Topklasse Live | Round 2 | As it Happened


 Bertus de Jong  18:23
So HCC hold on to snatch the win in a a nail-biter at de Diepput, three entirely comfortable wins for HBS, ACC and Excelsior across the rest of the round, those three all now 2 from 2 at the top of the table. Check back here for photos and scorecards as they come in. We’ll be back next week of course for round three, previews for that in due course. Until then this is a rather frustrated Bertus de Jong signing off from a Faraday cage down a well in 1993 or something.


Table2
The Topklasse table after round 2

 Dosti-United vs HCC  18:10
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 230-7 (49.4 overs)
Douwe Walhain, we hear, has just sealed a dramatic win for HCC, going into the last over needing 10 runs for the win: dot, two, two, six.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  18:05
ACC : 290-7 (50 overs)
Quick : 188 all out (44.5 overs)
Quick capitulated some time ago it seems


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  18:01
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 170 all out (44.5 overs)
All over here meanwhile. Sparta down to their last pair as a leading edge off de Mey sees Saleem caught by Barresi, Hoornweg launches de Mey over the square boundary on the fourth delivery of the next over but is duly bowled next ball.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  17:55
ACC : 290-7 (50 overs)
Quick : 183-8 (39 overs)
Quick crumbling now, eight down and still more than 100 behind, just a matter of time now.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  17:45
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 152-8 (41 overs)
Asking rate still climbing here, and Sparta crumbling. Singh misses a straight one from Vink and then Sardha spoons one up to mid off to gift Barresi his second wicket.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  17:35
ACC : 290-7 (50 overs)
Quick : 168-6 (37.1 overs)
Young goes for 115, caught off Kumar.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  17:28
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 138-6 (36.5 overs)
And another down here, Buurman looking to go big off Barresi but can’t clear the man on the square boundary. Manminder Singh in at 7 and things looking rather desperate for Sparta now.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  17:25
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 161-4 (37 overs)
Scratch that, Street no longer there, trapped LBW for 63 by a bowler presumably, our sources didn’t specify. Overdijk joins Gorlee, and a long way to go still.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  17:15
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 157-3 (36 overs)
Drinks at de Diepput, Street still there on 63* but the runs are hard to find. Still HCC’s game to lose though, 73 needed from 14 overs.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  17:12
ACC : 290-7 (50 overs)
Quick : 118-5 (30 overs)
Some belated intelligence leaking out of Nieuw Hanenburg, where Rupert Young is playing a defiant innings with precious little support. He has 84 of Quick’s 118 runs in what already looks a lost cause.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  17:08
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 112-5 (32 overs)
Nelson threatens again as Buurman cuts Vink to point but it’s shelled. Gibson replaces Westdijk.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  17:00
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 107-5 (30.1 overs)
And that’s a big wicket! Westdijk’s third as he has Bukhari bakc in the crease and finds the edge, great low take from Visee going to his right, Snoep joins Buurman and hard to see a way back for the hosts from here.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  16:55
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 102-4 (29 overs)
100 up for Sparta now as a thick outside edge off Barresi eludes Visee and runs away for four. Bukhari looking in a belligerent mood on 34*, but the asking rate still climbing and not a whole lot of batting to come.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  16:50
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 142-3 (30 overs)
Half-century for Wiffen too, but that’s as far as he’ll get. Trapped LBW for 50 exactly, Gorlee joins Street.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  16:40
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 145-3 (33.5 overs)
This match turned on eight overs in the Voorburg innings, in the course of which the home side slumped from 82 for two to 94 for seven. There was no way back from there, and although Brandon Glover and Yasir Hamid flourished briefly, Umar Baker’s six-wicket haul was a match-winning effort on a pitch which again made batting very tricky indeed. Glover and Viv Kingma worked hard to achieve an unlikely fightback when Excelsior replied, but with Tim Etman surviving chances and near-chances for a dogged 81 the Schiedammers battled their way to a seven-wicket victory.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  16:35
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 125-2 (25 overs)
Fifty for Street, Wiffen just six behind him. This pair look to have the chase well in hand for now.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  16:33
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 77-4 (21 overs)
Breakthrough at Bermweg meanwhile, Khan has Tarr well caught by Singh low in front of square. Buurman in.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  16:29
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 145-3 (33.5 overs)
On the brink of victory, Etman’s long battle comes to an end. Glover returns from the Pavilion End, and after hitting him for two fours the Excelsior opener edges low to De Grooth at slip and goes for 81. Tom Heggelman joins Kroesen, who finishes it with a powerful straight drive off Boissevain which runs to the sightscreen.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  16:25
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 101-2 (22 overs)
Hundred up for HCC in the meantime, and the fifty partnership for Wiffen and Street.


 Bertus de Jong  16:23
Our apologies, incidentally, for the slightly spotty service today. The internet connection at Bermweg appears to be routed through 1996.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  16:15
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 120-2 (29.4 overs)
I should shut up. Etman swings a Boissevain full toss through backward square for four, but when Parchment comes on strike the leggie gets one past him and into his stumps. Joost Kroesen in at five.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  16:17
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 73-3 (18 overs)
Tarr and Bukhari rebuilding for HBS as we go to drinks, the latter’s had a little luck, dropped off the bowling of Julian de Mey, who’s operating from the far end. Gibson looking quick but still wicketless from the pavilion end.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  15:59
ACC : 290-7 (50 overs)
Quick : 24-3 (11 overs)
Another down at Nieuw Hanenburg, Barends has two now as he traps Doc Mol in front.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  15:56
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 74-2 (17 overs)
Wiffen and Street in the middle for HCC now, on 27 and 17 respectively.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  15:51
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 79-1 (22 overs)
Kingma is putting in a very useful spell from the Paddock End, and Parchment treats him with great respect. But when Matt Smit replaces Mulder Etman, beginning to look a little more at ease after hitting Mulder for three fours in one over, plants him lustily over long on for six and moves on to 40. Excelsior move inexorably on, but then, Voorburg were looking pretty good at the same point of their innings . . .


 Quick Haag vs ACC  15:50
ACC : 290-7 (50 overs)
Quick : 21-2 (9 overs)
Quick two down already early in the chase.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  15:48
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 49-2 (12 overs)
Staal goes chipping back a return catch for 25.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  15:42
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 41-3 (9 overs)
Two for Westdijk as Coster takes a fine low catch at Gully, FLetcher the man to go for 15. Bukhari in at 5.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  15:33
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 56-1 (17 overs)
They’ve taken a drink at Westvliet, and as they resume Ingram heads for the boundary, having apparently taken a knock an over or two ago. He’s not in any obvious distress, but he’s retired hurt and is replaced by Parchment.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  15:28
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 22-2 (5 overs)
Another down here, de kok caught behind off Westdijk, who’s looking pretty sharp today. Garnett Tarr at four and still looking for his first Topklasse run.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  14:10
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
HCC : 11-1 (2 overs)
Early breakthrough at de Diepput too, Itaghi gone LBW and not too happy about it.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  15:15
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Sparta : 15-1 (2 overs)
Back on at Bermweg and Coster strikes in the second over, Ali Raza sends up a steepler on the pull and Vink’s under it. De Kok in at three to join Fletcher, Westdijk from the other end.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  15:03
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 39-1 (12 overs)
The Excelsior pair are finding it hard work, but they’re hanging in against Glover’s movement at lively pace and Floyd’s drift and turn. So successfully indeed, that Stef Mulder replaces Floyd – and Etman drives him back straight for four. And when Glover drops short to Ingram the West Indian pulls him hard through square leg for another.

 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  14:37
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 13-1 (5.2 overs)
Glover strikes! Shankar swings at a straighter inswinger, gets a thin edge, and keeper Noah Croes dives low to his right to take an excellent catch. Lorenzo Ingram in at three.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  14:35
ACC : 290-7 (50 overs)
After a maiden fifty last week, a maiden ton today for Shirase Rasool. He finishes unbeaten on 115*. 291 will be the target for Quick after the break, and it’ll take some chasing.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  14:31
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior : 5-0 (4 overs)
Glover soon has Etman groping outside the off stump, and the Excelsior opener has a life in Floyd’s second over as he edges just past De Grooth at slip. And Glover’s looking pretty sharp as Voorburg defend their low total.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  14:26
HBS : 242 all out (49.1 overs)
Westdijk manages to add just one to the score before chipping a dolly to Tarr at cover off Bukhari, and Gibson himslef goes on the first ball of the final over, looking to hit Hoornweg over his head against the wind, caught by Tarr again coming in off the rope, last man out for a useful 31.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  14:23
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Excelsior 5-0 (1 over)
Based perhaps on their unhappy experience with the bat, Voorburg open with Clayton Floyd from the Pavilion End, bowling to Tim Etman and Sanjit Shankar. A fairly quiet opening, and then it’s Brandon Glover from the Paddock End.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  14:17
HBS : 239-8 (48 overs)
Gibson playing a smart hand at the close with the tail, cuts Hoornweg away behind square for four and then runs him down to third man to reatin the strike. He’s on 29 now, but he’s lost De Mey, Westdijk with him with 2 to go.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  14:10
Dosti : 229-9 (50 overs)
Kohli reaches his century to the sound of clattering wickets, he finishes unbeaten on 108, Dosti on 229-9.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  14:08
ACC : 233-3 (43 overs)
Rasool just 12 away, 7 overs to go. Marais with him and already on to 19*


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  14:03
HBS : 218-7 (45 overs)
Gibson and Vink looking handy for the 7th wicket for HBS, Vink picks up a shorter one from Saleem and heaves it over midwicket, but gone three balls later as he looks to flick one away fine and loses his leg stump. De Mey joins Gibson


 Quick Haag vs ACC  13:55
ACC : 209-3 (40 overs)
ACC lose their third, Saqib bowled Brand for 17. Rasool still there though and into the 80s. He hit his first fifty last week, has a shot at another milestone today.


 Rod Lyall  13:50
Umar Baker’s 6-46 is the third time he has taken six or more wickets in a Topklasse match, his best 7-21 against Dosti United in 2015.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  13:48
Dosti : 195-6 (45.4 overs)
Kohli still losing partners as they head into the death, two more for Hidde Overdijk and HCC holding tough chances. Kohli into the 80s now though.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  13:45
VCC : 144 all out (37.4 overs)
Hamid continues to go after Baker, but he does it once too often, as a lofted drive to long on is well taken by Parchment. Two balls later Kingma is trapped in front, and Baker finishes with six for 46 as Voorburg collapse from 82 for two to 144 all out in the space of 21 overs.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  13:43
HBS : 181-6 (40 overs)
And Sardha has the wicket he wanted, Elkin slashing at a fuller ball outside off and a thick edge flies to de Kok at gully, gone for 58. And one brings two, next over Singh draws Coster forward, overbalanced, beats the bat and Buurman does the rest. Vink and Gibson the new pair


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  13:32
HBS : 175-4 (36 overs)
Fifty for Elkin comes up after drinks, still no sign of real acceleration though. Spin at both ends still as Sardha continues.


 ☀ Weather Update ☀  13.25
Genuinely clement weather here at Bermweg, radar looks good all over. Taken my coat off for the first time this season.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  13:23
VCC : 135-8 (35 overs)
Hamid evidently has other ideas, as he takes 15 off a Baker over, prompting a double bowling change. Parchment returns at the Paddock End, and Ingram switches ends. That doesn’t stop Hamid, however, who lofts his final delivery over long on and halfway up the bank. They take another drink.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  13:21
Dosti : 152-3 (29 overs)
Taruwar Kohli meanwhile has his first fifty of the season, though Barat Itaghi has deprived him of another parter – Tewarie caught for 33. 150 up for Dosti though with 11 overs to go.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  13:20
ACC : 155-2 (30 overs)
Doc Mol meanwhile has Rehmat caught and bowled for 80, no Sikander today though, as a side strain will likely keep him sidelined for another week or two. Saqib joins Rasool.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  13:19
HBS : 164-4 (33 overs)
Barresi goes for 27 just as he was starting to accelerate, top edging Manminder Singh and taken ten yards in from the rope. Coster in to join Elkin, who’s closing in on fifty.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  13:10
VCC : 111-8 (31 overs)
Glover takes the long handle to Baker, and it works for a while. But then he tries to go big over long off, and it drops short for Rens van Troost to take a very good catch. Yasir Hamid in as the innings enters endgame.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  12:55
ACC : 123-1 (28 overs)
Fifty for Rasool too now, brings it up in style with a towering six over square leg.

 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  12:54
VCC : 94-7 (26 overs)
And the chaos continues, as Boissevain gets in a tangle against Ingram and the ball lobs up for Woutersen. Viv Kingma joins Glover.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  12:51
HBS : 126-3 (25 overs)
Scoring rate has slowed appreciably here since Visee’s departure, as it usually does, but Elkin looking solid. Drives Saleem wide of extra cover for four to move to 35, Barresi watchful on 2*. Snoep returns at the other end.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  12:45
Dosti : 95-2 (28 overs)
A diving one-handed grab from Tonny Staal brings the second breakthrough at de Diepput, Ahmed falls to Klaus for 42.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  12:41
VCC : 84-6 (22.3 overs)
What Voorburg did not need in this situation was to lose a soft wicket. But that’s what happens, as Floyd tries to hit Baker over cow and holes out to Tim Etman on the boundary instead. Brandon Glover in as it all threatens to fall apart.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  12:41
HBS : 111-3 (23 overs)
Nelson strikes! Singh fencing at a wide one from Saleem and feathers through to Buurman. Barresi in, Hoornweg to continue, Elkin on 25*.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  12:36
VCC : 83-5 (20.3 overs)
And more drama, as Smit tries to sweep Ingram, and the ball flies to Parchment’s left. Umpire Akram’s finger goes up, and Smit has to go, for 46. Clayton Floyd comes in, but four balls later Gigani goes, caught at slip by Ingram off Baker. Three wickets since drinks, for the addition of two runs. Philippe Boissevain in, at a moment of real crisis for Voorburg.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  12:35
ACC : 100-1 (20 overs)
Hundred up for ACC in the 20th over, and fifty for Rehmat Zulfiqar. Rasool with him in the thirties.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20 12:27
VCC : 83-3 (18.5 overs)
A double bowling change after drinks, with Lorenzo Ingram on at the Paddock End and Umar Baker from the other. Nottle takes a massive swing at the latter’s fifth delivery, but it’s the bat that flies, caber-like, in the direction of square leg, while the ball comes to rest against the base of the stumps. Exit Nottle, ruefully, stage right. Enter Nihan Gigani.


 Quick Haag vs ACC  12:25
ACC : 86-1 (17 overs)
Just the one down at Quick too, though further details are scarce.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  12:25
Dosti : 77-1 (24 overs)
Overdijk still the only HCC bowler with any reward. Ahmed and Kohli at the crease for Dosti, on 39* and 28* respectively.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  12:21
HBS : 97-2 (18 overs)
Gomes doesn’t last long though, hit on the pads first ball by Hoornweg and given. Singh in at four as Hoornweg completes a wicket maiden. Elkin still there on 18*.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  12:15
VCC : 81-2 (17 overs)
Drinks at Westvliet, with the home side having laid the foundations of another decent total. Matt Smit has picked up where he left off last week, and he’s played a series of fine shots on his way to 44 not out. Parchment has been the pick of the Excelsior bowlers, and Bhatti has had a couple of decent appeals. Nicely poised at this stage, but Excelsior really need to see the back of Smit.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  12:12
HBS : 97-1 (16.5 overs)
Visee’s onslaught is brought to an end, looking to hit Saleem back over his head but can only send up a skier, Bukhari under it and makes no mistake. Sparta a very happy to see the back of him, Saleem perhaps a little too happy, pointing him three times to the dressing room. Visee gone for 75 off 43, HBS 97-1 after 16.5, Gomes in at three after drinks.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  11:56
VCC : 55-2 (12.2 overs)
Parchment has tied things up from the Paddock End, but Smit continues on his merry way when Sohail Bhatti replaces Heggelman. But it’s the bowler who strikes back, inducing an edge from Croes through to keeper David Woutersen. Steve Nottle comes to the crease.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  11:47
HBS : 69-0 (11 overs)
Real frustration for the hosts here, Visee dropped twice in the deep, man out at deep backward square runs under the first and then dives over the next. Massive appeal for caught behind off Bukhari, Buurman anf Bukhari both insistent he hit it. Attempted run-out as Visee drifts out of the crease and overthrows bring two byes. Sparta fuming, crowding round Visee here telling him to take a walk. Ugly business all told.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  11:45
Dosti : 30-1 (12 overs)
HCC still looking for the second, double change in the bowling as Street and Klaus take over from Overdijk and Ali Ahmed.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  11:40
HBS : 60-0 (10 overs)
Fletcher into the attack, and fairs no better against Visee than anyone else has today. Swept hard behind square for four, and another over mid off. That’s fifty for Visee in 27 balls.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  11:36
VCC 43-1 (8 overs)
Heggelman catches the misdirection bug, bowling three successive wides, and then Brenton Parchment replaces Van Troost, conceding a four off his first ball but otherwise keeping it tight. A lovely cover drive from Smit off Heggelman earns another boundary. But then Parchment gets the breakthrough as De Grooth edges the last ball of Parchment’s second over into his stumps. Noah Croes in at three.

 Quick Haag vs ACC  11:35
ACC :30-1 (6 overs)
One down at Nieuw Hanenburg, Raza the man to go.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  11:29
Dosti : 22-1 (10 overs)
First wicket of the day falls at de Diepput, Overdijk strikes in the 8th over.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  11:25
VCC : 27-0 (4 overs)
Operating from the Paddock End, Rens van Troost has started somewhat waywardly, with a wide and no ball in his first over, and repeats of both in his second. Apart from that, De Grooth drives him sweetly through extra cover for the first boundary of the morning, and then leans back to cut him in front of point for a couple. To finish a dramatic fourth over Smit skies the free hit from the no ball into the stratosphere, and it lands just millimetres inside the rope.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  11:24
HBS : 40-0 (5 overs)
Visee just doing his thing here. Hoornweg especially coming in for some tap here. Two sixes off him, one off Bukhari too, he’s on 34 already. Hosts switching to spin now, Snoep into the attack.

 Quick Haag vs ACC  11:20
ACC : 19-0 (5 overs)
Steady start for ACC on the new artificial field at Nieuw Hanenburg.

 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  11:14
HBS : 12-0 (3 overs)
Visee starts in typically aggressive style, lifting Hoornweg over the slips for the first boundary and then pulling hard through square for four more. Massive appeal on the 5th ball, Visee on the sweep looking to help the ball down leg and some sort of noise, but called wide. Didin’t sound very batty but hard to think what else it could have been. Sparta not happy. Bukhari follows it up with a maiden.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  11:04
VCC : 4-0 (1 over)
Tom Heggelman starts from the Pavilion End, bowling to Tom de Grooth. He swings the second ball to fine leg for a single, and then Matt Smit lofts a lifting delivery over the slips for a couple.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  11:04
HBS : 3-0 (1 over)
Bukhari opening the bowling for the hosts, Elkin and Visee in the middle for HBS. Just the three singles off the first. Hoornweg from the other end..


 Quick Haag vs ACC  10:54
And word filtering through from Nieuw Hanenburg is that Quick have won the toss and have opted to have a bowl.


 Dosti-United vs HCC  10:40
And over at de Diepput Tonny Staal calls correctly and opts to put Dosti in to bat.


 Voorburg CC vs Excelsior ’20  10:39
And good morning from Westvliet, which is looking great for today’s clash between two of the winning sides from last weekend. The news from the middle is that Tom de Grooth has won the toss for the home side and elected to bat.


 Sparta 1888 vs HBS Craeyenhout  10:34
HBS have the toss here, and they’ll be batting this morning.


 ☀ Weather Update ☀  10.25
The Sun’s out here at Bermweg, and all across the country we’re told. Still pretty chilly at about 11 degrees, not expected to get much above 15 either. Skies and radar look clear though at least.


 Bertus de Jong  10:22
Good morning all and welcome back to TKcricket for the second round of Topklasse matches, or at least most of them. VRA and VOC have long-grassed their fixture this week, so just the four games today. I’m here at Bremweg for Sparta 1888 vs HBS, whilst Rod’s on his way to Westvliet for VCC-Excelsior. Dosti meanwhile are down at de Diepput for their notionally home fixture against HCC, while ACC are down in the Hague too, taking on Quick at Nieuw Hanenburg. The preview for the day’s play is here for your perusing pleasure. Still a few minutes from the toss…
