First XI Cricket: The First Rankings for 2020

With six wins from six starts it is last year’s top ranked team, SACS that heads the first First XI rankings for the 2020 season although it must be stressed these are still very early days with many teams yet to join the table.

SACS have already shown that they possess a formidable side who can take on the best and come out victorious. However, the rivalry with Rondebosch who are also unbeaten will continue throughout the year and we can expect these two Cape teams to be fighting for the top spot.

Daniel Smith was unbeaten on 112 runs last week as he and Matt Levitt (57) helped chase down the total set by PBHS to record the sixth win for SACS on the trot.

Sadly, rain and poor weather had the final say on several key matches last week which denied some of the leading teams gaining a firmer footing on the rankings table.

Hilton College were forced to settle for a draw with Northwood, despite the heroics of Slade-Lee van Staden who hammered his way to 159. However, Northwood hung on for the draw with only one wicket remaining to deny Hilton the victory.

A great bowling display by Paul Roos Gym’s Jacques du Toit who delivered figures of 5/25 helped to blunt Boland Landbou’s efforts and Goedeke and Ross Klusener were in fine form with the bat for Maritzburg College as their half centuries helped in their win over Westville.

A team to look out for is Grey College who have completed three victories in a row so far this season with their latest victory over St.Stithians perhaps their finest to date.

Many teams are not on the rankings tables as they have not completed the minimum of 3 matches or have not submitted their full results yet.
