IT is early days, but defending champions Mecer NMMU1 once again look the side to beat in Eastern Province Cricket's Super League.
The students hardly broke a sweat in beating Pirates and Northville in the opening rounds last weekend.
More of the same is expected when they host newcomers Northerns tomorrow, and then travel to take on Uitenhage on Sunday.
The ever-expanding Super A League has now ballooned to 20 teams. The goal of reducing the league for this season was delayed and in fact two more teams have been added to last season's 18. The result of it all is the repeated occurrence of awkward mismatches with as many as six sides being bowled out for less than a hundred.
Maritime Motors Old Grey romped to a massive 245-run victory over the other new side, KwaDwesi at the weekend.
An unbeaten 137 from Juan Harker saw Old Grey amass 381 for five in their 50 overs. There could be further carnage tomorrow when Old Grey play United at Freeplay Park.
Rotatrim PECC will be tested in their double-header against Rhodes in Grahamstown tomorrow and NMMU2 at St George's Park on Sunday.
Meanwhile, EP Cricket will stage its annual general meeting at the Indoor Centre at Axxess St George's from 10am tomorrow. The nominations for the two top positions are: president: Garfield Sauls, Sinomia Lewis, Donavan May and Jerry Mbenge; vice-president: Terry Reid, Jerry Mbenge, Sinomia Lewis.
