Groot Drakenstein Games Club v Southern Cavaliers Cricket Club 1st XI on Thu 10 Mar 2016 at 11:00 AM
Southern Cavaliers Cricket Club Lost by 1 wicket

Match report Another gorgeous day in Cape Town, with our 3rd game on the agenda. Cavaliers, as is tradition, batted first. With a great pitch underneath, there were some promising performances with the bat, with Johan Botha batting particularly well, falling just short of a 50. Despite some solid batting, the Cavaliers could only muster 189 before being bowled out in the 37th over.
Despite the drink during the interval that was meant to ‘level the playing field’, the Cavaliers took early wickets, with some great bowling from Singh, Sheahan and Harris, and the team had the opposition on the rocks at 100 for 8. However, a superb fightback from the batsmen took the game right down to the wire, with just 3 runs required in the final over, with one wicket in hand. The final over was given to Neil Hickey, and on his very first ball, he induced a risky shot from the batsman, sending the ball high into the sky. It was the captain, Sebastian Walker, under the high ball, and with the ball swirling, he moved quickly into position and steadied himself… only to convincingly drop the ball. The Cavaliers had snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
It was an exiting ending, and the result was less important the than the great experience everyone had, and once again the opposition were very kind in hosting a braai after the game. One more game to go on Saturday before the team returns home.
