In my opinion, Twenty20 cricket is … just a circus to please today’s world obsessed with instant gratification. Test Cricket remains the only true indicator of ability, judgement and guile.
Our foreign import, Tim Sant’s journey to the Rollers is a true testament to the power of social media. Having arrived in Melkbos after three years in Durban, he Googled ‘cricket on the West Coast’ and found this website. The rest, as they say, is history. He made an instant impact with a wicket with his first-ever ball for the Rollers, and while his leg-spinners have blown hot and cold since, his solid batting has provided a great foundation for team to work around. Blessed with the English gift of the gab, Tim has also recently taken over as the team’s official Fines Master.
