VCC quickly had the top order batsmen O’Dowd, Berry and De Kok. Edwards and Seelaar was the partnership to be broken. When Laurens Boissevain cleverly caught Seelaar (top scorer with 18) on fine leg, the intermediate score was 51 for four wickets. That did not empty the cup of poison for the Rotterdammers. It had no answer to the varied Voorburg attack (in which Ryan Klein again emphatically angled for a starting place in the Orange with 3-14) and stumbled to 93 all out without conviction (Shariz 2-12, Mees van Vliet 2-8). Although VCC lost five more wickets, Noah Croes (33 not out) finished the job in 12.4 overs.
On Tuesday, June 6, the Dutch cricket squad will leave for Zimbabwe for World Cup qualification in the 50-over variant; the Netherlands has already qualified for the World Cup in the short game variant T20.
VCC’ers Levitt, Croes, Kingma, Klein, Shariz and Van Beek will be joined in Harare by their former teammates Aryan Dutt and Bas de Leede, making the Voorburg contribution to the Orange greater than ever.
