Franchise cricket in Oudtshoorn
SOUTH CAPE South Western Districts will again host the Cape Cobras in a Sunfoil Cup Four Day match this season.
The Cobras will take on the Hollywood Bets Dolphins at the Recreation Ground from 5 to 8 October. Cricket South Africa recently confirmed the Sunfoil Four-day competition fixtures for the upcoming 2017/18 season. In January this year SWD made history when they hosted their first franchise fixture when the Cobras and the Lions were involved in a thriller as the Cobras won the four-day match with 12 balls left on the final day.
The SWD administration will however be very keen to secure either a Momentum Cup One Day match or a Twenty20 franchise match for the upcoming season. A match of that nature will be a real crowd puller at the Oudtshoorn Recreation Ground. SWD will also, for the first time since 2006 host the Momentum u.13 National Week over the period 11 to 15 December.
