BCA 50 OVERS – Summary & Results 5th Game

March 13, 2017

Greetings!

BCA 50 OVERS NATIONAL LEAGUE  

The fourth encounter of the BCA National 50 Overs League Fixture on March 12th, 2017 was between Tladi & Southern Rocks, which was played on the A Field at the BCA Oval, with a 15 minute delayed start.

The commitment and discipline shown by Southern Rocks are also commended, as has been the case in all previous years. This game would also have an impact on the log standings, as a victory by Southern Rocks would place them in a more firm position to finish 2nd, depending on the outcome of the last game between Ditlhase & Shining Stars.

However, it was not to be, as Tladi had other plans to cement their top spot.

Tladi batted first with clear intentions to post a large total but were given no room early on, as the Southern Rocks bowlers had ideas of their own. The Tladi innings were shaky and rocky on 97 for 5 at one stage and looked like it was heading towards a disaster. However, James Moses and Nabil Master took charge and responsibly batted their team out of the “pothole” and when Moses was dismissed, Master was very dynamically supported by Thatayaone Tshose. Nabil Master scored his maiden century and that of the tournament and Tlaid finished on 306 for the loss of 7 wickets.

It was an uphill task for Southern Rocks, and apart from some determination by Captain Imran Pathan, all other batsmen succumbed to some wily spin bowling from Mmoloki Mooketsi and Dhruv Maisuria, eventually losing by 233 runs.
