THE RAM SLAM CATCH R2 MILLION IS SET ALIGHT!:

Two cricket fans took magnificent one-handed clean catches during the televised game between the Hollywoodbets Dolphins and the WSB Cape Cobras, resulting in them being awarded a share of the R2 million prize pool come the end of the 2017 RAM SLAM Competition.

First catcher Andrew Scott remained in disbelief for many hours post his catch. “I was recently retrenched so this money is most welcome and despite playing cricket in my younger days, this is undoubtedly the catch of my lifetime! I’ve just started a business so I’ll need the money for that too. I’m extremely excited and want to thank everyone for this initiative,” beamed the Randburg resident who was sitting under the scoreboard at the time of his catch.

Unfortunately for 47-year-old Andrew, his celebrations were cut short as three balls later Dylan Joubert caught his catch off the same batsman as Dylan: 27-year-old Hollywoodbets Dolphins captain, Khaya Zondo.

“I actually couldn’t quite believe it,” said the second successful catcher, Pretoria resident Dylan Joubert. “I caught it off Philander’s bowling as I was sitting on the west bank grass. I haven’t even thought about what I’ll do with the money – perhaps I will invest it.”

Post the second catch and still in the same match, a third clean catch was taken. However as an employee of the Gauteng Cricket Board, he was not eligible as per the competitions terms and conditions and thus not considered as a successful third winner.

“Congratulations to all our winners so far,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) Acting Chief Executive Thabang Moroe. “The fans have certainly bought into this concept and are contributing to the hype and excitement that is typical of this extremely popular format.”
