WDCU - Week 2 Round Up
Haq, Berrington and De Lange might all be arguably better known for their collective slow bowling but with the bat they are also a force to be reckoned with.
149 runs between them for Clydesdale ensured the unbeaten start ot the season continued and De Lange even chipped in with 4 wickets as East Kilbride came up well short, by 127 runs, at Titwood on Saturday.
Dumfries added to Drumpellier’s woes despite Sabri and Ramzam reducing them to 66 for 6 at one point!
Dawson and Lojszczyk saw the home side to 157 all out and that was plenty as Drumpellier were blown away by Pat Druce's 5 wicket haul and had Abdul Sabri to thank for even reaching a disappointing 68.
There was a hugely exciting finish at King George V Park in Renfrew as the home side desperately tried to defend 217. They did, kind of, as Ayr finished on 217 for 9 off the last ball and completed the first tie of the season, both teams picking up 8 points for their endeavours.
Champions Uddingston enjoyed the pitch at Hamilton Crescent and set West 212 to win and the home side's notoriously brittle batting line up never came close as they subsided for just 110.
Zimbabwean Professional Keith Dabengwa notched the first century of the Western Union season as he led Ferguslie to 221 for 9 against Prestwick for whom Fraser MacDonald picked up 5 wickets. He then took 4 wickets as Prestwick were dismissed for just 144.
Poloc continued their fine form by succeeding in an impressive chase of 227 at Williamfield against Stirling County.
Stenhousemuir were also impressive in bowling out Greenock for just 91 at Glenpark and didn't take their foot of the gas as they strolled to an 8 wicket victory.
At Whitehaugh, Kelburne continued their dominance over Weirs with a crushing 217 runs victory.
Hussain, Wylie and O’Connell all scored well as Kelburne totalled 280 for 8 and Weirs were rolled over easily again for 63 with only Akram and McCaig making it to double figures.
