* And in a pre-festival limited-over match on Wynberg Old Boy Jacques Kallis’s pristine Oval yesterday, the hosts beat Michaelhouse by 33 runs.

After winning the toss Wynberg posted 212 in 43 overs; to which Michaelhouse replied with 179/4 in their allotted 45 overs.

* The 96- and 55-run partnerships for the first and third wickets respectively set up the Wynberg win.

The House wicket-takers were:

Opener Roeland van den Berg 8 overs 3 maidens for 22 runs & 2 wkts
Oliver Morgan 7-1-28-2
Jack Trotter 9-1-59-2
James Fleming 9-1-38-3
Jared Meiring 1-0-1-1

 

The Ben Rebeck 50 in a losing cause on Goldstones 1st term last year epitomised the unruffled fighting spirit of the 2019 Michaelhouse first XI captain, whose 63* off 88 balls vs Wynberg yesterday included 4 fours and 2 sixes. Photo Jono Cook

 

* The run outs of opener Jared Meiring and number 4 Ryan Stringer did not serve the House run chase well.

Adrian Fisher (47 off 72 balls with 4 fours) and captain Ben Rebeck (63* 86b 4×4 2×6) put on 72 for the 4th wicket.

The pair were the notable batting performers for House.

Michaelhouse team batting order: Jared Meiring, Callum Porrill, Adrian Fisher, Ryan Stringer, Ben Rebeck (capt), Luke Gammie, Roeland van der Berg, Oliver Morgan, Gavin Veenstra, James Fleming, Harry Nel, Jack Trotter, Campbell Davis-Webb
