Following the Pineapple Cricket Tournament each year a team of the best players is formed to compete in the annual Pineapple versus Ngumbela rural cricket match, and this year saw a low-scoring but nevertheless entertaining match played along with one of the best catches ever seen.

The match, played at the Port Alfred Country Cub on Sunday, saw the Ngumbela 11 take to the field in an attempt to make a big score big and then restrict the Pineapple 11 as they attempt to pass that score. But things didn’t go quite to plan.
