Dream start for SWD in limited overs series

It was a hard fought and nail-biting contest but a great team effort enable SWD to recorded a 9 runs victory in their opening match in the CSA Limited over competition that was played against Boland in Paarl.

Obus Pienaar (68 ; 81 balls, 1×6, 4×4) and Brendon Louw (54; 86 balls, 1×6. 1×4) were involved in an important partnership of 66 runs for the 5th wicket to enable SWD to post 211/8 in their allotted 50 overs.

Boland was in a strong position at 131/2 (in the 28th over) thanks to half-centuries by Simon Khomari (70 from 95 balls; 6×4; 1×6) and Hanno Kotze (52 from 67 balls; 5×4; 1×6) but a great fightback with Marcello Piedt (4/45 in 10 overs), debutant Stefan Tait (4/42 in overs) and Neil Hornbuckle (1/22 in 8 overs) ensured a nail-biting  9 runs victory for SWD when they dismissed Boland for 202 (after 46 overs).

The summarised score card is:

SWD 211/8  (Obus Pienaar 68, Brendon Louw 54, Kyle Simmonds 2/20, Charl Cyster 2/39)
