AB de Villiers led from the front as Eagles won the inaugural edition of the 3TC Solidarity Cup on Saturday. The innovative 3 Team Cricket marked the return of live sport in South Africa for the first time since March. The match was put together to raise funds for the Hardship Fund, a joint Cricket South Africa (CSA) project aimed at providing relief to those affected by COVID-19.


The Eagles got profited from a swashbuckling knock by De Villiers and his century stand with Aiden Markram went a long way towards cementing the gold medal for their side.

ABD smashed a 24-ball 61 while Markram registered a score of 70 from 33 balls and helped their side score 160/4 across the two halves of six overs each that they faced.


The Eagles were 22 runs ahead of the 138/3 posted by silver medalists Kites and 47 ahead of the Kingfishers (113/5), the team that won the bronze.

During the match, De Villiers saw his shoe coming out in a funny turn of events as he tried to run for a single of the bowling of young Thando Ntini.

Here’s the video:



Earlier, ahead of the start of the match, all players and officials showed their support towards the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement as they wore black armbands and then took a knee in support of the campaign.
