Chetty enables Dolphins draw in Bloem

Durban - An unbeaten 90 from Cody Chetty in the second innings helped the Hollywoodbets Dolphins secure a draw against the VKB Knights in their 4-Day Domestic Series clash in Bloemfontein.

The Dolphins were in a precarious position going into the final day on Thursday, needing 136 runs to make the Knights bat again.

It started poorly for the Durban side as they lost Jason Oakes and night watchman Smangaliso Nhlebela early and found themselves seventeen for three.

First innings runs scorer Marques Ackerman fell for 17 and the Dolphins were four down for 51.

Cody Chetty and the captain Khaya Zondo then put on 91 for the fifth wicket, but more importantly they occupied the crease for an extended period.

Zondo was dismissed for a patient 39 and then Sibz Makhanya, who followed, also scored 39. His 39, along with Chetty’s continued contribution, took the Dolphins past the magical 136 mark.

Makhanya fell with the score on 207 and from there both captains shook hands with a draw the end result.

Chetty was the man not out on 90. He faced 201 deliveries and hit seven boundaries.

The Dolphins now return home to face the WSB Cape Cobras at the Pietermaritzburg Oval starting on Monday.
