Dolphins sweep Titans aside for third consecutive win
Durban – The Hollywoodbets Dolphins cruised to a convincing seven wicket
win over the Momentum Multiply Titans at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium
on Wednesday morning, taking their current winning streak to three matches
in the CSA 4-Day Domestic Series.
Following a poor start to the campaign the Dolphins have bounced back
since the re-start and have won their last three matches in the tournament
which revitalised their chances of winning the overall crown for a second
time in three seasons.
After restricting the Titans to 138 all out in their second innings, the
Dolphins needed 51 runs to win the match and started the final morning
with ten wickets in hand and 46 runs to win.
They lost the wickets of SJ Erwee, Marques Ackerman and Bryce Parsons
however it was Khaya Zondo and first innings hero Jason Smith who took the
Dolphins to a memorable victory on their home ground.
The renaissance of the Dolphins in the 4-Day series has been a positive
for SJ Erwee, who has taken over the captaincy of the Dolphins in the red
ball competition in the absence of Keshav Maharaj who is with the Proteas.
“We started really poorly in this competition but it’s really nice to have
three wins on the bounce now and the guys are really rolling with this
momentum,” Erwee said.
“Guys are doing the hard yards and are doing the correct preparation for
the opposition and the games we are playing.
“The next game for us is at home again and in our conditions is exactly
where we want to be.”
The Dolphins spinners Prenelan Subrayen and Jon-Jon Smuts finished the
match with combined figures of 19 for 222 with a run out being the only
dismissal not going to either of the spinners in the match.
Subrayen ended the match with career best innings and match figures of
7/52 and 11/97 respectively while Smuts took 5/67 in the second innings
and ended with match figures of 8/125.
Given the conditions and the pitch that was prepared for the encounter,
Erwee was happy with the efforts of the spinners.
“It was brilliant from Jon-Jon and Subs. They obviously know their role in
the team and they grabbed the opportunity to play in these conditions and
are fulfilling their roles to the best of their abilities and that’s all
we can ask for.”
The Dolphins welcome the North-West Dragons to Hollywoodbets Kingsmead
Stadium for their penultimate match of the CSA 4-Day Domestic Series
starting on 5 March.
