TWO CENTURIES IN VAIN IN NPL

Brandon Moyo

ONLY two batters managed to reach the magic three digits in Round Six of the National Cricket Premier League whose matches took place over the weekend.

However, the two centuries were in vain as they yielded no victories in a week where both batters and bowlers managed to give impressive performances. A total of seven matches were played, three on Saturday and four on Sunday.

The first century scored this week came from the bat of Golden Bulls skipper, Shane Chigumbura, in their 62-run defeat at the hands of Rainbow Cricket Club on Saturday.

The second was scored by Westside Cricket Club’s opening batter Tinashe Chiorah, in a match that was cancelled due to bad light, against Takashinga Patriots 2, on Sunday.

Chigumbura had the highest individual score during round six of the country’s premier club cricket competition.

Batting on top of the order, he fell for a gallant 115 runs from 114 balls as they were chasing a target of 278 runs having bowled out their opponents for 275 in 39 overs. Golden Bulls went on to finish on 213 all out in 42,1 overs.
