After winning the toss and electing to bat first, DCC had a dismal start of their innings when they lost their first wicket in the first over to Charl Willoughby who dismissed Kuda Samunderu. At one stage DCC were 55 for six in 22 overs. Bob Homani came in for the northern suburbs team and patiently made his way to his half century off eighty balls to take his team score over the 100 mark before he was dismissed for 59 runs ten overs later.
Ryan Milne did the job with the ball for RCC. He finished with three wickets for 28 in ten overs and was assisted by his two partners in crime, Charl Willoughby and Alistair Gray who finished with 2/14 in 10 overs and 2/33 in 10 overs apiece to dismiss DCC all out for 145 runs in 48.5 overs.
After losing the opening pair in the first eight overs, Andrew Puttick and Travis Townsend seemed settled at the crease for RCC until DCC’s Vice Captain, Mark De Stadler was brought to the attack. De Stadler came in and rocked the middle and lower order to finish with 4 for 23 in eight overs. Johan Bothma and Morne Heyneke took two and three wickets apiece to help bowl RCC all out for 119 in 38 overs.
The Player of the Match Award went to Mark De Stadler.
