As the clouds lifted over Joburg and the sun shone down on Saturday, the SA7 team where ready to take the field again.
The wicket at the Marlboro Cricket Grounds (MCG) was green like a mamba and it looked like we were in for a good day of cricket.
Captain Safu lost the toss and the SA7 team were put in to bat. After a Lively start from Jaydeep with Avi on the other end rotating the strike, it looked like we might go on to set a formidable total to defend, however it was not to be and the remaining batsmen made heavy weather of the bowling.
Being set a minimal total to defend, the bowlers set about the task of trying to unsettle the opposition. Some consistent and accurate bowling gave the team some hope but the score set was not very defendable.
Some serious discussions took place after the game and all players agreed that we need to step on the gas and get back to winning ways.
Yours behind the Stumps,
