Dolphins eager to come right in PE
Durban - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins are still well and truly in the hunt
for a Momentum One Day Cup play-off spot and will want to put their
recent performances behind them when they take on the Warriors at St
George's Park in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday.
With two losses from their last two games the Dolphins will be hoping to
put that right with just one game left after Wednesday's clash.
The Warriors beat the Dolphins in the first edition of this fixture at
Kingsmead but the side from PE is stuttering as the competition edges
closer to the business end and have also lost their last two matches in
Currently the Warriors sit in second place on the log just two points
ahead of the Dolphins which adds more spice to Wednesday's encounter in
the Friendly City.
Should the Dolphins win they will leapfrog the Warriors to 20 points
with one game to play in the round robin phase.
The Dolphins have relied fairly heavily on Sarel Erwee in recent times
as he has been their main source of runs with captain Khaya Zondo, Sibs
Makhanya and Vaughn van Jaarsveld making contributions.
The side will need both batting and bowling to click together in order
to beat a strong Warriors outfit.
From the bowling side, missing Robbie Frylinck has been a massive blow
for a young Dolphins seam attack. With Eathan Bosch, Kerwin Mungroo and
Okuhle Cele having to pick up the seam attack mantle they have learnt a
lot of lessons this season when Frylinck and Andile Phehlukwayo have
The Dolphins have had three spinners in their side throughout the
competition and Keshav Maharaj, Senuran Muthusamy and Prenelan Subrayen
have been crucial to their campaign thus far. The spin trio will
continue to carry the most responsibility with the seamers operating
Going into Wednesday's game the Dolphins will have the same squad of 15
to chose from as they had in Kimberley on Sunday.
The current log situation means that the Dolphins will need at least one
win from their next two games in order to qualify for the semi-finals.
Should the Dolphins and the WSB Cape Cobras win their next games in the
competition then the semi-final slots are sewn up, however should the
VKB Knights beat the Cobras on Thursday then there will still be five
teams in the hunt.
Hollywoodbets Dolphins v Warriors:
Sarel Erwee, Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Marques Ackerman, Dane Vilas, Khaya
Zondo (c), Sibz Makhanya, Senuran Muthusamy, Keshav Maharaj, Calvin
Savage, Eathan Bosch, Okuhle Cele, Prenelan Subrayen, Mthokozisi Shezi,
Kerwin Mungroo, Lwandiswa Zuma.
