Warriors in stalemate

2015-03-16 00:00

MICHAEL Price, David White and Colin Ackermann’s collective top-order resistance for the Chevrolet Warriors yielded 256 for three as the Sunfoil Series match against the Nashua Cape Cobras at the Newlands cricket ground ended in a stalemate yesterday shortly after the tea break. The match was called off after the tea break when Ackermann reached his half-century off 176 balls.

The Warriors were reduced to 288 first-innings runs, courtesy of excellent seam bowling by Rory ­Kleinveldt (four for 59) and Dane Paterson (four for 59).

Omphile Ramela (129), Justin Ontong (82) and Justin Kemp (73) powered the Cobras to 545, a 257-run first-innings lead on Friday and Saturday.

The Warriors team have played with more resolve in the second half of the Sunfoil Series competition and have been difficult to dislodge, with Colin Ingram, Darryl Brown and Price standout performers.
