THE RAM SLAM is back! Cricket South Africa (CSA) today launched the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge which gets underway at St. George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Friday evening when the Warriors host the VKB Knights in an encounter that will see the grounds state of the art new floodlights in use for the first time. All six franchises will be in action over the weekend with the first of three double headers featuring the WSB Cape Cobras against the Hollywoodbets Dolphins and the Jukskei Derby between the Multiply Titans and the bizhub Highveld Lions on Sunday at SuperSport Park. In an exciting development for fans the prize money pool for the Catch a Million competition has been doubled and will thus be a Catch Two Million competition. It will apply to all matches that are televised live by SuperSport and will require fans to make a clean one-handed catch.
The full terms and conditions are on the CSA website (www.cricket.co.za). The RAM SLAM T20 Challenge will be played over a double round with one important change being the reversion to two semi-finals rather than the previous system where the log toppers got automatic entry to the final while there was an eliminator between the two teams finishing second and third. The Final will be held on December 16.
