Dolphins fight back despite Linde six-for
Durban - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins would have been disappointed with
their first innings but managed to pick up two WSB Cape Cobras wickets
before the close of play on day one of their 4-Day Domestic Series match
in Oudtshoorn on Monday.
The Dolphins won the toss on Monday and elected to bat first with the
opening pair of Sarel Erwee and Grant Roelofsen making a cautious start
to the innings before Erwee became George Linde’s first victim in the
tenth over for nine.
The top order of the visitors never got going with Marques Ackerman
falling for a single, Vaughn van Jaarsveld for thirteen and Roelofsen
for sixteen. At that stage the Dolphins were 45 for four in the 26th
over of the innings.
With the score on 61 Cody Chetty was bowled by Dane Paterson which
brought Andile Phehlukwayo to the crease to join a stubborn Senuran
Muthusamy and the pair began an important rebuilding phase to the
The duo put on 97 for the sixth wicket with Phehlukwayo scoring 63 vital
runs off 83 balls to take the Dolphins past the 150 run mark. He was the
sixth wicket to fall when Mthiwekhaya Nabe had him caught by Jason
Linde continued to pick up wickets regularly and then bagged the patient
Muthusamy for 37.
Mangaliso Mosehle and Daryn Dupavillon fell in consecutive deliveries to
Linde handing him another first-class five-for. The left-arm spinner
ended with six for 51 in 22 overs.
Kerwin Mungroo was the last batsman out for a duck when he was LBW to
Dane Piedt and the Dolphins were bowled out for 174.
The Cobras started like a house on fire with the bat and had notched up
thirty without loss after just five overs, however some disciplined
bowling from the Dolphins spinners pegged the hosts' batsmen back.
It was Senuran Muthusamy who picked up the crucial wicket of Janneman
Malan for twenty when he threatened to get away from the Dolphins.
It was off-spinner Prenelan Subrayen who bagged the second wicket when he
dismissed Matthew Kleinveldt for twelve with the score on 33.
The hosts went into the close on 55 for two trailing the Dolphins by 119
