Bermudan Seniors

Post by Cyrus » Mon Jan 11, 2021 8:21 pm

Been a while since seniors posted here, so it’s well overdue for one of these, and with some time up my sleeve here it is.

ODI3 game 1.
After winning the toss and bowling on a crumbling deck and some cloud around to help the bowlers
Vyfhuis started poorly and after going for 10 off the 1st
Capt. Ignatius Scott through the ball to off spinner Hannays to stem the flow, bowling tight lines he only leaked 8 runs from his first 3 overs.
But it was the move to bring the old stalwart Gregg on into the wind that proved a master stroke, Gregg renowned for his Mitchell Stark like in swinging Yorkers produced, what has to be a contender for ball of the season, an absolute Jaffa of a 1st nut sending Khanum not only back to the sheds but off to hospital for X-rays when he failed to get his big toe out of the way.
With another wicket maiden in his 2nd over Gregg had 2/0 off 2 and the Mudains where on there way.
After Gregg (4/26), Joseph (2/25) and Burnham (4/22) picked there way through the rest of the line up we where left with a target of 161 for victory.
After a shaky start from Yearwood and de Groen we found ourselves 2/13 in the 5th over but a steadying 23 from captain Scott and a 109 run partnership from Ramnarine (50 off 66) and Chinsammy (68* off 109) not even a mini collapse losing 3 late wickets could stop us from storming home to a 4 wicket win with more than 10 overs to spare.
MOTM Ravi Gregg 4/26
Next match here ———>V’s Netherlands

Game 2 V’s The Netherlands
What can I say, outmatched, outclassed and massively out rated
Going down by 71 runs and being out rated by near on 16.5K, a bridge too far.. although we were in it up to the 35th over when we were still ahead on the comparative
Only real bright lights were Scott with 37 and McCutchin with 4/38
Next game V’s USA

Game 3 V’s USA
Like an impeachment through a Trump administration, Ravi Gregg has torn through not only the top order of the USA, but also through the heart of there batting lineup taking the top 7 batsmen on his way to career best figures of 7/23 in a crucial match for the proud nation of Bermuda.
Set 159 for victory on a pitch that was playing tricks all night, Bermuda started steadily with Yearwood (20), de Groen (38) and Elliot (27) all getting starts at the top of the order before wickets started falling at a steady pace.
Enter Lester Doyle, who’s grit and determination was at the forefront tonight as wickets tumbled around him, Doyle (46no off 83) was unmovable as he steered Bermuda to a fighting 1 wicket win and by this reporter’s calculations also securing a spot in the upcoming World Cup.
Speaking after the game MOTM Gregg said “ it’s a great thing ( playing in the World Cup), but we’re not satisfied with just making it, the jobs not done yet.
And with Gregg in career best form and bowling what one commentator described as “some of the best spells of fast bowling he’d ever seen”, if Bermuda can get the batting to click, they may just be a smoky for a semi final birth in next month’s World Cup.
Game 4 V’s South Africa a must win for Bermuda to have any hope of climbing back into Div 2

Game 4 V’s SA
Asked to bowl first it was a slow but steady grind as eventually SA were bundled out for 219

Joseph 4/29 was pick of the bowlers
Then it was the best batting performance of the year
With Elliot opening the batting with 57 and Chinsammy 95* guiding Bermuda to a 6 wicket win
Last game is a winner promotes loser stays in Div 3 game against Ireland

Game 5 V’s Ireland
This one burns...
To out rate a side by almost 19K at this level and walk away with a lose really hurts...
Anyway set 187 for victory Ragoo was brilliant with 4/23 well supported by the rest of the bowling unit, we just lost wickets at regular intervals falling 19 runs short with more than 6 overs remaining, we bat our overs we win, it was that simple
Chinsammy 37, Kennedy 29 & Ragoo 23 were the standouts.
