A wrap of results from day four of the 2018 National Club Championship in Pretoria.

Yorkshire Cricket Club v University of Fort Hare Cricket Club

The Northern Cape’s Yorkshire Cricket Club cherished their first triumph of this year’s tournament, by six runs, against the University of Fore Hare Cricket Club at the Tuks Cricket Oval on Wednesday.

With 11 runs to defend from the final over of this nail-biter, the steely Desmond de Koker successfully staved off the attempted advances of tail-enders Simthembile Langa, Lizo Makhosi and Sekela Ngadlela.

Scores in brief:

Yorkshire Cricket Club 247/5 (50 overs)

Grant Mokoena 86; Aloysius Seleka 64 not out
Sekela Ngadlela 2/36; Bamanye Xenxe 2/40

University of Fort Hare Cricket Club 242/9 (50 overs)

Sihle Magongoma 78; Kabelo Sekhukhune 43
Kagisho Mohale 3/45; Desmond de Koker 2/25

Crusaders Cricket Club v Wellington Cricket Club

A magnificent all-round display from Man of the Match Eathan Bosch catapulted Crusaders Cricket Club to a convincing 77-run win over Wellington Cricket Club at Irene Country Club.

Bosch welcomed a superb century before undoing the middle-order opposition with three telling wickets. His fine effort with the ball was duly complemented by the experienced Nick Hewer.

Scores in brief:

Crusaders Cricket Club 260/8 (50 overs)

Eathan Bosch 107; Andile Mokgakane 71
Byron Fortuin 3/30; Kieran Dreyden 1/21

Wellington Cricket Club 183/10 (44.3  overs)

Curtley Louw 35; Lee Bosman 29
Eathan Bosch 3/40; Nick Hewer 3/27

University of Pretoria Cricket Club (Tuks) v North-West University Cricket Club (Pukke)

Captain Neil Brand and the talented Ruan de Swardt starred, as the University of Pretoria Cricket Club clinched a comfortable 125-run victory over the North-West University Cricket Club at the Tshwane University of Technology Oval.

The top-of-the-table clash yielded solid half-centuries for Brand and sidekick Donavon Ferreira, before de Swardt – and seamer Gideon Peters – resigned the opposition to an entirely inadequate response.

Scores in brief:

Tuks 242/10 (49.4 overs)

Neil Brand 73; Donavon Ferreira 56
Julian Soutter 2/27; Jon Hinrichsen 2/32

Pukke 117/10 (38.4 overs)

Jean Bredenkamp 31; Lourén Steenkamp 26
Ruan de Swardt 4/9; Gideon Peters 2/18
