Historic cricket win over Affies

 Breidyn Schaper

Jeppe cricket had a good day against Affies in Pretoria last Saturday. They won four of the seven matches played. Including a historic 1st ever win at 1st team level.

Affies batted first in a low-scoring game and were bowled out for 186, with Laughton, Kahn and Robertson taking two wickets each.

Jeppe reached the target with two overs to spare, with eight wickets down. They were made to work hard by a gutsy Affies side after several batsmen got in and then were guilty of losing their wickets due to poor shots.

In the end it took a determined knock of 21 from Kgaudi Molefe to see them home.
