Interesting facts about the match were:
- Jerome Peskin scoring the run, which was an edge through the slips.
- All 3 batsman caught were by the wicket keeper.
- Nine wickets fell for 0 runs.
- 18 year old Ebrahim Cooper took 6 wickets for 0 runs.
- It took just 8.2 overs to bowl Wynberg out.
- Only 1 run scored in 8.2 overs.
- There was nothing wrong with the pitch if Melchester scored 189!
- I. Van Rensburg (Jnr) & Yasieed Daniels went on to play 1st division cricket. Yazeed is still playing 1st team.
- J. Peskin, J. Dewitt went on to play 2nd team cricket.
- A. Daniels, T. Conlan. S. Garriez, C. Van Eyssen & C. Winn retired from cricket after this season.
- G. Singh continued to play for the 4th team, but has never scored a 50, his best being 41*.
- J. Manuel was the only player to continue with major success as a bowler, but as a usual number 11 batsman one wonders what the hell he was doing batting at number 5 here!
Calvin Van Eyssen was the only player not out on 0. This was a bit flattering for this player as he was noticeably our worst ever player in the history of Wynberg Cricket Club!
