THE NMMU-Madibaz premier league cricket team set themselves up for another good season when they won the T20 Mayoral Cup title against Old Grey recently.

Led by Coach Corbyn Dolley, the Mecer-Madibaz are aiming to retain the Nelson Mandela Bay premier league title as well as targeting a strong performance in the University Sport South Africa (USSA) week.

At the start of the season, the Madibaz players formed the bulk of the Eastern Province side which took the title in the Africa Cup T20 competition.

Dolley described that triumph as a “monumental effort” and said the region could not have asked for a better start to the season.

“It’s been a while since EP or the Warriors have managed to win a trophy in a national competition so it speaks volumes for the group of cricketers who were part of that squad,” he said.The Madibaz confirmed their potential against Old Grey in the T20 final when they dismissed their opponents for 98, with Brad Haller, Stefan Tait and Odwa Xonxa taking two wickets each.

Vian Maritz (24) and Lloyd Brown (36 not out) then shrugged off the loss of an early wicket to ensure a comfortable win for the students.
