It is all smooth sailing in the Coca Cola Khaya Majola Week

By FOCUS REPORTER

THE return of summer weather to the Western Cape saw the batsmen take control of the second day of the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola week in Cape Town today.

The total runs for all teams were far higher than on day one and the number of batsmen to make big scores increased dramatically, including the week’s first century, a superb 101 not out by Northerns’ Murray Coetzee against Free State.

Murray faced 189 balls and struck 10 fours and one six to steer his side to a comfortable win. His performance will have impressed the SA Schools selectors who will be announcing a National schools team at the end of the tournament, while his team will have staked an early claim for a place in the main game of the tournament next Wednesday (20 December).

There were a number of half centuries scored on day two, including 96 by Jurie Snyman of Easterns; 74 by Tiaan Koekemoer for Limpopo and 66 by Gideon Conradie for Boland. The others came from Heinrich Roberts (Free State); Gerhard Lotter (Namibia); Prenelan Subrayen (KwaZulu-Natal) and Jason Shield (KwaZulu-Natal Inland).

The bowlers were very much on the receiving end of the hitting onslaught, but there were some good figures. The best were from KwaZulu-Natal’s Kyle Simmonds who took 6 wickets for 27 runs against Gauteng. Diego Rosier of Griquas took 4 wickets for 13 runs against Northwest, and Marcello Piedt managed to take 4 wickets for 48 runs for SWD against Mpumalanga.
