Accolades:

Mems – as he is popularly known – embodies all that JCC stands for. Committed. Humble. Driven.

A senior player within the club who has been instrumental in the dominant performance of the 2nd Team this season, Mems has consistently delivered with both bat and ball.

His statistics for the season speak for themselves. It is in his quiet leadership role as a senior player who has won the respect of his teammates and his constant encouragement to our younger players where Mems has delivered his greatest value.

This role has taken on even greater significance with his recent elevation to the 1st Team that is fighting a battle royale in the Premier A league.

Mems, we salute you and thank you for your relentless and committed attitude this season. Long may it continue.

Accolades:

Dinolan is yet another young JCC star who has come through the ranks from junior level cricket.

He has been selected as the Player of the Month for December/January on the strength of his performance this season. The joint December-January profile is by virtue of the holiday break, which meant that only two weeks of play were possible in each month.

This performance is underpinned by his elevation into the Premier A side, in which he has quickly cemented a regular place.

We have every confidence that Dinolan will continue to display his batting prowess and mature as a seasoned player at the highest level of club cricket competition.

Age
32

Accolades:

Peter is this season’s perennial over-performer: his ever-ready smile is accompanied by his willingness to take up the ball and claim wickets when it matters most.

In the past month he added two more five-fors to his record, bringing his total so far to three, and his total number of wickets to 28. It is no surprise then that he has a strike rate of little over 15 balls per wicket, an average of around 13 runs per wicket and an economy rate of under 5.5 runs per over.

These numbers combine to place Peter as the club’s top bowler by far.

A little known fact is that he also became a father in November – we wish him and his young family all the very best for a happy and fulfilling future together.

JCC concede 3-year dominance

Report by Tshepiso Mametela

The second innings got under way with the home side looking to keep their stranglehold on what has been a tight grip on the annual Inner City Corporate Match.

Ambitions of a fourth victory in as many events were however dealt a quick blow as JCC got off to a shaky start losing wickets at regular intervals.

Chatsworth Old Boys (COB) were rampant and would not let a chance at taking full control of matters go a-begging. They continued to mow at the opponents’ lawn and exposed the weakness in JCC’s middle order – leaving the home side teetering on 66 for 6 after 10 overs at lunch.

After the lunch break, some clever bowling by COB ensured that they kept the pressure on the defending champions – John Robbie undone by a back of a length delivery which he steered back to the bowler – the ball striking the bowler (Emmanuel Mahlangu) on the foot and crashing into the stumps at the non-striker’s end.

Mark Rock Perring struck a flurry of boundaries in a quick fire 24 run, 16-ball cameo to restore some parity to the JCC course before retiring out with the home side already eight down.

A further woeful batting effort compounded matters for JCC with Chatsworth making further inroads as they made head way by dismissing David Nagle for 16 runs off 11 balls and exposing a brittle challenge to a modest total.

Nine wickets down and clutching at lost hope, club chairman and perennial stalwart, Indarin Govender strode to the middle.

With his side facing a mountain to climb, the chairman got off the mark with the first ball he faced, much to the delight of JCC’s senior squad contingent.

Any hopes of sparking a mighty resurgence would finally fade with the imminent fall of the tenth and final wicket, rousing a first win for Chatsworth Old Boys who fought valiantly to end a three-year winless drought and in the process helping to shape the vision behind the ethos of the Corporate Match.

1st Innings Match Report

Report by Tshepiso Mametela

A glorious summer’s day welcomed players and guests to the 4th annual Inner City Corporate Cricket Match at JCC’s home ground, Hope Village in Bertrams.

The excitement and festivities that underpin this prominent initiative renewed the rivalry between Joburg Cricket Club (JCC) and the Chatsworth Old Boys’ (COB) side, which honours JCC’s origins as cricket exiles from KwaZulu-Natal.

Under clear blue skies and sweltering heat, JCC won the toss and elected to bowl first on a less than docile track that had a generous tinge of grass.

Sent in to bat, the visitors were hoping to stamp their mark on proceedings and showed early intent as they took the attack to the Chatsworth bowlers.

Tharshen Moodley, opening for COB raced to 23 runs off 11 balls before retiring out, subsequently joined by his opening partner, Nish Evans, when he too retired out after a run a ball 22.

An inspired JCC outfit, defending champions  of this annual fixture, struggled in their attempts to wrestle initiative as they presented the visitors’ top order with little to no chances at taking their foot off the gas.

At the drinks break, COB were sitting pretty on 98 for no loss after 10 overs – the exception, three retired batsmen following respective knocks in excess of 20.

After the resumption, COB continued with the onslaught – adding 10 runs to their drinks break total in the first over before JCC finally struck – the keeper moving sharply behind the stumps to remove Zed Ndamane for 3 – the score, 108 for 1.

The narrative was set and the match seemingly headed for a climax, as COB piled on the runs, before David Nagle got two quick wickets in the penultimate over of the game. These wickets take on added significance as this was David’s first ever game of cricket.

In the end, COB managed a total of 167 from their allotted 20 overs for the loss of 3 wickets.
