Franchise cricket comes to Oudtshoorn again

South Western Districts will again host the Cape Cobras in a Sunfoil Cup Four-Day match this season.

The Cobras will take on the Hollywood Bets Dolphins at the Recreation Ground from 5 to 8 October.

Cricket South Africa recently confirmed the Sunfoil Four-day competition fixtures for the upcoming 2017/18 season.  

In January this year, SWD made history when they hosted their first franchise fixture when the Cobras and the Lions were involved in a thriller as the Cobras won the 4-day match with twelve balls left on the final day.

The SWD administration will, however, be very keen to secure either a Momentum Cup One Day match or a Twenty20 franchise match for the upcoming season. 

A match of that nature will be a real crowd puller at the Recreation Ground.

SWD will also, for the first time since 2006 host the Momentum u/13 National Week over the period 11-15 December 2017.
