Relentless Southern Rocks go top


MASVINGO – Masvingo cricket outfit Southern Rocks is enjoying a stellar season with three straight wins which have propelled them to the top of the five-team league.

Rocks are on 30 points with wins over Eagles, Rhinos and Tuskers. Rocks bat Eagles with an innings and 199 runs. Second placed Eagles has 15 points from three matches, a win over Mountaineers, draw with Rhinos and a defeat from Rocks.

Tuskers are third with 10 points from three games, two draws and a defeat. Rhinos are fourth after registering two draws and a defeat. Mountaineers are fifth with a draw and a defeat to Eagles. “I am a proud supporter of Southern Rocks. One cannot believe that this team was dissolved during the 2013/14 season but looks set to win the league.

This is the best team in the Logan Cup league because it has continued winning despite the fact that most players were called for national duty,” said Alois Mutendi, a Southern Rocks supporter. Rocks has the highest total for a team after notching 449 runs from 116.0 overs in two innings against Eagles. The team also beat tuskers by 10 wickets and recorded a 185 runs margin against Rhinos.
