Johan Louw blasted a remarkable century from number nine for his Cape Cobras side in South Africa’s Super Series this week.

Louw – pro in 2001 when he scored more than 1,000 runs and took 75 wickets – hammered 108 not out, he second first-class century, for the Cobras against the Knights.

He dominated a ninth wicket partnership of 118 with Johannes Bothma, but his side could only draw their game.

  1. Scoop

    If memory serve, his batting partner Johannes Bothma was a deputy we once engaged as sub pro but wasn’t required as it rained !! He was though, how do i put this ……………. thick as two short planks !!!!

  2. Presumably Johann was “seeing it like a beachball and hitting it like a rocket” as he did at Woodhouse Lane in 2001

  3. I see Johann hit 3 sixes at Newlands -
    Unlike at Norden where he hit at least double figures
    Mind you I bet Newlands can’t boast a back yard at short mid on…………..

  4. Woodhouse Lane does have a similar backdrop to Newlands ….Knowle Moor v Table Mountain – easier to take your own booze in at Newlands tho’!
