This weekend sees a total of eight one-day cricket matches in the two women’s provincial Inland and Coastal cricket leagues, with KZN and KZN Inland competing in away matches on both days in the Inland Challenge.
In the Coastal Challenge, Sekunjalo Western Province faces a daunting travelling schedule from Cape Town to East London overnight on Friday for Saturday’s match against bottom-of-the-log Border, followed by their next match on Sunday in Port Elizabeth against Eastern Province.
Also in the Coastal Challenge, Boland faces Griqualand West in Kimberley on Saturday and a sterner test against Free State in Bloemfontein on Sunday in an equally daunting travelling expedition.
The Coastal Challenge’s Boland are early-season log-leaders, and should comfortably beat their first opponents Griqualand West, while their second match against Free State will pose a more demanding challenge.
