Bok stars for T20 cricket ‘Hit and Giggle’
NATIONAL captain Jean de Villiers and vice-captain Victor Matfield have both been included in a star-studded Springbok T20 cricket team to face off against the Proteas in the Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup T20 match in Johannesburg on December 5. Matfield scored 23 runs from 23 balls and hit four fours against the Proteas in Cape Town earlier this year. The two Springbok centurions will be joined by Willem Alberts, who took two wickets in as many balls at Newlands, as well as Willie le Roux, who scored 16 from eight balls including a big six. Recently-retired Tiaan Liebenberg and Duane Vermeulen, one of the Springboks’ wicket-takers at Newlands, will also have another chance to showcase their cricket skills.
