Twelve (12) township cricket clubs from around the cape region participated in this T20 tournament where the winner gets to win a sheep. KCC had a superb run in the tournament, they bowled out all their opponents below fifty (50) the highest target being 47 runs by Nyanga CC in the final.
The tournament is modelled on the historical Amacal’ eGusha (meaning “half sheep”) Cricket Tournament that has been taking place in the Eastern Cape for decades.
Although it has been running for just five consecutive years in Cape Town, attracting sponsorship for this tournament remains a challenge. “It is healthy for our townships to hosts tournaments like these and in a long run we at Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA) would like to reward the winners with more than just the traditional sheep in the future”, WPCA Development Cricket Coordinator Ezra Cagwe commented.
“This tournament that has become an annual event is crucial for not only to identify potential talent but ensuring that we also respect historical items that have relevance to our township communities. It once again proved to be well received and successful,” added WPCA General Manager Nabeal Dien.
