VCC wins over Hermes DVS after difficult start

VCC again lost the toss was asked by Hermes to bat first. A logical choice. Because of the rain, the wicket was wet and there was still moisture in the air. Expectedly, that was difficult batting and it showed. In the first 6 overs, the wickets were already falling ripe apples. At a score of 23 for the loss of 4 wickets after 6 overs, the home supporters present were a bit worried. However, the experienced Sybrand Engelbrecht and Ryan Klein did not let themselves be fooled and batted out the 20 overs with concentration. First with good running and in the end with more and more boundaries. The batting innings concluded with two nice sixes by Ryan Klein that brought the tally to 163. Not only a great partnership of 140 runs, but also a well-defended total, which everyone had immediately signed up for after 6 overs.

Hermes also got off to a difficult start batting. The fit again Viv Kingma struck immediately in the first over and had top batsmen Klijnhans and Doyle within 6 balls for 0 aside. After six overs and a ball, it was also only 31 runs for Hermes. But where VCC straightened its back at that point, Hermes failed to do so, including a fiver for Floris de Lange, also returning from injury. He made the last two victims in the 17th over, aided by two stumpings from wicketkeeper Noah Croes, and thus the matter was settled. VCC won convincingly against the newcomer to the highest level by 61 runs. The joy of victory became even greater when it was revealed that VCC 2 had defeated Quick 1 in the T20 main class at Nieuw Hanenburg.

The game against HBS later in the day was started but not finished due to rain and will be made up later.
