CSA Congratulates 4-Day Series Champions

JOHANNESBURG: Cricket South Africa (CSA) has congratulated the DP World Lions and Northern Cape Heat, who were crowned champions of the 2023/24 CSA 4-Day Series in their respective divisions.

The Lions were crowned Division 1 champions after a 99-run victory in a testing five-day final against World Sports Betting Western Province at the DP World Wanderers on Sunday.

Delano Potgieter’s stellar performance, which earned him a player of the match accolade, was instrumental in the Lions success.
