Free State beat Northerns on day 3 of the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket Week


The Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week goes into its fourth day on Thursday with only eight results being produced in the 32 matches that should have been played by now.
Every day so far has been disrupted by the weather, but Wednesday was the worst of all. The eight morning T20 matches all got going, but they were all called off because of rain, with only one 1st innings being completed.
In the afternoon session, seven of the eight games were abandoned without a ball being bowled. The eighth – between Free State and Northerns did start, and it was completed, with Free State chasing down a smallish, 107-run total for the loss of seven wickets.
The fixtures for Thursday have been announced and they see the customary big guns meeting each other. Gauteng play Eastern Province and KwaZulu-Natal meet Western Province, with the winners of those games likely to come up against each other in Friday’s prestigious final game of the week.
