19 Dec WESTERN PROVINCE VICTORIUS AS KHAYA MAJOLA WEEK CONCLUDES IN STELLENBOSCH
STELLENBOSCH: Western Province claimed a 146-run victory against KwaZulu-Natal Inland in the main match of the 2022 CSA Khaya Majola Week at the Coetzenburg Oval on Sunday.
The Cape Town based-side had slumped to 50/4 in 15 overs but Bongile Mfunelwa (66) and Juan James (38) anchored the innings to add 86 runs for the fifth wicket to help the team set a respectable total of 218 runs
KZN Inland was bundled out for only 72 runs, with Jake Carstens adding 15 runs with the bat to his 3/28 figures.
Asakhe Tsaka (4/19) and Liyema Waqu (2/14) did the most damage with the ball in hand for Western Province.
The last day of the tournament also saw three players produce five-wicket hauls.
Border’s spin bowler Amangile Twani removed five of Limpopo’s batsmen from the crease for a mere 14 runs as the latter was restricted to only 96 runs.
The Namibian Cheetahs’ right-arm unorthodox spin bowler, Gerhard Janse van Rensburg (5/29), helped his side to a 31-run victory over Mpumalanga.
Free State left their best performance for the final day of the tournament. Their spin bowler Dakalo Leketa (5/33) probably booked his place in the SA Colts side thanks to his five-wicket haul in their 78-run victory over North West.
Free State batted first and Gerhard Maree (87) and Samokelo Lepheto (66) helped their side to reach 252 runs thanks to their half-centuries. Last year’s SA Colts captain, Joe Meyer (45), also weighed in with more than valuable contribution.
Lions also managed to finish the tournament with a victory as they convincingly defeated the Titans by seven wickets. Christopher King removed four of the Titans’ batsmen for only 25 as they were restricted to 141 runs.
Lions’ Thebe Gazide (40) and David Teeger (39) then laid the base for their team to ease past the target set.
The highest score of the final day was recorded by Easterns’ Khayelihle Sithole (97) who just missed out on his century against the Northern Cape. Easterns’ victory of 29 runs ended Northern Cape’s unbeaten record at this year’s tournament.
