Dolphins fall to dominant Lions in JHB

Durban - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins fell to an innings and fifteen run defeat to an impressive Imperial Lions team in their CSA 4-Day Domestic Series match at the Imperial Wanderers on Thursday.

The Lions had been dominant throughout and the Dolphins were in need of some big scores to try and save the match on the final day as they were still 87 runs adrift with just five second innings wickets in hand.

The final morning seemed to be going according to plan for the visitors as the overnight batsmen Sibz Makhanya and Andile Phehlukwayo negotiated the first period.

However Makhanya was the first victim after they had added 26 runs in the morning. He was adjudged LBW to Malusi Siboto for a well played 76.

Seven runs later Phehlukwayo was dismissed for twelve. The Dolphins were 181 for seven at this stage, still 54 runs away from making the Lions bat again.

Keith Dudgeon and Rob Frylinck put together fifteen before the former was dismissed for thirteen off just eleven balls.

Frylinck stood firm at the other end as he lost Lwandiswa Zuma for five off 44 balls.

The big all rounder was the last wicket to fall. He was caught behind for 28 and the Dolphins were bowled out for 245.

The end of the innings gave the Lions victory by an innings and fifteen runs.

The Dolphins will now take a break as the Mzansi Super League takes centre stage with the 4-Day Domestic Series resuming on 19 December when the Hollywoodbets Dolphins face the Warriors at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead.
