Two from two for the Dolphins in the T20 Knock Out

Bloemfontein - A late blitz with the ball from Daryn Dupavillon and a composed debut knock from Jason Smith saw the Hollywoodbets Dolphins consolidate their spot on the top of Pool C with an eight wicket win over Easterns Storm on Saturday.

Easterns made a fist of their run chase as they were with the rate for the majority of the innings however six wickets in the last four overs saw the Dolphins home in what was a tough encounter at the Manguang Oval.

Dupavillion was left to defend thirteen off the final over of the chase and picked up two wickets while only conceding four runs to help his side to a narrow victory which sets them up well ahead of their final clash on Sunday.

Even more impressive was the fact that Dupavillon only conceded eleven runs in his four overs.

Ottniel Baartman continued his good form with figures of two for 28 while there were wickets for Jason Smith, Prenelan Subrayen and Bryce Parsons.

The Dolphins innings never quite kicked into top gear with the pitch and some good, disciplined bowling from Easterns keeping them from launching towards that 170 or 180 mark.

Sarel Erwee continued his good start to the competition when he scored a fluent 28 before he was caught behind.

Thamsanqa Khumalo was bowled for just five and Grant Roelofsen hit some lusty blows in his eighteen off ten balls.

The middle order scored the bulk of the runs for the Dolphins with Marques Ackerman making 23, Khaya Zondo 25 and Jason Smith, in his first innings for the Dolphins, top scored with 45 not out off 34 deliveries.

Smith's innings was crucial in the Dolphins getting over the 150 mark as they finished on 155 for six in their 20 overs.

Summary of the Score
Hollywoodbets Dolphins 155/6 (J Smith 45*)
Eastern Storm 147/8 (D Dupavillon 3/11)
Dolphins win by eight runs
