Dolphins back on track with Knights win
Durban - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins registered their second win of the
current CSA 4-Day Domestic Series with a five wicket win over the VKB
Knights at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium.
The Dolphins produced a clinical display with the ball in the morning
session on day three with the Knights in a position to sting the Dolphins
should they get in.
At 150 for two overnight the Dolphins struck early when Daryn Dupavillon
had night watchman Migael Pretorius well caught behind by Mangaliso
Mosehle for eight.
Just fifteen runs later and the Dolphins have the Knights' fourth wicket
when Prenelan Subrayen bowled Patrick Botha for six. Just a run later and
the Dolphins were well on top when the inform Matthew Kleinveldt was well
run-out by Khaya Zondo for 77.
The Knights were 172 for five, leading by 35 runs.
The last five wickets for the Knights only yielded 41 runs with Dupavillon
bagging three wickets and Senuran Muthusamy picking up two of them.
Ultimately the visitors were bowled out for 213 and set the Dolphins 77
runs to win the match.
The stand-out again for the hosts was Dupavillon who finished with figures
of four for 66. This gave him match figures of 11 for 104 which are his
career-best match figures in first-class cricket.
Muthusamy added to his two first innings wickets with three in the second
innings as he returned figures of three for 45.
The Dolphins in their chase lost wickets fairly regularly but Keegan
Pietersen remained the rock of the innings as they made relatively heavy
weather of the 77 runs to win.
Eventually the side got over the line five wickets down with Pietersen not
out on 28 and Mangaliso Mosehle unbeaten on 12.
Assistant coach Quinton Friend was pleased with the effort from the side
given their result in Bloemfontein in the first game against the Knights.
"We didn't play well in Bloemfontein so to get the result we did here
against them is very satisfying," Friend said. "I think the boys knew that
we needed to change something and we needed to step up against them here
at home we did just that.
"Daryn (Dupavillon) was exceptional taking eleven wickets in his first
game back from injury and the spinners were magnificent in holding the
game perfectly for us.
"I thought our tail batted brilliantly in the first innings helping us get
that lead that put us in the position to win the game."
The Dolphins will next travel to SuperSport Park to face the Multiply
Titans from 13-16 December.
