One fifty in only four first-class innings for Western Province shows that Solomons knows the front from the back of a cricket bat. Contracted ahead of Lance Bleekers for the back-up wicketkeeping position, Solomons played for the senior side against the Australians and performed adequately, picking up 3 catches behind the stumps. Although he managed to score 33 runs in the second innings, it was an innings which was more a testament to tenacity than to strokeplay.
