Blue Downs Cricket Club spinner achieves remarkable feat

Blue Downs Cricket Club

Blue Downs Cricket Club’s Timothy Oktober bowled a remarkable seven consecutive maidens in a recent Western Province Cricket Association third division C fixture against Cape Town Cricket Club.

The WPCA third division allows bowlers a maximum of seven overs each in the 35-over innings – and Oktober did not concede a solitary run during his full allotment.

The talented spin bowler exploited the low and slow conditions on offer at Zwaanswyk High School’s Guinea Fowl Oval in Tokai, Cape Town, superbly – and completed three wicket-maidens, to finish with telling figures of three for zero in seven overs.

His impressive contribution ensured a comfortable victory for the visitors.
