Suné Luus and Delmi Tucker were stars with both bat and ball, leading Northerns to a 40-run victory against rivals Gauteng in their first T20 match of Day Three at the Cricket SA National Girls Under-19 Week in Kimberley on Monday.

Northerns won the toss and batted first where Tucker was unbeaten for 15* and Luus scored 19 to post 139/9. Both players returned to star with the ball with Luus taking three wickets for just five runs and Tucker 3/14 to win the match.

South Western Districts (SWD) beat Limpopo by 46 runs when Bernadine Bezhuidenhout scored 61 off 63 balls to get her toss winning side to 112/2. Limpopo could not reply in kind with their highest run scorer, Jessica McMurtie managing 10 (32). They were bowled out for 66 with Michaela Andrews taking 2/11.

In a twist no one was expecting, Kei beat Griqualand West (Griquas) by eight runs while Border beat Free State by nine wickets.

In round two, Gauteng suffered their second loss of the day when they faced Boland. Gauteng won the toss and chose to bat first, posting 80/7 with Savanna Cordes top scoring with 33 runs. Boland’s Stacy Lackay did well to get an unbeaten 37 from 34 runs to get her team their four-wicket victory.

Border claimed their second win when they beat KwaZulu-Natal Inland by eight wickets. Zintle Mpupha took three wickets for 13 and contributed 30 unbeaten runs to help her side to victory.

Griquas suffered another setback when they were beaten by a mammoth 119 runs, when they faced a determined KwaZulu-Natal squad. Griquas won the toss and chose to bowl first. Mishel Jeena and Caitlin Dowes were both unbeaten for 76 and 48 respectively, posting 152/1 at the end of their 20 overs.

Griquas could not retaliate and were losing wickets too quickly to recover. They were bundled out for 33 runs with Emma Pennefather taking 3/9 and Jody Lane conceding no runs for two wickets.

Days four and five are the 50 over games and they promise to bring out the strength of some teams, while others will have to dig down deep to secure their mark in this format.
