Cape Town Samp Army’s twin victory laced with Darban Qalandar’s second consecutive win

It was the second day of Zim Afro T10 and Cape Town Samp Army arrived in a rocking avatar as they secured a victory over Harare Hurricanes to kickstart another set of glistening fixtures. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and T Marumani shined with the bat as the trio added 69 cumulatively, catapulting Samp Army to 112/7 at the end of their ten overs. Mohammad Nabi clinched two wickets for the Hurricanes to be the pick of the lot.

The Hurricanes did witness their star opener, Robin Uthappa smash a blinder to set the right tone in the opening slot but his 31 was the only silverlining for his side. Chasing 113, the Hurricanes could only come up with 97. The duo of Richard Ngarava and Tom Curran plundered four wickets between them to get the victory for Samp Army.

In the second match of the day, Durban Qalandars confronted Joburg Buffaloes that saw the former walking away with the bragging rights emphatically. Batting first, Tom Banton was the solitary silverlining for Joburg Buffaloes with the rest of the team coming extremely short that saw them post 94. Banton’s decent form continued as he hammered 55 from just 31 balls. Tendai Chatara was the pick of the lot with figures of 2/14 from his two overs.

In the final match of the day, Cape Town Samp Army was up against the Bulawayo Braves to cap the day off. The Braves won the toss and opted to bat first and had their fair shares of strikes coming from the blade of Ben McDermott. He scored 27 (17) alongside Kobe Herft’s crucial innings of 18 runs from just nine balls. Peter Hatzoglou and Tom Curran shared four wickets between them to confine the Braves within 86.

Cape Town Samp Army found themselves on a roll as their batters made quick work of a modest total posted by the Braves.

It was pretty much easy pickings for Samp Army once this duo got going as they secured a 8-wicket victory.
