Dolphins to host MODC final
Durban - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins dismantled the WSB Cape Cobras by 49
runs on Wednesday at PPC Newlands, to book themselves a spot in the
Momentum One Day Cup final at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Friday against
A splendid all-round bowling performance from the Dolphins after they set
the hosts a modest 231 runs to win the game, meant that the men from Cape
Town battled to get a vital partnership together in their chase.
The Dolphins were put into bat on Wednesday evening with a spot in a home
final on the line, and openers Morné van Wyk and Sarel Erwee couldn't have
given their side a better start to the innings.
Their opening partnership has become formidable through this season's
Momentum One Day Cup and they put together 126 for the first wicket before
Van Wyk chopped on a delivery from George Linde for 62 from 72 balls.
From there the Dolphins dug themselves into a fairly deep pit when Vaughn
van Jaarsveld was run out for seven and Dane Vilas followed soon after for
It got worse for the men from Durban as Sibz Makhanya was the next man to
fall to a spectacular slip catch from Aviwe Mgijima for eight and the
Dolphins were 148/4 in the 30th over of their innings. They had lost four
crucial wickets for 22 runs.
Erwee found a partner in Senuran Muthusamy and the duo put on 43 runs
before Muthusamy holed out to deep square-leg for 20.
It was Erwee who continued to hold the innings together until he fell,
after captain Keshav Maharaj came and went, when he was caught by keeper
Kyle Verreynne off a Mthiwekhaya Nabe delivery for another solid 93 from
With the total on 214/7 the Dolphins, Rob Frylinck's run-a-ball 14 helped
his side to 230 all out.
Mthokozisi Shezi and Frylinck were accurate with the new ball reduced the
Cobras to just 21/3 after the first nine overs.
Frylinck picked up the first wicket when trapped the in-form Pieter Malan
in front for four. Shezi then got in on the act dismissing Simon Khomari
Verreynne was then run out two overs later for six before opener Zubary
Hamza and Veron Philander started to build a partnership.
Off-spinner Prenelan Subrayen then came in and picked up both the wickets
of Philander (26) and Hamza (26) in the same over.
After 18 overs the Cobras were 57/5, still needing 174 runs to win.
Dane Piedt and George Linde (19) and then Dane Paterson gave the
Capetonians a glimmer of hope when they took their side to with 60 runs of
Piedt put together his best Momentum One Day Cup score as his 57 gave the
Cobras a slight sniff but when he went with the score 175 with only one
wicket left to get for the Dolphins.
A great catch from Dane to dismiss Paterson for 29 off Shezi sewed up the
Cobras innings for 181 in the 47th over.
The Dolphins spinners Prenelan Subrayen and Senuran Muthusamy were
instrumental when they both picked up two wickets.
Mthokozisi Shezi was also in the wickets when he grabbed two; however Rob
Frylinck was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/21 in nine overs.
