After a weekend where rain and bad light affected SWD’s ambition to get on the winning track they will be headed to Cape Town where they will take on Western Province at Newlands. The three-day match will start on Thursday whilst the limited over match will be contested on Sunday.
Their campaign for the 2019/20 season has now reached the half-way stage and in both the three- and one-day competition the men from the Southern Cape are out of the running to claim a trophy. In the three-day format they are winless with three defeats and two draws and in the limited over competition they won one match, lost three and one match (against Eastern Province) was a no result due to rain. There will however be a lot a stake for the remaining ten matches.
SWD will field an unchanged team for the three-day match from the one that drew with Eastern Province the past weekend.
The SWD team for the three-day match is:
Kirwin Christoffels (captain), Jean du Plessis (captain), Richardt Frenz, Brendon Louw, Jhedli van Briesies, Neil Hornbuckle, Bailey Aarons, Tsepo Ndwandwa, Renaldo Meyer, Bailey Aarons and Stefan Tait. Yamkela Oliphant and Herchell America will be added to the one-day team.
