Win over basement side.

East Kilbride won the toss, chosing to bat first on a wicket with pace. However, Kleinveldt quickly made it 12-3 from five overs, and Smith added another as the pair bowled the first 14 overs for 27-4.

EK struggled to recover, facing a lot of dot balls in an efforts to bat the overs. A 67 stand allowed a recovery from the depths, but the visitors were still only 61-4 at 25 overs. The pace was was slowing creeping up as the pair settled, particularly Iqbal who hit 46 of the runs for the 5th wicket, ending up with a well struck 51.

West bowled and fielded tightly and the EK batsman did not hit the gaps regularly enough to post a par total. However, they did hit 18 boundaries, hinting their long game was strong but the short game was lacking against West’s attack.

The 5th wicket fell in the 30th over, and after this no pair could put a partnership together to go big at the death. However, credit must be given to the 8th wicket pair, who put on 20 when EK could have been bowled out for under 130. The last man was out off the last ball, East Kilbride on 146, well below par.

If EK made the pitch look tricky, West made it look a dream. Young and Braithwaite put in 33 in five overs. Braithwaite made his maiden 50 while Oliver joined him to get the score up to 100 in the 17th over.

The game looked already won when Kleinveldt walked out, but the former International made sure and smashed 44 in 13 balls to finish the game in short time. A comfortable win for West and a strong all round performance.
