The SWD u/19’s recorded an emphatic 9 wicket victory against Border in a CSA U/19 Three Day competition match that was played in East London the past weekend. After a disappointing performance against WesternProvince the previous week the Southern Cape youngsters bounced back and laid the foundation with a solid batting performance.

SWD, who were put in to bat, started off well with a partnership of 88 runs for the first wicket between Lornell Spies (45) and Luther van der Horst (50). It was however a great captain’s knock by Ruan Stander (133 from 132 deliveries – 23×4’s) which provided the much needed momentum to enable the visitors to post 397/6 (declared). Stander and Jean Heunis (47) shared a partnership of 107 runs for the third wicket whilst Chris Marrow (51) and Thomas Marrow (37) also made a valuable contribution with a partnership of 80 runs for the 6th wicket.

Border were dismissed for 233 runs in their first innings with Josh Peters (3/64), Richard Maree (2.53) and Lance Roelfse (4/40) the pick of the bowlers. In their follow-on innings they managed to score 182 setting SWD a modest target of 18 runs. Peters (3/46), Maree (2/55) and Arno Moolman (2/22) were the successful bowlers in the Border follow-on innings.

SWDCB FIXTURES FOR THE WEEKEND

The SWD Cricket Board league fixtures will continue this weekend and all eyes will be on the match that will be played the Bridgton Sports Ground in Oudtshoorn on Saturday where the defending champions, Union Stars, will take on MosselBay. George will be the favorites when they take on Pacaltsdorp at Rooirivier-rift whilst Sussex will be keen to improve on disappointing performance of the past weekend when they lock horns with Harlequins Forces at D’Almeida. The winner of the match between Pirates and Ramblers will certainly be a step away from potential relegation.

In the CSA Women’s Competition SWD will host Border (on Saturday) and EasternProvince (on Sunday). The SWD ladies will be keen to improve on their recent disappointing performances when they lost badly against WesternProvince and Boland respectively. Both matches will be played at the REC Ground in Oudtshoorn.

LEAGUE FIXTURES

With the SWDCB Premier League semi finals that will be contested on February, 16th 2012 the top four teams have already been confirmed.
