Player Selections for CPL 2021
Bellville Cricket Club would like to congratulate three of our First XI players for their inclusion into the 2021 edition of the CPL( Cape Premier league).
Our very own captain Marcus Fourie was included in the Devils Peak Dragons side. Top order batsmen, Schaughn van Greunen was selected for the Atlantic Pirates - playing alongside former Bellville boys Uwe Birkenstock, Niel Botha, Fritz de Beer as well as county cricket veteran Luke Stevens. Opening bowler, Evert Carstens was selected at Outlaws playing alongside Proteas , Wayne Parnell and Christiaan Jonker.
We would also like extend our congratulations to youngster Dewald Grove who will be playing for the Outlaws u/19 side.
The concept of the CPL is similar to the IPL with a draft , auction and players being bought with fictional currency. The goal of the tournament is to create opportunities for club cricketers to play against and with provincial and international players. The tournament is scheduled to begin on the 24th of September and to conclude the 10th of October.
We wish our fellow Bellville boys all the best in their preparation and the campaign. We hope they can bring back some valuable experience and form for the upcoming season and keeping the Bellville Cricket Club name high.
On Sunday the 1st side played Claremont CC in a t20 match. We batted first and put 137/9 on the board. Cody (29) and JR (25) were the main contributors with the bat. The bowlers got into the act and restricted Claremont to 97/10. Leon with 3/4 with Marcus and Morne 2 wickets each were the main destroyers. Result: Win by 40 runs.
Our combined side took on Van Der Stel CC at home. Van Der Stel batted first. Cheslin, Courtney and Jarred gave them no chance and restricted them to 89/10. Kyle (36*) and Courtney (35*) took control and ensured a victory by 7 wickets.
Our Juniors played an in-house game on the Saturday. It seems they enjoyed the previledge to play on the A Field.
In the words of Gary Player: “The more you practice, the luckier you get"
See you all at the practices this week. Anybody wishing to join the club are welcome to attend.
Have a great week
