Cricket: Saints give Moroccans a 40-run win at Sahara Park

St Helena 83 runs – Morocco 123

It should have been the least-troublesome of St Helena’s two matches in South Africa today – but this morning the islanders fell to Morocco’s national cricket team by 40 runs.

It gave the Moroccams their second win on the Sahara Park pitches in the Pepsi ICC Africa division 3 tournament.

Zuraida Badat, official International Cricket Council reporter, writes:

On Field ‘B’ of Sahara Park Willowmoore, the spirited Moroccan side decided to bat after winning the toss against St Helena.

Morocco scored 123 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in 20 overs with contribution from all batsmen. P Stroud took 3 wickets for 16 runs on the St Helena bowling.

St Helena were bowled out for 83 runs in 17.4 overs, making the Moroccans winners by 40 runs.

In other matches, Rwanda lost to the Seychelles by 30 runs, Gambia beat Mali, and the “fearless” Cameroonians fell to Zambia by 112 runs.
