On: Friday, 01 Nov 2019
Venue: at Home

Grey High won the toss and elected to bat first on City Lords.The opening pair of James Hofmeyr (92) and Jade Smith (132) were outstanding in a 1st wicket partnership of 186 runs in 27 overs. The highlight of the partnership was not only both batsmen's ability to hit boundaries but also the fact that they ran incredibly well between the wickets. The pick of the bowlers for Kingswood was Sibu Zweni (1/47 in 8 overs) and Caleb Daniels who picked up 2/65 in 8 overs. Grey reached 290/4 after their 40 overs.

In reply, Kingswood got off to a slow start and were under pressure at 14/3. Cameron Lombaard (43) and Aidan Meyer (48) batted superbly with a partnership of 80 runs for the 4th wicket to get Kingswood back into the game. Unfortunately both batters were dismissed in quick succession after the drinks break, dashing any realistic hope Kingswood had of getting close to the imposing total. Cole van der Merwe (33 not out off 21 balls) played a very good knock at the back end of the Kingswood innings. Kingswood were finally dismissed for 190 runs.

Grey High were the better team and won the game by 100 runs.
