The 1st XI now travel to Potchefstroom for the National Finals this coming weekend, where they will face off against the winners of the other five cricket franchise regions. This is a fantastic achievement and is reward for all of the hard work put in by the players, especially over the last week, where every player made contributions with bat, ball, and in the field. The players showed a great deal of intensity and maturity, especially in the victories over Brandwag and St Andrew’s, and also in recovering from 25 for 5 to go on and win the final. More of the same will be needed for the first game of the finals, against Nelspruit on Friday morning.
