Tera leads Sharks against Dolphins

We may know him as a take-no-prisoners loose forward with silky skills and a surprising turn of pace, but along with many others in the Sharks rugby squad, Tera Mtembu is also a fine cricketer. So good was he at the 11-man game, in fact, that rugby only narrowly won the race to secure his professional services after school. All-rounder Mtembu will bat at number 4 and captain the Sharks cricket team as they take on the Dolphins at Kingsmead in this evening’s Holywood Bets Showdown at the Coast festival cricket match.

Two newcomers will open the batting for the Sharks; Garth April and Rhyno Smith both have the build of classic batsmen and one thing you can say for sure is that any running between the wickets is likely to be done at blistering pace. Jean Deysel, the veteran, will provide stability at 3, with Paul Jorddan, Cobus Reinach and Kyle Cooper all looking to add runs a little lower down the order.

I’m not sure whether the Dolphins batsmen would ever have faced a 1.98m and 130kg+ fast bowler, but with Giant Mtayanda spearheading the attack, along with another huge man in centre Andre Esterhuizen, there should be no shortage of fireworks. S’bura Sithole will presumably also bowl a few overs, while Stefan Ungerer is the man entrusted with the gloves this evening.

Best of luck, Sharks! Let’s see how this one turns out.

  • @JD (Comment 2) : Yeh interesting that Lambie isnt playing having been the best player in these games in previous years. Perhaps he has a little niggle? or just an extended time off.

  • Hi guys, I’m fairly new to Sharksworld, and WordPress, so please can I ask someone to explain the points story to me? Or show me where I can find out more about it. Can I redeem the points in exchange for a NZ jersey?

  • @the ko (Comment 31) : hi…. “fairly new” and you already have 4 stars? Interesting ;)

    basically, you get points every time you log in, leave a comment or post an article. The points are really just used in determining the star rankings (loyalty bonus type of thing) but are occasionally used as a tie-break criterion when we run competitions.

    Gongrats to the Dolphins and nice try for the Sharks.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 49) : Super crazy…the first Knights wicket fell to a seamer and from there on in all 19 fell to spinners! Bizarre! Even more weird is that the Knights spinners hardly did any damage at all and almost all our wickets fell to seamers…
