Spurs continue to dominate DPL 2019
Durban - Another clean sweep of wins for the Gap Debt Solutions
Pietermaritzburg Spurs saw them consolidate their position at the top of
the Hollywoodbets Dolphins Premier League presented by Aucor in
Amanzimtoti this past weekend.
The T20 games on Saturday were slightly affected by some adverse weather
and the first game of the weekend saw an exciting tie between the
Hollywoodbets eThekwini Hurricanes and the Jooma Properties Zulu Kings.
The Pietermaritzburg Spurs continued their winning ways with a three
wicket win against the AFFA Holdings Tugela Sharks on Saturday before
they beat the Aucor Durban Chiefs and the Fat Henry Drakensberg Thunder
With 32 points from their first six games of the competition they are
guaranteed a spot in next weekend's play-off's, but they will have a
meeting with the eThekwini Hurricanes on Saturday before they can focus
on Sunday's semi-final.
The Durban Chiefs tried to put pressure on the table-toppers but with
two wins and a loss from the weekend's games they are still eleven
points adrift of Spurs.
The big movers of the weekend were the Mobi Cell East Coast Wizards who
jumped two places from fifth to third.
They managed to claim two victories this past weekend, one with a bonus
point, which sees them in line for a play-off with one game to go
against basement dwellers the Synergy Umgeni Rhinos next weekend.
Rounding out the play-off spots are the AFFA Holdings Tugela Sharks.
The Sharks stay in fourth place on the log, consolidating the position
they held after the opening weekend after they registered a win and a
loss in the weekend's action.
They do have two games to play on the final Saturday of round robin
games next weekend. They take on the Fat Henry Drakensberg Thunder and
then the Aucor Durban Chiefs.
For the bottom four sides there is still a good possibility that things
in the top half could change. With five points for a win there is plenty
of wiggle room for the Drakensberg Thunder and the Jooma Properties Zulu
Kings - who both have two games in hand.
Should the Kings and the Thunder win their matches on Saturday morning,
then the final game between the two sides on Saturday afternoon at the
Maritzburg Varsity Cricket Oval will be an effective quarter final.
The Hurricanes have got one game left against the log leading Spurs on
Saturday morning to decide their fate for the rest of the competition.
Nothing less than a win will do for the defending champions.
The Synergy Umgeni Rhinos have one more match left in the competition
against the Wizards to salvage some pride and register a win.
There were a number of strong performances throughout the weekend.
Hollywoodbets Dolphins wicket-keeper/batsman Grant Roelofsen registered
the highest score of the weekend with 96 not out for the Hurricanes
against the Chiefs.
Dolphins all-rounder Sibz Makhanya was in good form with both the bat
and the ball. He helped rocket the Wizards into the play-off places.
Prenelan Subrayen scored 68 not out for the Zulu Kings while Eathan
Bosch made 87 in a match-winning effort from the Thunder.
Young Andile Simelane showed his potential for the Durban Chiefs as they
push for a semi-final spot while captain of the Spurs Calvin Savage
continued his good form with the bat.
The final Saturday of round robin games will return to Pietermaritzburg
as the Pietermaritzburg Oval and the UKZN Varisty Oval host the final
The semi-finals and the final will take place at Kingsmead Stadium this
