If you haven’t heard who won the MTN8 final this past weekend which cave do you live in, Sterkfontein Caves? If you are Pirates support well we forgive you, we know you don’t want to remember. The match was a sold out event held at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, it was between Chiefs and Pirates an MTN8 Derby final kao jwetsa (to be precise). Bucs wore red (I guess it meant red for danger) and Chiefs where in their traditional gold and black. From the minute the whistle was blown Amakhosi attacked Bucs like a bull seeing red, which made one wonder “we Mabhaka bhaka kwenze njani”. All that attack resulted in a 1-0 victory for Chiefs. The goal resulted from a set piece which Mashamaite capitalized on with a header, it was more of a nod than a header, a nod of acknowledgement that meant “yes we are the champions”. Well done Makhoooooosi!
Our Bulls are still nursing wounds after getting bitten by Sharks. They were beaten 26-15 on Saturday, whatever happened to our Bulls, but ithemba a li bulali (faith doesn’t kill). They are now lying 6th on the log with 14 points after 7 matches, while Western Province leads the log. Next match for the Bulls will be against Free State Cheetahs on 26th September (Friday), let’s hope they’ll get back to their bullish tendencies. The Boks will be playing against the Wallabies (Australia) on 27th September (Saturday), lets rally behind Heyneke Meyers’ boys.
The Champions League T20 is continuing and as you know South Africa is represented by the Sunfoil Dolphins and the Cape Cobras. Match 3 saw the Cobras paired against Northern Nights (New Zealand), the Nights made 206-5 after 20 overs while the Cobras made 44-2 after 7.2 overs as the match was rained out and the Nights won by 33 runs (D/L Method). As you must know cricket is a gentle man’s sport when it rains the match stops no need to get yourself dirty *hehe*. Rain robbed our boys but next time neh. Match 4 the Dolphins were up against Perth Scorchers (Australia), a tight encounter which anyone could’ve won but our Dolphins were on the losing end as they lost by 1 run. Dolphins made 164-7 while the Scorchers made 165-4, unlucky indeed. The misfortunes continued on Match 6 where the Cobras made 184-6 and Horbart Hurricanes (Australia) made 186-4 losing by 2 runs.
Match 8 will be played on 22nd September (Monday) between the Dolphins and the Chennai Super Kings (India), and MS Dhoni is still angry after being denied some home-made Biryani di tla bowa (it’s going to be tough). Match 12 will be between the Cobras against Caribbean boys Barbados Tridents (Barbados) on 26th September (Friday). Match 14 will be between the Dolphins and Lahore Lions (Pakistan) on 27th September (Saturday). On Sunday (28th September) the Cobras will be up against Kings XI Punjab (India), these boys better start winning and picking up points. The PSL is back from Friday while some are raring to go some are wounded, expect fireworks. Don’t miss Banyana’s Heritage match against Ivory Coast at 3pm.
Have a sportful week Pretorians. Enjoy!
