Campher’s brilliant batting wins him hero accolade - Day 3
Curtis Campher from Gauteng has been named the Coca-Cola Hero of the Day for day 3 of the 2017 Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket Week.
The prestigious Coca-Cola Hero of the Day award is presented on each day of the tournament in recognition of a game changing ‘hero’ moment. Curtis was selected for the award by a Coca-Cola appointed panel of cricket experts after he batted brilliantly when his team needed him most. Curtis came to the crease when Mpumalanga had Gauteng 12 for 5 and he batted well to score 48 not out and managed to get his team to 115 for 6, which proved to be a winning total.
“It is a real honor to win this award. My main aim in this tournament is to do my best for my team. The boys are doing well and I would like us to continue to put good performances together,” Campher said.
“Well done to Curtis Campher for winning the Coca-Cola Hero of the Day award for his brilliant 48 not out against Mpumalanga, coming in when his team were 12 for 5,” said Proteas legend and Coca-Cola Hero of the Day panel lead Victor Mpitsang.
Phindile Phiri, Coca-Cola Africa’s Senior Communications Manager commented, “We are halfway through the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket Week and we have already seen many heroic moments. Today we changed formats to T20 cricket and a lot of the boys excelled in the new format. Curtis stepped up to the plate for his team and we are proud to call him our Coca-Cola Hero of the Day.”
