It was the turn of the young guns in the Dutch league to show their class after the old hands had taken centre stage on the opening week.

17 year-old Vikram Singh - already capped at senior level was the day's top scorer, making 99 before being agonisingly run out n the final over attempting the run which would have taken him to his century.

Singh propelled VRA to 276 for 8, with fellow international Ben Cooper making 48. Leon Turmaine followed up an enterprising 36 with four wickets as HBS were dismissed for 193.

Philippe Boissevain (pictured below) and Bas de Leede scored half centuries as Voorburg chased down ACC's 196 to win by four wickets.

19 year-old Boissevain hit an unbeaten 65 which included 6 fours and a six, while De Leede's 56 came at exactly a run-a-ball.

The ACC top scorer was another teenager, Shreyas Potdar top scoring with an unbeaten 62 as he and Ramesh Babu (56) shared a sixth wicket stand of 84, rescuing their side from a precarious 55 for 5 - Stef Mulder claiming a five-wicket haul.

Runs were very much at a premium in the HCC versus Dosti clash. HCC were skittled for just 80 with South African Touseef Ahmed claiming a six wicket haul.

Dosti though found conditions equally as tough, bundled out for just 50 with Oli Klaus continuing his early season form taking four scalps and Hidde Overdijk three in the 30-run win.

That wasn't the lowest total of the day though as VOC were bundled out for a measly 46. Joost Snoep (3-7), Nasratullah Ibrahimkil (3-5) and Manminder Singh (2-1) doing the damage. The 'target' was achieved inside 44 balls by Sparta, winning by seven wickets.

It was a much tighter contest between Excelsior'20 and Punjab Rotterdam.

A half century from Jamaican veteran left-hander Lorenzo Ingram helped Excelsior to 186 - three wickets apiece for Tariq and Hussain.

Stephan Myburgh clubbed 34 from 24 balls (3 fours, 3 sixes) to get the reply off to a flier, and despite a Niels Etman induced wobble, contrasting half centuries from Rehmat Zulfiqar and Anil Nidamanuru saw then to a five wicket win.

25 year-old Nidamanuru - now plying his trade with Auckland in New Zealand - cleared the ropes five times in a hard-hit undefeated 56 from just 41 balls. A man in a hurry!

If the league follows the pattern of the opening two weeks it will be the turn of the middle-aged next week!
