Come watch superstars at Oval

2009-04-22 00:00

THE big question in today’s 4 pm Twenty20 Maritzburg Oval match between KZN Inland and Mumbai Indians is whether the local side can outhit their more illustrious opponents.

There was no information made available as to whether Mumbai Indians’ superstars like batting wizard Sachin Tendulkar and SA’s effortlessly stylish JP Duminy will be included in mentor Shaun Pollock’s capital city line-up, but this Indian Premier League side is one of substance and class, whoever dons their IPL pyjamas.

A team list that also includes Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, (both India) Sanath Jayasuriya, Dilhara Fernando (both Sri Lanka), Dwayne Bravo (West Indies) and South African Ryan McLaren is formidable in any language, shape or form — and the Inland mainstays will have their hands full.

That said, Inland love nothing more than a challenge, so you can never entirely discount the homeboys springing a stunning upset. See you at the cricket!

Start: 4 pm today. Tickets: R10 adults, R5 scholars.

Big no-nos: Bringing alcohol on to the premises. Big plus: The Oval Tavern and Tuckshop. Bonus: Bring along your braai.
