But the Ghanaians came back strongly in the fourth chukker by pulling one back, however, the visitors’ superiority and experience helped Lionel Foster to score the match winner at the stroke of match time. Amid pomp and pageantry, the polo match couldn’t have served a more competitive game which was rightly acknowledged by the South African High Commissioner to Ghana, Jeanette Ndhlovu, who showered praise on both team after the game.“I’m proud to witness a good game today.
