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.
