DAWNHEIGHTS Cricket Club avenged their defeat in emphatic fashion after trouncing Oceanville by 45-runs in an Ilembe Cricket Union Twenty-20 League (Pool B) game played at the Gledhow Ground on Saturday.

Dawnheights won the toss and elected to bat first. They posted 125/9 in their allotted 20-overs. Sixteen-year-old Santhir Bageloo, who opened the batting for Dawnheights top scored with 32 runs which included two boundaries.

He received good support from Zain Hoosen (17), Keaton Govender (12), Suveer Maharaj (14) and Shivaan Singh (15). Ricardo was the pick of the Oceanville bowlers claiming 3/9 from 3 overs.

Chasing 126 runs for victory from 20 overs (at a rate of 6,1 runs per over), Oceanville battled to get the scoreboard ticking and disappointingly, were content to bat out their 20-overs without making any effort to chase the target.

Despite the 28-runs conceded by their rivals (through leg byes and wides), Oceanville were only able to muster 80/4 in their allotted 20-overs (going down by 45-runs).

Spin wizard Santhir Bageloo, who impressed with the bat earlier in the innings was voted man-of-the-match, claiming 2/12 from 4 overs. Manoj Pundit (1/12 from three overs) and Wasim Suleman (1/8 from four overs) bowled economically and were rewarded with one wicket each.

Skipper of the Dawnheights outfit, Suveer Maharaj heaped praise upon his youthful charges and commended the lads on a disciplined approach with both bat and ball.

Meanwhile, on Sunday Dawnheights made the trip to the Comtech Ground in Umlazi in the hope of extending their lead at the summit of the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Challenge League (Stream Two) log table, but returned home with a share of the spoils.

Umpires S. Dube and S. Shabangu (appointed by KZN Cricket Union) inspected the pitch immediately after the 9am kick-off time and called off the game without a single ball being bowled due to a water-logged pitch.

Ilembe’s hopes of making amends for their disappointing defeat against Amanzimtoti in a KZN Challenge League (Stream One) a fortnight ago was dented after their game against log leaders Clares of Asherville at the Gledhow Ground was called off due to rain.
