The Jozi Cup
June saw the Jozi Cup, an initiative of Lions Cricket to promote winter cricket amongst its clubs, reach its climax. The veterans and women’s teams managed to make their respective semi-finals, but unfortunately, neither made it through to the final. However, the women did have the opportunity to play at the Wanderers Stadium.
Other players to receive player of the match awards during the Jozi Cup were Phenyo Phalatse (men’s premier), Traci Brest (women’s premier), Khutso Sekgobela (Under 15s), Josh Richards (men’s premier), Andrew Hanson (men’s premier). John Wearne (veterans).
International Cricket at the Wanderers Club
The Wanderers Veterans had the honour of hosting the United Arab Emirates Over 50s team in a T20 game. The UAE were on tour in preparation for the Over 50s World Cup that will take place in Cape Town during March 2023. In a close game, UAE won by 3 runs, despite a fine half-century from Jeff Levin in his last game for the club.
The UAE tourists also played two games against a Gauteng Over 50s representative team at the Wanderers Stadium. Congratulations to John Wearne and Frank Auger for their selection to the Gauteng Over 50s squad.
