The opening Club Cricket SA Player of the Week award goes to Green Point Cricket Club’s Zac Elkin.
Elkin scored a commanding 94 against Strandfontein Cricket Club on 16 January 2016, ensuring the hosts maintained the advantage in a key Western Province Cricket Association first division B fixture at the Stephan Oval.
“It would have been great to get a ton, but the nervous 90s got the better of me. Good thing we had the guys to come in after me, give the ball a good whack – and push us to a formidable total,” the talented right-hander told Club Cricket SA.
The 24-year-old Elkin – and all other Club Cricket SA Players of the Week for January and February – wins two tickets (valued at R460) to 9 March’s Twenty20 International between South Africa and Australia at Newlands in Cape Town.
