Calvin Savage ton boosts the Dolphins at the Bullring

Johannesburg - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins kept a firm grip on their vital Sunfoil Series clash with the bizhub Highveld Lions at Bidvest Wanderers on Saturday, anchored by a thrilling maiden century from Calvin Savage.

Resuming on an overnight 318/7, an effective lead of 72, the Durban side's tail wagged impressively, driving them on to a first innings total of 379, giving them a first innings lead of 133.

Calvin Savage was the star of the morning session. Resuming on 48, he went on to a stylish century off just 97 deliveries, mimicking the blitz century scored by Dane Vilas earlier in the innings.

It was Savage's maiden first class ton, bettering the 94 he notched up against the Cobras at Newlands earlier in the season.

Savage was the last wicket to fall in the Hollywoodbets Dolphins' innings, after he had struck Dwaine Pretorius for two sixes and four in the 85th over, before he miscued a pull off Beuran Hendricks and was caught at deep mid wicket for exactly 100.

The home side set about trying to erode the 133 run deficit, with Stephen Cook and Reeza Hendricks adding 128 for the first wicket before debutant Okhule Cele trapped Cook lbw for 51.

Hendricks went on to register his century before spinner Prenelen Subrayen dismissed him, trapped lbw, for 112.

Subrayen also accounted for Dominic Hendricks, caught by man-of-the-moment Savage for 1, while Kerwin Mungroo ended Omphile Ramela's knock of 37.

The Lions will start the final day of this intruiging clash at the Bullring on 221/4, an affective lead of 88 runs with six second innings wickets in hand.
