Razor-sharp Razak skittles Inland

2011-02-12 00:00

A RAMPANT KwaZulu-Natal Coastal, spearheaded by the devastation of leg-spinner Abdul Haq Razak, forced KZN Inland to follow-on during the second day of the Provincial Three-Day Challenge match at the Maritzburg Oval yesterday.

Inland are still 96 runs in arrears with eight second innings wickets intact as the match enters its last day, before tomorrow’s 40-over bash.

Inland were unfortunate from the outset when overnight opening batsman Ollie Humphries could not resume his innings due to an ankle injury.

On his way to figures of six for 59, Razak took four wickets in a devastating 10 deliveries that included a hat-trick as Inland crashed from 205 for five to 205 all out.

Inland’s highlight was an impressive 110-run partnership for the third wicket between top-scorer Glen Addicott and wicketkeeper/batsman Tim Drummond.

Addicott mixed caution with his trademark aggression in a three-hour 80 off 118 deliveries that included nine fours and three sixes. Drummond is a stylish, attacking batsman by nature, and his watchful 74 was compiled purely in the team’s cause.

The key to Coastal’s success was the all-round effectiveness of their attack, from impressive opening bowlers Keegan Eccles and Byron Whatmore to first-class debutant Kushen Kishen and unlucky spinner Khaya Zondo, the visiting captain.
