DORINGKOP Cricket Club stunned Dawnheights B in an Ilembe Cricket Union Twenty-20 (B Division League) game played at the Country Club Ground on Saturday.

Dawnheights won the toss and elected to bat first. They posted 126/5 in their allotted 20-overs. Suveer Maharaj top scored with 37 runs which included four 4s.
Avishkar Ramduth smashed a “quick-fire” 26 runs which included five boundaries.

Wiseman Mzimela was the pick of the Doringkop bowlers bagging three wickets for 21 runs in 4 overs.
Chasing 127 runs for victory, Sakhile Magubane scored the winning run in the last delivery of the match to give Doringkop a memorable victory.

Siyanda Dube top scored with 31 runs. The pick of the Dawnheights bowlers was Zain Hoosen who claimed 4 wickets from 4 overs for 22 runs. Maharaj grabbed 2/8 from 4 overs and Ramduth claimed 2/18 from 4 overs.

Meanwhile, in a domestic Twenty-20 (A Division League) game played at the Country Club Ground on Saturday afternoon, Dawnheights snatched a thrilling 3-wicket victory against Magnum.

Magnum batted first and was bundled out for 125 runs. Kimone Padayachee (56) and Liam Luke (17) were the only Magnum batsmen to notch double digits. Sagar Arora claimed 3/18 from 4 overs. He received good support from Kenny Govender (3/22 from 3 overs) and Arun Kumar (2/7 from 4 overs).

In reply Dawnheights cantered to a 3-wickets victory with four overs to spare. Kumar (32), Saurav Singh (24 not out) and Keane Govender (23 not out) were the main contributors for Dawnheights. Luke claimed 2/23 from 4 overs and Sheldon Maistry grabbed 2/28 from 4 overs.

In other cricket news the KZN Challenge League between Ilembe and DHS Rhythm on Sunday at the Country Club Ground was abandoned after the 6th over (with Ilembe on 42/3) after umpire Ajith Singh in consultation with both captains decided that the conditions of the pitch was deemed to have been dangerous.

Last year Ilembe Cricket Union president, Aboo Ismail watered the pitch after a domestic game on Saturday in preparation for a KZN Challenge League game to be played on a Sunday, but due to water restrictions and the drought conditions we are experiencing he was probably unable to do the same this past Saturday in preparation for Sunday’s game.
