Voorburg CC has won the first tournament for the Ponting Wines T20 Cup. The host of the event first defeated Quick in the cold and then defeated reigning 50-country champion HCC. Michael Levitt was on a roll with good scores in both this tournament and in the exhibition games. The South African acquisition of VCC remained unbeaten in the final with 43 runs.
In the morning, VCC first had Quick on the program. In the 120 balls available, VCC put up a total of 157 runs, thanks to Levitt (57) and the young Nirav Kulkarni (40). Quick never threatened the high Voorburg score. Viv Kingma (1 wicket for two runs), Shariz Ahmad (2 for 11) and especially Mees van Vliet (3-20), who came over from ACC, threw Quick all out for only 78 runs. Young wicketkeeper Cedric de Lange took two catches.
In the final, VCC also had no problem with HCC. Due to circumstances, this match was shortened to only ten overs, so sixty balls. HCC made 77 runs (Van Vliet 2-9) and that was nowhere near enough to make the VCC difficult. Already in the seventh over, the Voorburgers knew that the Ponting Wines Cup was theirs.
In 2014, VCC started with a T20 tournament for the four Top and Hoofdklasse teams from The Hague. Since that year, several organizations and companies have sponsored the event. Ponting Wines is named after former Australia cricket team captain Ricky Ponting. The living legend (now 48 years old) made 13,378 Test runs in his career and 13,704 runs in one-day matches.
