The Six Gun Grill Garden Route Badgers sealed a dramatic Super-Over win over the Fidelity Titans in the T20 Challenge of the inaugural CSA Professional Domestic Women’s League at the Recreation Ground in Outdshoorn, on Sunday, 8 October, 2023.

In the Division One clash, Badgers top-order batter Asakhe Nyovane produced a leading score of 54 (40) with eight fours, as the Garden Route Badgers posted 132/3 after their 20 overs. 

Titans opener, Robyn Searle top-scored with an unbeaten 66* (57) which included five fours helped the #DaisyLadies tie the game with a total of 132 all out, to set up a nail-biting Super-Over finish.

Titans managed to post 8/1 in the single-over shootout, but it was the never-give-up attitude from Badgers pair Nyovane (3) and Julia Hoal (4), with the help of two extras off the bowling of Paulinah Mashishi (0/9) that carried the hosts over the line in dramatic fashion, to claim their first victory of the tournament. 

In Division Two, there was still no play possible between Eastern Province and the Northern Cape Heat due to inclement weather in Gqeberha and the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Meanwhile in Potchefstroom, Eastern Storm got their T20 season underway with a five-wicket triumph over the Glencore North West Dragons. Eastern Storm all-rounder Mpumelelo Mashiloane shone with both bat and ball on the day. 

Her excellent spell of bowling (2/13) helped Eastern Storm to restrict the Dragons to 111/6 before Mashiloane lead the way at the crease with a 64 (44) with three fours, to seal victory for her team.

In Paarl, Boland completed the weekend double over Eastern Cape linyathi. Boland continued with the same momentum from the day before as they dismissed the visitors for 84 in the nineteenth over, before chasing down the target with one over to spare. Zizipho Mdebuka stood tall with 24 (23) to help seal the win for Boland.

Supporters can find scorecards, highlights, and live streams of the matches on both the PitchVision website and CSA’s YouTube page.
