On Saturday our 1st XI played their last league game of the season against St Pats Town 2nd XI. St Pats would probably have been pretty satisfied with their total of 318 from 50 overs. Unfortunately for St Pats Town they then came up against opening batters – Matthew Nel and Raash Mukherjee who decided they would get that total all by themselves! Raash survived being bowled off a no ball to score 110 not out and Matthew scored what we believe to be the 3rd best score in Newlands history of 171 not out. The next highest scores of 180 and 206 were scored way back in 1992 & 1990 respectively.
Congrats to Matthew and Raash
