A remarkable century against Bellville Cricket Club has earned Durbanville Cricket Club’s Byron Boshoff the Club Cricket SA Player of the Week award.
Boshoff struck a superb 167, as the hosts assumed the ascendancy over their northern suburbs rivals in Saturday, 21 January 2017’s key Western Province Cricket Association premier league fixture.
The 24-year-old right-hander’s brisk innings spanned a mere 162 deliveries – and featured 16 fours and a hefty seven sixes – against an opposition bowling attack spearheaded by overseas professional Chris Russell.
Boshoff was particularly impressive during a fine 191-run second-wicket partnership alongside the talented Dale Campbell, who eventually fell for a solid 90.
Bellville Cricket Club are currently atop the 10-team WPCA premier league standings, while Boshoff and company occupy fifth position.
