News: Hemp !!! Bermuda !!!

Well well….. what a shocker!

David Hemp is 246*, and Bermuda is 619/9!!!!

I think if there was ever a wakeup call for Netherlands about their bowling, it cannot top this……. Stelling is useless, and the 2 spinners, perhaps are too inexperienced, or maybe they just arent good enough, I have never seen the spinners, so I cannot say……… but the HPP program did not help them much……… Borren too it looks like is not that great, esp for 4 day cricket, and maybe Netherlands, with their batting lineup dont need an all rounder coming that low in the order but need a genuine wicket taker….. that said, Borren was the second or third highest wicket taker in the Hoofdklasse, so perhaps Netherlands are just helpless……..

Bermuda, for once, it was an exceptional effort……….. I dont think many were expecting that they will dominate, if that all all, in this fashion…….. Hemp shows that the 20K runs he has scored in the county were really runs, but it makes one wonder about what the hell happenned in Kenya….. if you score 246* against the Netherlands, at least you should be able to score 75+ against Kenya in 1 of the 5 innings he played over there…….. perhaps he wasnt match fit, perhaps he was rusty…..

but man oh man….. will this make the Bermudans happy!

I guess this means that Canada is through to the final of the Intercontinental cup?

    Well well..at last some good news for the Bermudans..Hemp will be a great asset for them in World Cup..I’ve seen both Seelar and Kashif..both have very good actions, but are young and don’t have the variety yet..Borren is basically a one-day bowler..and well..Stelling..havent seen him..but he doesnt seem to do much..Should be interesting to see how to one-dayers pan out.

    Take nothing away from Outerbridge, Mukuddem and Leverock either, some good efforts from them as well. Peter Cantrell’s one weakness is that he tends to pick very similar sides match after match, and I hope that innings of Bermuda’s knocked some imagination (if not common sense) into the Dutch think tank. Early on when Stelling was picked for the Netherlands, I was in favour of him getting a fair chance despite his age, but I think it’s time for his to stand aside and let a younger talent get some experience.

    Dutch spinners are not very effective…… it is due to this that I could not understand the point of playing both Seelaar and Kashif……. on top of that, neither did much in the HPP Training…… Jonkman at least was very effective in the HPP training and I think they should have given him a go, dropping one spinner……….

    With the return of Schiferli and Reekers, I cannot see Stelling playing in the first XI…….. Reekers, Schiferli, Jonkman, Borren, ten Doeschate, Kashif…… thats about all that Netherlands would need. ten Doeschate is also their prime batsman, and both Reekers and Borren are bit of all rounders………. so their batting should not be too weakened with this bowling lineup……..

    Seelar wasn’t at the HP center, which is a pity because he’s got quite a bit of talent. Jonkman should’ve got a go in this game. Its good that Van Bunge’s bowling is being developed as it might stand the Netherlands in good stead at the World Cup.

    YAWN!!!!!!!!!! u mean the dutch are that weak conceding 620 in their own turf.anyway Bermuda is a two man team (Hemp and Mukuddem).without them Bermuda is useless as seen in the kenyan series.Mukuddem is their main bowler hemp is their master batsman. thats all folks.

    Exactly!…Bermuda scoring 620 is probably the best indicator of how weak this Dutch bowling is…They don’t seem to have many good bowlers coming through in their age-group teams, which is why they are still persistent with Stelling…It would be interesting to see how Netherlands fare against Canada…

    Suji, how is South Africa Netherland’s own turf?

    I think the Netherlands have nothing to lose by bringing in Jonkman. With Schiferli back then the Netherlands bowling attack may be strengthened furthur. Henk Jan Mol might be another option. He is fairly experienced and has been in good form this season. There has to be question marks about Darron Reekers, fitness wise. He didnt look the most agile last time i saw him and now has had operations on both ankles. In the short term one option might be to look again at a number of South African and Aussie players with dutch passports who were interested in qualifying for the Netherlands. Cantrell did make it clear that he wasn’t interested but in the world cup their bowling could become an embaressing stuation.

    Kashif, Schiferli, Jonkman, ten Doeschate, Borren, De Leede……. it looks like an attack that CAN hold up…..

    I dont really think that Cantrell needs to bring in the Dutch passport holders………… it will only disappoint the players from the Hoofdklasse….. and it is not a good thing from a development perspective either……..
