What Cricket South Africa said

“Congratulations to Old Edwardians on being crowned the 2021-22 champions. This is a huge achievement as this makes them the number one community-based cricket club in the country,” said Cricket South Africa senior cricket manager Johan Weyers.

“Well done to all the participating teams on winning in their respective regions and making it to the final stage of the competition – the CSA T20 Community Cup.”

The 2019 T20 Community Cup was completely washed out and was not played in 2020 and 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“It is a great honour to be able host a successful T20 Community Cup after the last edition was rained out and the last two years were disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic,” added Weyers.
