Thousands In Prizes For Young Cricketers

Three boys walked away several hundreds of dollars richer after winning prize money and awards at the just ended Ram Slam tournament that was held at St John’s College over the weekend.

Host St John’s Gary King won the Batsman Of The Tournament Award, and Joshua Worsely of Falcon College was the runner-up. For his 207 runs, King got $250 cash from Health International and Bon Marche as well as a $100 shopping voucher, a pair of Adidas gloves and a bat from Absolute Sports.

Falcon College’s Francis Mayebe and St John’s Shane Snater took 10 wickets during the weekend, but Mayebe’s low economy of 6.315 earned him the Bowler of the Tournament award. Mayebe also earned $250 from the two main sponsors, a $100 voucher and Adidas cricket spikes from Absolute Sports.

Although Churchill played one less game than Falcon College and the finalists, St John’s and Hilton, Brian Mudzinganyama had statistics that were strong enough to win himself the All-rounder of the Tournament award. Mudzinganyama had 106 runs to his name and was also reponsible for the fall of six batsmen during the three day tournament. For his efforts he also pocketed $250 in cash, a $100 shopping voucher and a stump for bowling practice.
