Bad light stops play in Glenwood, St John’s match

2011-01-11 00:00

THE first day of the Maritzburg College January Festival was played in humid conditions, with three games ending in a win.

The match between Glenwood and St John’s was called off because of bad light at an interesting stage.

There were three centuries on the day, where there was an even contest between bat and ball.

Two of the tons were scored by Westville players, Dudu Zondo and Luke Schlemmer, who added an undefeated 232 for a 5th wicket stand against Helpmekaar.

The other was scored by St David’s Kevin Steyn against Clifton.

Other batsmen to score half centuries were Rishen Ramlugan and Avashlyn Hariparsad from Glenwood, Jamie Mc Graw from St John’s and Senuran Muthusamy from Clifton, also a provincial under 17 player.

Best of the bowlers was Glenwood’s Lance Padayachee who took five wickets for 30 against St John’s.

Jason Newton captured four Glenwood wickets in the same match. Andy Charters from Maritzburg College was particularly miserly in taking three wickets for just four runs in six overs. Both the latter two played in the National under 17 week.
