Stunning Innings from Kleinveldt

By

Pro hits West to victory

McCrea West of Scotland's first home T20 of the season was played in sunny but cool conditions. The pitch looked a good and Ian Young decided to set the tone by choosing to bat.

Kleinveldt dominated proceedings at three, smashing 85 in 53 balls. His nine boundaries (five fours, four sixes) included a towering Masla Twist Maximum that sailed over the WM Mann Gate and into Peel Street and another that needed to be retrieved from the Burgh Hall end car park. A bad night to park for local residents. The one blot on this otherwise epic copybook was a mysteriously optimistic call from the pro that left him stranded and run out. Regardless, it was one of the finest T20 knocks to grace Hamilton Crescent in recent memory.

Sprightly twenties from both Fearn (the left hander with a six of his own) and Farndale kept both ends motoring as West reached a huge total of 171-7. 14 boundaries were scored.

Clydesdale lacked power players, but the top order looked to score quickly with drop and run tactics. The opening pair put on 44 in 42 balls as West rotated the bowlers to keep the rate climbing. The spinners, Farndale (2-21) and Hulatt (1-30) took top order wickets, including the prized scalp of Ashraf. Clydesdale could not get any West bowler away. A 33 ball 39 not out (one boundary) from Dhami summed up the whole innings, which could never get into top gear.

Needing more than 10 an over for most of the innings, Clydesdale never challenged the total and finished on 129-7. A comfortable 42 run victory.
