Cricket season slowly gets into gear in the Western Cape

By Willem Louw , in Cricket | News , at 2023-09-26

Somerset College outplayed Fairmont High for a 105-run victory over the boys from Durbanville on the Taberer Oval on Saturday.

Thando Prusent and Chad Ayford continued their good form from last weekend’s T20 action. Prusent scored 79 and Ayford got to 62 to build a solid platform for the home team.

Exceptional bowling by Callum Hughes and Christopher Varie left Fairmont 105 runs short of their mark.

Hughes conceded only 10 runs and took three wickets, and Varie got a hat-trick to dismiss the final three Fairmont batsmen.

Paarl Gimnasium proved too strong for HTS Drostdy in Paarl.

Tazreeq Moerat, who played an integral role in the success of their first-team rugby at fullback this season, led the charge with the bat, scoring 33 before he was finally run out.

It was the host’s bowling attack that set them apart though, with Douglas Smith taking four Drostdy wickets, Charles King getting another three and Moerat getting in on the action again with two wickets.

Josh Neill had a massive knock for Rondebosch Boys’ High’s Colts team against Hoërskool Bellville, scoring 122 off 80 balls as they beat the team from the northern suburbs by 119 runs.
