Pukke hit 63 sixes and 48 fours in their innings to achieve the massive total.
In their reply, Potch Dorp 1st managed only 290 runs with the fall of 9 wickets by the end of their 50 overs. Dadswell returned with the ball to show his skills, as he took 3 wickets in seven overs, and gave away mere 32 runs. His efforts achieved his club a victory by a whopping 387 runs.
