2020-01-28 06:00

The latest round of fixtures in the Western Province Club Cricket Association’s Premier League competition produced unusual drama with two games ending in a tie.

This is the first time this has happened in this division since unification.

In the game between Cape Town Cricket Club (CTCC) and Durbanville, both sides scored 172, whilst in a low scoring game Western Province Cricket Club (WPCC) and UWC, both sides mustered 125.

Meanwhile, in the first division A, newcomers Rylands enhanced their chances of promotion with a bonus-point win over Edgemead.

For Rylands, all-rounder Faheem Bedford made a useful contribution with the bat (36) and ball (3/18). While Ottomans, United and Primrose suffered defeats at the hands of Green Point, Notherns Goodwood, and Milnerton respectively.
