 1st wicket partnership. Zahier came in next chipping in with a good solid 40 runs for a second wicket partnership of 81 runs (188/2). During the second wicket partnership, Grant reached his maiden century for the club. Grant was dismissed the very next ball after Zahier for a well played 100. Our power hitter, Michael Loubser (AKA Hitler) finished off with a blitzing 80 of 36 balls (7x6 and 4x4), helping us to post a very good score of 284/6 on a low and slow wicket.

We went into field next, knowing we had a few things to work on. Mondle and Johan started us off, both bowling great opening spells. Ockie, Herman (Vellies) and Michael backed up the good start with very economical bowling figures. Johan Laubser was very good in the field and helped himself to a direct hit run out.

In the end we restricted them to 167/6 which is 117 runs short of the total. With a good all round team performance, we all are looking forward to a great season for BCC and the push to finish top of the log!
