On a very Breezy Saturday in Germiston Captain Rashaadie won the toss and chose to bowl on a green wicket which looked like it would help the bowlers. Mayur Bhai Opened his packet of Manakchand from the first over and he bowled 8 overs on the trot to take 4 wickets for 11 runs. This great spell of chucking really put our opposition in some trouble and the rest of the bowlers chipped in to bowl them out for 141 in 33 overs. An inspiring performance from the entire team in the field really lifted the teams spirits and an indication of things to come.
The SA7 opening Partnership of Hazrat Joe "Amla" Chothia & Maroef "Mamoo" Laher set a great foundation of 55 runs in 10 overs before Hazrat Joe was decieved by a slower ball and dismissed for 41. Mamoo lost his wicket shortly thereafter and Captain Rashaad although seeing the ball very well lost his wicket to a mistimed shot. Muhajir "Broekies" Rawat and Nasief Seedat then took the game by the horns and steered the team to within 10 runs of victory before Muhajir was caught in the deep trying to clear the fielder at short leg.
Avi "Careless" although he would love to be call Kallis then joined Nasief to finish the game off and the SA7 side won the game by a convincing 6 wickets in the 31st over.
Mayur Bhai "Manakchand" Patel was voted Man of the match for his break bowling spell.
