KFC are sponsors of the KFC T20 Internationals and associate sponsors of the domestic Ram Slam T20 Challenge.
Spectators at the Comtech hub in Umlazi watched the KFC Mini-Cricket kids beat the Proteas to take a 2-0 lead in the KFC Mini-Cricket kids vs Proteas Tour, the biggest tour of the summer.
Unlike the previous game where the kids always looked like they were going to win, this time the game was a close contest between the two team.
The Proteas consisting of Farhaan Behardien, David Miller, Khaya Zondo, Morne van Wyk, Dinesha Devnarain, Chloe Tryon, Nadine Moodley and Marcia Letsoalo , won the toss and batted first.
The Proteas players were always under pressure but brilliant batting from Denisha Devnarain and Farhaan Behardien helped the Proteas score 48. Minenhle Notbela was the kids best bowler taking 2/3 in his over.
The Proteas bowlers returned the favour and put the KFC Mini-Cricket kids under a lot of pressure. The KFC Mini-Cricket kids managed to score 48 runs in their 8 overs and tie the game thanks to 12 runs from Minenhle Ntobela.
The game went to a super over and the kids batted first. The kids had an amazing super over scoring 11 runs. The Proteas only managed to reply with 8 runs in their over.
The man of the match was Minenhle Ntobela thanks to his 12 runs and his 2 wickets for 3 runs.
As associate sponsors in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge, KFC endorses the reason why they are involved in KFC Mini-Cricket and that is to encourage kids to live active lifestyles. The kids are chosen at the 16 KFC Mini-Cricket festivals held around the country. Each child gets the chance to meet a local professional cricketer at the KFC mobile studios where they ask them questions about cricket. Being able to meet and interact with their heroes during a KFC T20 International is a once in a lifetime experience for the kids involved, something that can be clearly seen when they are caught on camera during the matches dancing and interacting with the crowds!
With the cut and thrust nature of the T20 game, the KFC Mini-Cricket kids’ involvement in these thrilling domestic and international matches adds to the live spectacle, and gives the youngsters the belief to aim high as they go from strength to strength within KFC Mini-Cricket.
