The SWD senior team suffered their third consecutive defeat in the Cricket South Africa Provincial competition when they lost by 8 wickets against Northern Cape in a match that was played at the Recreation Ground the past weekend. 

Murray Commins

SWD, who again failed to earn any batting bonus points, are now at the bottom position of Pool A at 47.46 points with three matches remaining.

Putting in to bat first SWD was dismissed for a modest 132 with only Murray Commins (40; 101 balls, 5×4) that made any impression.  Warren Bell (4/43) was the visitor’s outstanding bowler.  In their first innings, Northern Cape thanks to a century by Gerrie Snyman (133; 234 balls, 12×4) posted 265 for a lead of 133 runs.  Glenton Stuurman (3/35) and Nkululeko Serami (3/49) both bagged three wickets.

In their second innings it was Commins (78; 112 balls, 9×4) who again made a fine contribution and together with Brendon Louw (67; 175 balls, 7×4) enabled SWD to reached 251 (all out).  Northern Cape comfortably reached the winning target (119/2) before tea on the final day with 8 wickets in hand.

The limited over match that was scheduled for Sunday was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.
