KSA CT's action cricket event a huge success for all
KSA CT held an awesome year end action cricket evening on Thursday night. It was super to see members from diverse companies all pulling together to make the evening such a success. We had eight teams playing in a round robin style play off and boy, the competition was stiff.
Congratulations to the overall winners the 'Chippendales' otherwise known as PG Bison and Chipbase. The final between them and Hirsch's 'Go 4 it' team was something to behold and had us all on the edge of our seats. As winners they go the honour of cutting the stunning KSA cricket champs cake.
The team spirit award went to Franke's 'Frankelicious' team who displayed their usual sense of humour by dressing very inappropriately for the evening (as the pictures will show). Their captain, Nico Claase, showed ultimate dedication to his team by trying to get the sympathy vote when he tore his Achilles tendon (we wish you a speedy recovery Nico!)
We were surprised at how vicious action cricket could be as Nico's trip to hospital was followed closely by Lou-Ann spraining her ankle and Ezaad getting severe cramp. We have to admire our members dedication to the sport and their teams.
Congratulations must also go to the four players who were identified by the organisers as players of the series:
Fabien from Larson Lions
'V6' from Hirsch's Go 4 it
Marco from Joos Joiners / Grass (G-Stars)
Charles from Frankelicious
The evening was made extra special when a member made comment on how much they enjoyed these KSA events and how they not only build relationships between member companies but also helped give those involved that last bite of energy to finish off the year.
A huge thanks for all who supported the evening and to Claremont Action Sport for all their help in the preparations and on the evening.
