Whirlwind weekend ahead for Dolphins
Durban – A disappointing CSA T20 Challenge loss on Wednesday evening for
the Hollywoodbets Dolphins can quickly be put right when they embark on
a two game tour with matches against the Multiply Titans in Benoni on
Friday and the WSB Cape Cobras on Sunday in Cape Town.
The Dolphins went down to the bizhub Highveld Lions by 18 runs in their
second match of the campaign and will have the chance to get back to
winning ways on the road.
The Titans are their first opposition and the men from the capital got a
good bonus point win over the Cobras in Benoni on Wednesday.
A return to form for veteran Morné van Wyk will be encouraging for the
Dolphins ahead of the trip to the Highveld. The experienced batsman
scored 44 effortless runs in vain as the Dolphins fell short of the
target on Wednesday.
The 40 year-old is happy that he is contributing to the side.
“I have felt pretty good this season I just feel that I need to get some
time in the middle,” Van Wyk said.
“I am happy to get the opportunity to go out there up front and I was
happy that I could give us some impetuous and momentum at the start on
“T20 is a format that I enjoy playing and I am looking forward to the
rest of the competition.”
With such a busy schedule and the games coming thick and fast, Van Wyk
believes there is still time for the side to get into their stride
“It’s still early in the competition and it’s a good time to learn the
lessons that we did on Wednesday rather than later in the campaign.
“We still have time to get the right combinations together to execute
our game plan the best,” he added.
With three games in the next six days the schedule is jam-packed but
with the games being fast-paced and short, the quick turnaround is not a
“Look, to be honest T20 cricket isn’t too taxing on the body,” he
explained. “For me the best thing would be to get on the road and keep
“We knew that this is what we were going to encounter so the prep work
is done, it’s now just a case of going out there and playing good
The Dolphins will still be without the services of Proteas all-rounder
Andile Phehlukwayo who is recovering from a foot injury.
The star player has been back at training for the Dolphins and his
return is expected sooner rather than later.
The squad that has been announced will do battle in Benoni and then will
travel to Cape Town for the match on Sunday.
