The SWD Women’s team ended their season on a high after comprehensive victories against Boland in both the limited over and Twenty/20 encounters that was played at the Recreation Ground on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
In the 50 over match Boland was restricted to 107 thanks to a disciplined bowling display by Haroline Rhodes (3/17), Miceala Andrews (2/15), Chani Damons (2/18) and Marnezelle Rabie (2/34). The home team only needed 25 overs to knock-off the target (108/4) for a 6-wicket victory. Miceala Andrews (35), Haroline Rhodes (25*) and Bianca Figeland (24*) all made useful contributions with the bat.
An excellent bowling display by Jané Winster (5/10 in 4 overs) was the highlight in their 56 runs victory in the Twenty20 clash. SWD who posted 99 (all out) dismissed the visitors for only 43. Andrews (2/5) and Marion Williams (2/14) provided valuable support.
The victories of the past weekend were the first time ever that SWD managed to defeat Boland in the Cricket SA Provincial Women’s competition since SWD’s introduction into the competition in the 2005/06 season.
