Dolphins toil on day two in PMB
Pietermaritzburg - The second day of the Sunfoil Series clash between
the Hollywoodbets Dolphins and the Multiply Titans at the
Pietermaritzburg Oval followed a similar pattern as the first with the
bat dominating the contest on Tuesday.
The Titans resumed their innings on 205/2 with opener Dean Elgar
unbeaten on 88 overnight and he continued his rich vein of form on
Tuesday, notching up a solid double century, 237 not out. He was well

Senuran Muthusamy was the pick of the bowlers taking 2/65 in 25 overs,
while there were wickets for Mungroo and off-spinner Prenelan Subrayen.

by the wicket-keeper Klaasen off the bowling of Bosch.
Senuran Muthusamy (16*) and the in-form Vaughn van Jaarsveld (11*) then
