Boundaries, skilful bowling, and great entertainment can be expected with the return of the Res cricket league. Res
cricket is back in action this year after being on hold for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The league starts on 9 October. All the league matches will be played on Saturdays (9, 16, and 23 October) including the semi-finals on 30 October. These matches will be played on the UP B, C, and D fields on Hillcrest campus (next to the hockey fields). The league will consist of three groups. The following teams will play in their respective groups:
Dregeana, House Tau, EBIT
Blossoms Delight, OP Village, Tuks Ekhaya
House Mopane, College, Theology and Religion
Three games were covered that happened on 16 October. EBIT and Dregeana played out a 133 run draw. Mopane were victorious against College by securing 135 runs, while Ekhaya claimed a win against OP Village with 134 runs. The league will be played in T20 format which means a lot of sixes can be expected. Let’s go out and support our teams in what looks set to be a great semi-final!
