Cobras hand Dolphins first MODC defeat
Pietermaritzburg - In a game that was shortened by rain, the World
Sports Betting Cape Cobras beat the Hollywoodbets Dolphins by five runs in
their Momentum One Day Cup clash at the Pietermaritzburg Oval on Sunday.
Bowling first, the Dolphins had good batting from the Cobras to deal with
early on as Pieter Malan and Zubyr Hamza took advantage of a good batting
wicket in the early stages.
The pair put on 109 for the second wicket before Malan was dismissed for
71 from 81 balls with the score on 143 in the 27th over of the innings.
Jason Smith chipped in with 29 runs while George Linde scored a quick-fire
49 off just 28 balls as the Cobras looked set to post something in excess
Hamza went to a first List-A hundred off 115 balls which included six
fours. He was eventually bowled by a pin-point yorker from Kerwin Mungroo
Dane Paterson was the final wicket to fall for the Cobras, caught off the
bowling of Rob Frylinck for a single.
The Cobras eventually finished with 320 for six in their 50 overs.
The Dolphins innings started strongly with Sarel Erwee and the in-form
Grant Roelofsen putting on 74 for the first wicket before Erwee was
dismissed for 30 off 35 balls.
Roelofsen and Vaughn van Jaarsveld then combined to put together 68 for
the second wicket before Van Jaarsveld fell for 41 off 40 balls.
During their stand the players left the field for a rain delay which
truncated the match the a 43 over chase where they needed to chase 286.
The break seemed to benefit the visitors as they picked up the wickets of
Van Jaarsveld and Marques Ackerman in quick succession leaving the
Dolphins 157 for three after 26 overs.
Roelofsen went past 50 as he continued his rich run of form, however when
he was on 69 he was bowled by Jason Smith. His innings took 80 balls and
consisted of five fours and two sixes.
Sibz Makhanya was dismissed for a duck and Rob Frylinck and Khaya Zondo
kept the Dolphins in the hunt with a stand of 63 from seven overs.
Frylinck scored 32 from 26 balls while Zondo made 44 from 42 deliveries,
however when they were dismissed with the score on 235 and 255
respectively, the Dolphins chances fell away.
Keshav Maharaj made 14 off ten balls while Prenelan Subrayen was dismissed
for duck as the Dolphins finished on 280 for nine from their 43 overs.
