The College 1st XI enjoyed a fantastic cricket experience hosted by Cricket SA in Stellenbosch over the weekend. The team kept their chances alive of making the final right up to their last fixture.
Their bowlers led from the front and were backed up with great determination in the field. This along with impressive captaincy from Anthony Dakin resulted in three man of the match awards, the leading wicket taker and the most economical bowlers in the tournament. The batsman will have learnt a great deal from playing on turning pitches, a first time experience which will hold them in good stead for the future.
