Muthusamy back for Dolphins trip to Joburg
Durban – With two draws and a loss on their record, the Hollywoodbets
Dolphins will welcome back Senuran Muthusamy to the squad for their CSA
4-Day Domestic Series clash with the Imperial Lions at Imperial Wanderers
starting on Monday.
It has been a tough competition so far for the Dolphins who have had to
work hard for their draws. A shining light has been Cody Chetty with bat
as he has played two crucial second innings knocks to save the Dolphins.
The Dolphins will go into the clash with a new captain in the form of
Marques Ackerman. Ackerman has been a stand-out with the bat in the time
that he has been with the Dolphins and will take the reins for the first
time in Johannesburg.
To also add the likes of Muthusamy into that middle order will be crucial
and coach Imraan Khan knows how much value he will add with the ball as
“Sen has been one of the leading spinners in domestic cricket for a number
of seasons now and he will add huge value with the bat,” Khan said.
“His bowling is going to be vital for us but to have him in the middle
order is also going to be a major plus for us.”
There are a number of other changes in the squad for the trip with Keith
Dudgeon coming into the squad for the first time this season. Dudgeon has
just recovered from a shoulder injury and will look to put his hand up in
Okuhle Cele comes back into the squad after a break while Sibz Makhanya
has recovered to take his place in the squad after missing out in
Pietermaritzburg this week.
The defending champion Lions are always going to be a tough team to beat
at home and Khan believes that his side are raring to go as they hope to
take twenty wickets in the next four day.
“The guys are still highly motivated to do well this coming week. The guys
are excited and eager for the challenge that is coming up.
“We want to finish this part of the season with a good win but it is going
to be tough against the defending champions on their home ground, but we
are looking forward to it,” Khan added.
