Old Grey deliver early blow to Madibaz 1

Tavcor Commercial Old Grey ensured Madibaz 1 suffered an early setback in the defence of their NMB Premier League title, beating the champions by 14 runs at the campus on Sunday.
Old Grey had struggled in recent weeks, but they were up for the fight against a talented student side, who had thrashed PECC on Saturday by 156 runs thanks to big hundreds from David Masterson (163) and Josh van Heerden (142).
Old Grey posted a decent 196 with Elnatan Meiri leading the way with 69. Madibaz 1 would have fancied their chances of chasing down their target and they got off to a good start with a quick 32 from Masterson. But experienced Old Grey seamer Daryn Korkie pulled it back for the visitors, removing openers Masterson and Erasmus Pretorius (20). Van Heerden also chipped in with 30.
In the end, they fell just short with Korkie taking a tidy three for seven in 5.2 overs.
Motherwell continued their fine form in beating BLG Gelvandale by one wicket. Luvuyo Adam took five for 17 to follow on from his seven-wicket haul last weekend while Remano October took a fighting 6/24 for Gelvandale.
