Cricket South Africa Women’s Professional Domestic T20 Challenge League made a landmark stride when the Fidelity Titans Women hosted the Recon Tactical Free State Women’s team in a live broadcast of their match, at SuperSport Park, Centurion on Friday 8 March 2024. 

The televised match put on national display the immense talent and competitiveness within the women’s domestics cricket structure in South Africa, with both teams entertaining the crowd on the day.

Titans, having chosen to bowl first after winning the toss, showed their prowess and confidence from the get go as they restricted Free State to 115/7 in their innings.

DP World Lions women secured a 2-run victory over their visitors Six Gun Grill Garden Route Badgers in another thrilling encounter at the DP World Wanderers Stadium, on Sunday, 10 March. 

Winning the toss, Badgers had a bowl first and they did not make things easy for the home team. Madison Landsman (30), Kirstie Thomson (23), Diara Ramlakan (26) and an unbeaten effort from Proteas wicketkeeper Sinalo Jafta (31*) pushed the Lions total to 114/5 in their allotted 20-overs.

In response, the Badgers’ opening pair of La Grange (27), Tazmin Brits (25) and Asakhe Nyovane (21) all took the fight to the Lions bowlers, but the destructive pace bowler Ayabonga Khaka brought her #LionsPride to bear, taking 4/26 in an effort well-supported by Relebohile Mkhize (2/7), to beat the Badgers by a mere 2 runs.
