KZN Coastal Women's side off to winning start
Durban - Hollywoodbets KwaZulu-Natal Coastal Women's Provincial team
kicked off the 2019/20 season with back-to-back victories over their
Free State counterparts in the CSA Womenís Provincial League and CSA
Womenís Provincial T20 Competition at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead this past
The home side bagged a seven-wicket win followed by a three-run victory
over their opponents in the double-header on Saturday and Sunday.
Energised by the announcement of Hollywoodbets as a new sponsor, the KZN
women got off to a good start as the coin fell in favour of captain
Nondumiso Shangase in their fifty-over clash.
It was a spirited effort from the KZN Women as they backed the captainís
decision to field first and had Free State reeling on 32/2 after 10
overs. The women from Bloemfontein continued to struggle as the tight
bowling from KZN prevented them from gaining any momentum.
Shangase introduced herself into the attack and made immediate inroads
as she claimed the wicket of Izabela Cilliers for 11 in the 16th over.
In the following over, opening bowler Dheyanka Naidoo came back into the
attack and claimed her second wicket of the day.
The Hollywoodbets women never took their foot off the pedal claiming the
last five Free State wickets for just nine runs, restricting them to 89
all out in 42.4 overs.
Shangase lead from the front and was the pick of the bowlers going for
just seventeen runs in her ten overs, picking up four wickets. Naidoo
and Nonkululeko Mlaba chipped in with two wickets apiece.
Needing just under three an over, the KZN Women made light work of the
chase. Trisha Chetty (41) and Shangase (18) combined for a healthy 56
run partnership to seal the fate of their opponents.
Nicole de Klerk and Dinesha Devanrain saw the KZN Women home in the 18th
On Sunday, the two sides shifted focus to T20 cricket. After winning the
toss, Free State opted to field first.
Chetty continued to show good form blasting her way to 74 off 46 balls
in an innings that included seven fours and one six.
Chetty was also involved in a 78 run stand with Shangase. Some solid
batting from Devnarain saw the KZN Women finish on a competitive 135/5
after the allocated twenty overs.
The match proved to be a nail-biting encounter as Free Stateís Yolandi
Potgieter made 64 off 48 deliveries.
However, Devnarainís experience prevailed as she claimed the crucial
wicket of Potgieter. The pressure form KZN told after that as the Free
State Women lost four wickets at the back end for just three runs.
Brilliant skill at the death from Jade de Figueredo saw her finish
outstanding figures of 4/14 in four overs, as they completed a the
three-run victory to seal off a good weekend.
Speaking after the weekend's action coach Denisha Devnarain was proud of
how her team started the season.
"I want to start by saying how proud I am of all the women, including
those that came to support us over the weekend," Devnarain said.
"It's really a great feeling to have two wins under the belt. The work
ethic was incredible leading into the fixture and they delivered and
executed accordingly to plan.
"The bowlers did a fantastic job over the weekend and it would have been
great to have a ten wicket win in the fifty over game but I'll take the
win and as a unit we will always look to improve."
