Coastal in Potch for next assignment

Durban – The Hollywoodbets KZN Coastal squad will remain unchanged when they tackle the North West Dragons in the next round of the CSA 3-Day Cup and 1-Day Cup campaigns at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom starting on Thursday.

The semi-professional side, who are current holders of the CSA 3-Day Cup trophy, drew their opening match of the campaign last week against Border with weather stifling their efforts while they won the 50 over contest against the same opposition on Sunday.

“We have selected the same 12 players for this encounter in Potch and we are of the opinion that the team were unlucky not to get the result they deserved against Border last week in the three day game,” commented assistant coach Thokozani Zulu.

“The weather did spoil any chance of a result, but this week sees some players going in with confidence, as there were some good performances.”

The Coastal boys displayed some good fighting spirit in their first three day game of the season and are hoping to keep the momentum going into their clash with North West.

“The fielding was spectacular from the boys, getting five run outs in the two games.

“We are a competitive unit and will look to equal that display if not improve on it.

“The bowling attack will need to be up for the fight this week and show a little more patience.”

There were a number of solid contributions with the bat in both the red ball and white ball encounters against Border, however Zulu believes the side can improve on those.

“The batting unit were not quite at their best with two good contributions from Blyde Capell (98) and Brad Porteous (60). The team will be hoping for these two to do well again, but we want the other batters to contribute in a big way.”

Hollywoodbets KZN Coastal Squad:
Khalipha Cele (Captain), Brad Porteous, Ziphozokuthula Zondo, Smangaliso Nhlebela, Michael Erlank, Tyron Koen, Zakariya Paruk, Blayde Capell, Daryn Dupavillon, Keith Dudgeon, Thula Ngcobo, Marques Ackerman.
