Faiek Davids, Western Province coach said, “A lot of hard work went into the competition and it all paid off on Saturday. It was very close, as we had to keep one eye on the North West game, as they were in second place.”
He further explained that the team was six points ahead of NW on the log, going into the final round of fixtures. Both teams had to get a victory in order for them to be contenders to end top, but NW’s match ended as a draw which meant that WP had to only grab the win to make sure of a top of the log finish.
Ismail Behardien, Convenor of the Western Province Amateur Selection Panel was also full of praise for the team with their recent success.
“It is indeed heartwarming for us as the selection panel to have been part of this winning team. The season had its different challenges, but despite those difficulties we embraced the challenge which our General Manager, Mr Nabeal Dien put to us when we announced the squad at the beginning of the season. The mandate was nothing less than the trophy. Once again congratulations to our winning squad and coaching staff and all involved at WPCA,” he said.
Mr Nabeal Dien, General Manager at Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA) said,” I am ecstatic that the coach, convenor, selectors and all that supported this team took seriously the mandate of delivering a trophy. When we deliver trophies, we normally also deliver players and this was the case this season. Congratulations to our squad of players and coaches. They have made us all proud.”
