UNIVERSITY OF Tuks (Pretoria) are the 2018 Varsity Cricket T20 winners following a resounding win over the stubborn and 2017 champs North West University (Pukke).
They were outclassed by five wickets in the finals held at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom, in the North West Province last Saturday evening.
The sixth day of the tournament began with the annual RAG parade, that commenced in the morning with a carnival themed setting took place to celebrate the victorious week that has passed, as well as entailed two semi-final rounds before the much anticipated final game.
Steers, one of the sponsors backing the national Varsity Cricket, hosted guests in their chillout zone, including PUK FM #Ballin competition winners.
Says Adolf Fourie-Steers Marketing Executive:” We are excited to be sponsoring Varsity Cricket once again because this is a platform that gives rise to South Africa’s most respectable cricket players such as Lungi Ngidi who played in the 2015 tournament and now represents the Green and Golden boys of the South African National team.
We pride ourselves with being a brand that is committed to developing the real passion, drive, and dedication as well as sporting excellence of young talent in South Africa.
This great platform allows us support the sport across varied age groups and backgrounds nationally which is important for us as we invest in enriching lives in the regions that we operate in.”
The victorious winners UP Tuks added some Gees into #Ballin cricket action and pocketed a cool R19, 800.
Steers television commercial actor Greg Dlamini who plays the role of ‘Tshepo’ was amongst thousands of students and fans commented: “It is so cool to represent a brand such as Steers because not only do I showcase the real goodness they have in their flame-grilled burgers on TV, but to also have the opportunity to see and support how they are strong influence in the development of South African young talent on the sports field as I was once an athlete myself.”
