THE Railways Cricket Club made history when they became the first Tongaat based club to contest in the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union (KZNCU) T20 final against Amanzimtoti Cricket Club at Sahara Stadium in Durban earlier this month.

However, as a result of persistent rain on the day, the finals was washed out without a ball being bowled.

In terms of KZNCU rules, the trophy was shared between both clubs and the Tongaat team was declared joint T20 champions for 2016.

Club’s spokesperson Vishen Naidoo said: “Although it was a team effort, notable performers during the T20 campaign included the skipper, Dawood Mather, fast bowlers Trevor Pillay and Yousuf Godil and middle order batsman Asim Sheik.

“The local lads now get into gear for the KZNCU 50 over competition and hope to annex this title as well, which will mean automatic promotion to the premier league. They played uMzinto at the Maidstone Cricket ground recently and they urge the community to support the team in upcoming games,” he said.
