RAM SLAM T20 Challenge: ABD powers Titans to thumping 13 over win

AB de Villiers led a stunning batting display and Tabraiz Shamsi an excellent bowling performance as the Multiply Titans extended their unbeaten start to the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge season with a thumping 56-run bonus-point win over the Warriors in a rain-hit clash in Benoni on Friday.

RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Preview: Hollywoodbets Dolphins v WSB Cape Cobras

Hollywoodbets Dolphins coach Grant Morgan believes there is no point complaining about the weather as they prepare to welcome the WSB Cape Cobras to Durban for their RAM SLAM T20 Challenge encounter at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Friday.

Even though it is the sixth match for the hosts, they have only played two games so far because of the rain that has followed them almost everywhere they have played. 


RAM SLAM T20 Challenge: Multiply Titans v Warriors

Multiply Titans coach Mark Boucher is adamant that his side has not lost any of the momentum or intensity they so impressively built at the start of the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge ahead of their clash with the Warriors at Sahara Park Willowmoore in Benoni on Friday.

The reigning champions last played a game on November 19 when they overcame the WSB Cape Cobras for a fourth win in succession. But in the fast-paced and tightly-scheduled competition, they had a match against the Hollywoodbets Dolphins washed out last Friday followed by another weather-hit game that saw no action against the bizhub Highveld Lions in midweek.

The clash is one of two big ones on a busy weekend for the hosts, who also take on the runaway leaders, the Multiply Titans, in the first game of a double-header weekend at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
