Cricket results 2016 – Week 4

Wind and rain cause despair, again

Another weekend of high winds and incessant rain made many East Rand pitches unplayable this weekend, including Benoni Northerns’ pitches. All three covers, well secured with tyres and pegs, succumbed to the high winds leaving the pitches drenched.

Only the C field was playable on Sunday after baking in the sun.

New tyres

We have received heavy earth-mover tyres from Auto & Truck Tyres (Wadeville) to make sure we’re covered next time.

Thank you for the donation Douglas from Auto & Truck Tyres (Wadeville) and thanks to Gavin.
