The game saw the teams draw level after both completed their 20 overs and ending up with 120 runs.
Elsies River CC won the toss and elected to bat first. Lindsay Timmet and Claude April opened the batting and started off at a decent pace. After 3.1 overs they already had 43 runs on the board. Playing with an attacking style, a wicket was soon to fall. April was first to go being bowled by Christopher Links with his score on 20. After losing their first wicket, their innings turned sour very quickly. The run rate slowed down and they continued losing wickets.
Next to go was Timmet, who was caught by the wicketkeeper Justin Rooibaadtjie, off the bowling of Eldine Goliath with his score on 24.
After losing a few more wickets, Elsies River CC soon saw themselves in trouble on 92 for seven. Chesray Collop (19*) and Darryl Gaffoor (18*) started rebuilding the innings with not too many balls to work with. At the end of their innings they helped their team reach a total of 120 for seven in 20 overs.
Charlton Adonis was the standout bowler for Atlantis CC, getting figures of two wickets and going for only three runs in his two overs.
Atlantis CC went in to bat next and were in trouble early on. They lost both Lukas Damonse (10) and captain Rodger August (0) cheaply and stood at 13 for 2 after 4.3 overs. Krisnan Oosthuizen (24) and Ashley Goliath (55) quickly got settled in and saved the Atlantis innings, scoring a 48 run partnership for the third wicket. Player of the Match, Ashley Goliath’s half century played a big role in getting Atlantis as far as taking the game to the Super Over.
Rooibaadtjie (6*) and Adonis (10*) were the players to steer the game to the draw at the end.
Atlantis CC went into the Super Over to bat first. They scored a six off the first delivery, which eased the pressure on the batsmen. After that, another four and a few more runs got them to 15 runs in their allotted over.
Elsies River only managed to get six runs of their given over.
Sadly enough, Elsies River CC will feel like fatigue was the main culprit on the day which saw them not being able to reach the 16 run target due to not being able to run as hard as they should have in the Super Over.
