Mungroo’s debut five-for gives Dolphins a fighting chance

Durban - A first franchise five-for from Kerwin Mungroo helped the Hollywoodbets Dolphins bowl the Warriors out for 204, and claw their way back into their Sunfoil Series clash in Port Elizabeth on Friday.

The Warriors were on top of the Durban-based outfit at the start of day two when they needed 45 runs to erase the Dolphins first innings.

Starting day two on 100/4, the Warriors’ Yaseen Vallie (42) and Lesiba Ngoepe (45) put on 81 crucial runs for the fifth wicket before the latter fell to Senuran Muthusamy.

Vallie then followed a few balls later, trapped LBW off Muthusamy. This left the hosts 144/6, trailing the Dolphins by one run.

Ayabulela Gqamane’s 42 from 43 balls at the death helped propel the Warriors past 200 as they were bowled out for 204.

Mungroo’s 5/54 along with Muthusamy’s two wickets and one from Rob Frylinck, Mthokozisi Shezi and Keshav Maharaj helped keep the deficit at 59.

A circumspect start from the Dolphins saw their second innings move along to 90 before they lost their first wicket when Morné van Wyk was caught for 58.

His opening partner Sarel Erwee followed next, bowled by Tladi Bokako for 52 from 137 balls.

Senuran Muthusamy didn’t contribute much in the second innings following his 41 in the first innings, as he was LBW to Simon Harmer for one.

Sibz Makhanya joined Vanughn van Jaarsveld at the crease and the pair went about building a strong partnership towards the end of the second day's play.

The two put on 84 unbeaten runs for the fourth wicket to take the Dolphins' lead to 149 heading into the third day.

Van Jaarsveld will resume on 51 and Makhanya will return to crease on 39.
