Dolphins fall short of Titans in PMB
Pietermairtzburg - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins slumped to their second
defeat in three days when they lost to the Multiply Titans in their
Momentum One Day Cup clash at the Pietermaritzburg Oval on Sunday.
The Dolphins put the Titans in to bat and the visitors made a solid start
as their openers Heino Kuhn and Tony de Zorzi put together 79 valuable
runs before the latter was caught by Mthokozisi Shezi off the bowling of
The men from Durban would have felt confident after the Titans were 88/3
in the 22nd over. They then fell to 127/5 before Farhaan Behardien played
a gem of a knock to pull the Titans out of a spot of bother and get them
close to their final total of 242.
Behardien's 88 came from 80 deliveries with three fours and three
maximums. He eventually fell at the death in a bid to push the total close
Wickets were shared amongst the Dolphins bowlers with Shezi picking up
two, Imran Tahir two and one each for Calvin Savage, Sibz Makhanya and
The Dolphins' run chase started brightly with Morné van Wyk racing to 17
in no time before he was caught at third man. Sarel Erwee continued to
look asured as he stroked his way to a mature half century. He eventually
fell for 76 off 101 balls.
There were contributions throughout, but the Dolphins couldn't put
together that divisive partnership and lost wickets too regularly as they
were bundled out for 213 in the 48th over.
Dane Vilas (23), Prenelan Subrayen (21) and 36 from a under the weather
captain Khaya Zondo threatened to get the Dolphins over the line, but a
flurry of wickets at the end cut them short of the target.
The Hollywoodbets Dolphins will return to Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on
Wednesday, 24 January for a clash with the bizhub Highveld Lions.
