George Cricket Club, the SWD Twenty20 champions, had a very disappointing attempt to qualify for the Cricket South Africa Multiply T20 tournament when they were comprehensively outplayed in the qualifying matches that took place on Saturday.
George, who fielded a competitive team, was full of confidence but they lost badly against both Cape Town CC (Western Province) – by 59 runs – and Robertson CC (Boland) – by 71 runs. It was eventually the hosts of the day, Robertson, who ended the play-offs undefeated who will represent the Western Cape at this prestigious event.

CAPE TOWN CC (142/8 in 20 overs)
