Solid day one for the Dolphins in Bloem
Durban - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins showed signs of their potent batting
ability during the opening day of the CSA 4-Day Domestic Series clash
with the VKB Knights at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein, as they
finished the day on 333 for seven.
Batting first the Dolphins lost the dangerous Vaughn van Jaarsveld for
13, however it was youngsters Marques Ackerman and Jason Oakes who
steadied the ship after the early loss.
The pair put on 87 runs for the second wicket with Oakes continuing on
from his half century last week. He was eventually caught by Knights
captain Pite van Biljoen off the bowling of leg-spinner Shaun von Berg
Ackerman seemed to be in a fluent mood as he caressed the Knights
bowling to all parts on his way to a second half century in three
innings. He looked well on track for a first hundred of the season but
fell for 88 off just 96 deliveries.
Cody Chetty was also in good shape and he and Ackerman added 73 runs for
the third wicket before the latter was dismissed.
Chetty also fell short of a milestone, he was bowled by Gerald Coetzee
for 48. Coetzee then bagged the wicket of Sibz Makhanya the very next
delivery and the Dolphins were pegged back to 194 for five.
Captain Khaya Zondo was watchful as he and the returning Robbie Frylinck
began to rebuild the middle of the innings.
The combination put together another strong partnership for the Dolphins
that yielded 127 runs before Frylinck was dismissed for 78.
Prenelan Subrayen become the second first ball victim of the innings,
caught by the keeper off the bowling of Coetzee.
Captain Zondo registered a crucial half century, finishing the day on 63
not out. It was a patient knock from Zondo who will continue in the
morning with Smangaliso Nhlebela who was two not out at the close of play.
