Tough fight for Dolphins on day one in PMB
Pietermaritzburg - The Hollywoodberts Dolphins were made to fight hard
for all of their 282 runs that they got on their curtailed opening day
of their Sunfoil Series clash with the WSB Cape Cobras at the
Pietermaritzburg Oval on Thursday.
The light had the final say on the first day as the players came from
the field with 28 overs of the allocated 96 overs still to be bowled.
It was a tricky start for the Dolphins as they lost Morné van Wyk early
on in the piece when he was trapped in front of the bowling of
Mthiwekhaya Nabe for a duck which meant the Dolphins were 12/1 in the
A partnersjip between opener Sarel Erwee and Vaughn van Jaarsveld then
ensued with the pair finding the boundary fairly regularly as they took
the score past 50 before Erwee was caught down the legside by wicket
keeper Kyle Verreynne off the bowling of Tsepo Moreki for a typically
Van Jaarsveld continued on his effortless way as stroked the ball to all
parts of the ground and looked to be set for a long stay at the crease.
Unfortunately for the Dolphins they lost captain Khaya Zondo (4) cheaply
and then Van Jaarsveld fell two runs later for 44 when nicked a delivery
from Dane Piedt to Verreynne.
This left the men from Durban in a spot of bother on 75/4 with
all-rounder Senuran Muthusamy and Dane Vilas at the wicket.
The middle-order stars then went about rebuilding the Dolphins' innnings
and both were patient initially in how they went about digging their
side out of the hole they had got into, after winning the toss and
Muthusamy showed why he has become indeispensable for the Dolphins this
season with a patient 34 before he was caught by veteran Andrew Puttick
off Moreki after lunch.
With the score on 151/5 Vilas continued to be his positive self as he
went to another half century. He fell to Dane Paterson for 70 from 76
deliveries with the score on 189.
Sibz Makhanya was done by a terrific yorker from Paterson that saw him
on his way LBW for 12 and then Prenelan Subrayen fell to Piedt, also
LBW, for two with the score on 207/8.
Rob Frylinck then found himself a more than willing partner in the
returning Rabian Engelbrecht and the pair took their side to 268/8 at
the tea break.
Unfortunately for the Dolphins Engelbrech fell in the first over after
the tea break for 20.
Following the ninth wicket, Kerwin Mungroo hung around with Frylinck
before the umpires called the players from the field due to bad light.
The Dolphins will continue on day two on 282/9.
