Wynberg Cricket Club’s Sheraz Ali has been named the Club Cricket SA Player of the Week on the back of a superb all-round performance on Saturday, 19 November 2016.
Ali scored a solid century – and clinched two key wickets – as Wynberg Cricket Club sealed a comfortable triumph over Peninsula Cricket Club in a key Western Province Cricket Club third division A fixture.
The talented right-hander’s performance with the bat was particularly impressive, affording Wynberg Cricket Club a fine recovery from 30 for five to 222 all out in their allotted 35 overs.
Ali top-scored with 101, which included eight fours and five sixes, and shared a vital 150-run partnership alongside half-centurion Basit Razak.
His contribution with the ball later brought a telling brace, as Peninsula Cricket Club’s pursuit fell severely short.
Ali’s closest competitor for this week’s accolade was Western Province Cricket Club’s Daniel Moriarty. The left-arm spin bowler clinched outstanding second-innings figures of six for three in 8.4 overs, including seven maidens, as Rondebosch Cricket Club slumped to a heavy loss in the WPCA premier league.
