New commers Pro-Ed Old Boys Cricket Club (PEOBCC) I defeated the defending champions Blue Waters Cricket Club (BWCC) with 46 runs in an epic final and clinched the T20 Coastal Cricket League.

The match took place at the Pro-Ed Akademie Sports Field.

The home side won the toss and elected to bat. They wasted no time and scored 188 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in their allotted 20 overs.

Herman van Zyl (not out) smashed 103 runs (including eight 4’s and seven 6’s) from 61 balls. This performance earned him the man of the match award. Marco Malan also added 44 runs (including two 4’s and four 6’s) from 25 balls for PEOBCC I.

Bowlers, Salomon Nuuyoma and John -Eric Tierrauch each claimed two scalps for Blue Waters Cricket Club I. Both bowled 4 overs each with Tierrauch being hit for 40 runs and Nuuyoma for 37 runs.

The Walvis Bay-based BWCC batsmen put up a spirited fight but could only manage 142 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in their reply. Renaldo Julie scored 35 runs (including three 4’s and three 6’s) from 22 balls, captain Matthew De Gouveia added 32 runs (including one 4 and three 6’s) from 27 balls and Zhivago Groenewald scored 29 runs (including two 4’s and three 6’s) from 15 balls.

Fritz Coetzee also put in a superb bowling performance for PEOBCC I. He claimed 3 wickets in 4 overs and conceded 19 runs. Eric Wilson and Jaco Le Roux both claimed 2 wickets each with each having bowled 4 overs. Wilson was hit for 34 and Le Roux for 17 runs.

“It feels fantastic to win, being a new club, we couldn’t have asked for anything better,” said the PEOBCC I head coach Ruan Oosthuizen.

He added that it was a tight game. “We only started gaining momentum after the twelfth over, when we were bowling.”

Blue Waters Cricket Club I’s head coach, Justus Hangula, said that although they started the game well things did not go their way in the end.

“Our bowling was impressive but we however threw the match away,” he said.

The teams now go back to the drawing board as they prepare for the shortest form of the game, which is the T10 competition, which is scheduled to commence next week.
