Ghana finish World T20 Africa Qualifier A in style

Ghana finished off a wonderful week at the ICC World T20 Africa Qualifier A tournament on Saturday, as they defeated Nigeria by four wickets in the last match at the Tafawa Balewa Square Cricket Oval in Lagos.

The Ghanaians who had defeated the hosts in a last-over thriller days ago, won a lot more comfortably on Saturday, to finish as the only undefeated side in the competition. As a contest, the match was doomed after just one ball of the match, after Ghana had won the toss and elected to field.

Nigeria made a perfect start to the ICC World T20 Africa Qualifier A, as they cruised past Sierra Leone by 88 runs, at the Tafawa Balewa Square Cricket Oval in Lagos on Saturday.

Philander bowls South Africa to 3-1 series triumph

Vernon Philander needed just three overs to complete the double of 200 career Test wickets and 50 wickets against Australia before completing a quick-fire demolition with career-best figures of 6/21 on the final morning of the fourth Sunfoil Test match at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Tuesday.

South Africa squeeze out 400 run lead against Australia

South Africa had to overcome stubborn Australian resistance as they ground out a 400-run overall lead on the third day of the final Sunfoil Test match at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Sunday.

The Proteas first ran into opposition from the overnight batting pair, captain Tim Paine and Pat Cummins, who put on 99 for the seventh wicket before the last three wickets fell relatively quickly to give the home side a huge lead of 267 runs on the first innings. Remarkably, this one major partnership was Australia’s biggest of the entire series.

Bavuma sets up excellent day for Proteas against Australia

Temba Bavuma led the way as the Standard Bank Proteas produced the near-perfect performance on day two of the final Sunfoil Test match against Australia at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Saturday. The day could be summed up in statistics as the Proteas scored 175 runs while losing their last four first innings wicket and then Australia crashed to 110/6 by the close.

The only disappointment for the Proteas was the fact that Bavuma ran out of partners after reaching 95 (194 balls, 13 fours) when he so richly deserved to go on to his second career century and his first against Australia.
