RAM SLAM T20 Challenge: Cobras inflict first loss on Titans

The Multiply Titans were finally brought back down to earth in the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge after Ferisco Adams and George Linde held their nerve to help the WSB Cape Cobras secure a vital three-wicket win in front of a sizeable Cape Town crowd on Friday.

The pair shared a vital 26-run unbroken stand that came from 2.2 overs as the hosts chased down their 133-run victory target with three deliveries to spare and in the process secured themselves a place in the semi-finals next week. 


England U19s make it two out of two vs SA in spite of Breetzke century

England’s under-19 team are two for two against the Coca-Cola South Africa U19s after cantering to an eight-wicket win despite Matthew Breetzke scoring the only century of the day in a match that was the second-last clash of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) Youth One-Day International Triangular Series at Senwes Park on Thursday. The teams will meet again this Sunday, 10 December for the tournament final at the same venue.

Two hundred-run partnerships between Tom Banton (74 off 80 balls) and Liam Banks (37 off 61) for the first wicket and between Harry Brook (63* off 53) and Will Jacks (71* off 53) for the third, ensured the visitors’ success after being set a 249-run target by the hosts, who won the toss and elected to bat first.

India captain Virat Kohli has moved up three places to grab second position among batsmen in the ICC Test Player Rankings, after registering his career-best score in the third and final Test against Sri Lanka, which ended in a draw in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Kohli’s first-innings knock of 243 was followed with 50 as he finished with 610 runs in the series, which India won 1-0. Kohli, who slammed back-to-back double-centuries and recorded three-figure scores in three consecutive matches, started the series in sixth position but has leapfrogged David Warner, Cheteshwar Pujara, Kane Williamson and Joe Root after the stupendous run which saw him average 152.50.


RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Preview: Stakes are high for Lions and Warriors

bizhub Highveld Lions coach Geoffrey Toyana is wary of the desperate Warriors ahead of their RAM SLAM T20 Challenge showdown at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Friday.

It is knockout time already for the Eastern Cape franchise when they travel upcountry with defeat to the hosts a non-option as it will almost certainly end their interest in the competition.


RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Preview: Cape Cobras v Multiply Titans
