Inland unable to finish job as they go down to Boland

2014-02-03 00:00

KWAZULU-Natal Inland were unable to finish off their weekend in style after they went down to Boland by 39 runs in their CSA Provincial T20 competition game at Boland Park in Paarl yesterday.

After smashing their opponents from the Western Cape in the Three-Day format the previous day by an innings and 161 runs, Boland, with captain Emile Kriek leading from the front, managed to win the T20 on their home ground.

Kriek scored 53 from 40 balls as the home side posted a total of 146.

Inland’s responded with a whimper as Divan van Wyk (16), skipper Shane Burger (41) and Mbasa Gqadushe (21) offered the only resistance as they reached 107/9 from their 20 overs.

Their performance in the Three-Day game, however, was the complete opposite as they made 501/6 from their innings with Imraan Khan making 195 and Brad Moses scoring 109 not out.

The home side did not avoid the follow on when they were bowled out for 278 early on day three.

Boland’s second innings was atrocious and featured more ducks than a poultry farm. Opening bowler Matthew Pillans was the chief destroyer for Inland, picking up his fifer in 10 overs for just 24 runs.

Letlotlo Selesele and Jean Bredenkamp were the only two batsmen who reached double figures for Boland as they were bowled out for a feeble 62 in just 28 overs.

In Port Elizabeth, KZN Coastal had a similar weekend, winning the longer version and following that with a loss in the T20 to Eastern Province. But, both were close, nail-biting encounters.

The Durban boys managed to win the Three-Day game by eight runs having set EP a target of 172 in the second innings.

EP were bowled out for 164, with KZN opener Brandon Scullard picking up six sticks. However, EP were to get their revenge in the T20 game, winning by three wickets with one ball to spare.

Having set EP a target of 138 from their 20 overs, the home team came back with 141/7.
