SA5 AGAINST ROODEPOORT CITY
It was a first class performance from the first team as they notched up the first victory of the season.
Having loss the toss the top order for once performed admirably, albeit against 8, with all batsman getting in on a somewhat difficult wicket. Farhad top-scored with a man of the match 53 off just 44 balls.
275 the total in 40 overs.
The bowling department was superb!
New ball pairing Aadil and Safwaan after giving the wickie some work to do got the ball to talk, and removed the top four cheaply, and the match all but sealed.
The old man and the tall one wagged their tails a bit, the tennis pro entered the fray with some classic 5 iron hooks, all in vain as Roodepoort City were dismissed for 77- in time for the 5 o' clock show!
Chirp of the week:
Naushaad for his line when chirps were flying around to the tennis dude, the classic ' Quiet Please' !!!!!
Highlight of the week
Farhad and Kadwa third wicket stand of 94 runs.
Man of the Match
For a sterling batting performance, Farhad Essop (53 off 44 balls) and one wicket.
Next fixture against Randburg, the boys enter the match quietly confident.
