In the 3rd /4th play-off between Somerset College and Paul Roos, Somerset College batted first and scored 122 for 9 and Alex Venter scored 34. Paul Roos easily passed the Somerset College total with only 4 wickets down, so College lost by 6 wickets.

In the final, the two Cape Town sides faced off. Rondebosch batted first and scored 140 for 7. SACS were then bowled out for 87.

Rondebosch were crowned the Somerset College T20 Champions for 2018!

Thank you to all the Somerset College parents who gave up their time to help with making burgers, bacon and egg rolls and selling of cold drinks. Mrs Cathy Raggett co-ordinated the efforts of the parents with help from Vanessa Whaits and the team Captains’ Moms.

Once again, albeit under immense pressure from the drought conditions, the facilities and kitchen staff’s organisation of the fields and set up of all the facilities was superb. The Cricket Club would like to thank all involved.
