The sun set on the first night of The Cricket Sixes at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf club.
A group of ex-professional cricketers and various media were celebrating after a round of golf.
All in the name of Charity.
After a festive golfing day both local and international cricketers were sold off to the highest bidders all for bragging rights and all for Charity.
Among the charities doing some great work is former Proteas wicket-keeper Mark Boucher’s and SAB’s Rhino Conservation. Former Proteas captain Graeme Smith, former England batsman Kevin Pietersen, former Australian batsman Damien Martyn, among a whole host of other incredible sportsmen were there giving up their time to support charities aiming to educate underprivileged children and develop sport.
Saturday morning began with breakfast of beer, banter and a whole host of competitiveness.
The media team was shamed, losing all four of their matches despite having A-Class cricketer Damien Martyn on the team. To be fair, he was dropped for the last match after having had one, or 6, too many of the sponsor’s brews.
Over R400 000 was raised for charity by the close of play on Saturday!
A glamorous and successful weekend of play was had by all.
