Dolphins go down despite Erwee ton
Pietermaritzburg - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins went down to the WSB Cape
Cobras by eight wickets in their Momentum One Day Cup clash in
Pietermaritzburg on Saturday despite a first hundred of the campaign for
With 28 overs to bat, the Dolphins had a brilliant 116 from 82 balls from
Sarel Erwee to thank as they ended on 218 for six in their innings.
Erwee’s hundred included 13 fours and four sixes as he was supported by a
38 from Vaughn van Jaarsveld while captain Khaya Zondo got 29 off 26
Unfortunately for the Dolphins Janneman Malan was in fine form and scored
a match-winning hundred as he and captain JP Duminy took their side home
with two overs to spare.
Malan scored 115 not out off 83 balls while Duminy ended 74 not out off 56
Their partnership for the third wicket was worth 162 runs.
The wicket takers for the Dolphins were Calvin Savage and Kerwin Mungroo
who picked up the wickets of George Linde and Pieter Malan respectively.
Speaking after the game coach Grant Morgan believes that the seam bowling
is an area that needs to be improved on going forward.
"Our spin attack is our strength but we just need to button up our seam
attack by hitting better areas and making them hit us off our areas
instead of giving away soft boundaries," Morgan said.
"We need to just keep muscling down and trying to get it right."
Erwee has been on the outside of the starting XI for the opening part of
the competition and returned to form last week with a fifty but Morgan is
happy that the left-hander managed to get a significant score on Saturday.
"Sarel was playing consistently during the four day campaign and he had a
few things he needed to sort out in his head.
"He played a great knock last week and was superb on Saturday in front of
his family on his home ground."
The Dolphins take on the Multiply Titans in their next Momentum One Day
Cup match on 15 March in Durban.

Hollywoodbets Dolphins 218 for six (Erwee 116 Van Jaarsveld 38)
