Congratulations to the Proteas and specifically new boy wonder, Lungi Ngidi. The fast bowler claimed 6 wickets in the 2nd Innings on his home ground, thus enabling the South Africans to clinch the Freedom Trophy at SuperSport Park.

The 3rd and final Test at Bidvest Wanderers is certainly not a dead rubber, as there is the small matter of the ICC Test Championship and a cool one million US Dollars up for grabs. Should South Africa win the final Test against India, and then go on to score a positive series win against the Australians, there is a slim chance that South Africa could be sitting pretty on top of the ICC standings come the 1st of April. However, there is plenty of cricket still to be played before the players can start counting on that potential windfall.

The stand out PSL fixture this weekend is the Cape Town Derby with Ajax Cape Town facing Cape Town City FC. Mr. Boomerang himself, Muhsin Ertugral, faces the new kid on the block, Benni McCarthy, in a crucial fixture for both clubs. Ajax are keen to climb the log, while City are desperately trying to cling onto Sundowns coattails at the top of the table.

On Sunday, the womens international team take on Sweden in an international friendly at Cape Town Stadium, the first time that Banyana Banyana have visited the Mother City.

Internationally, Getty provides coverage of the first tennis Grand slam from a sweltering Melbourne. In London, the South African Netball team take part in the first leg of the quad series.
