Back-to-back victories for KZN cricket teams

2013-10-07 00:00

BOTH KwaZulu-Natal teams enjoyed full-house victories in the Cricket South Africa competitions over the weekend.

In the CSA Provincial One-Day Competition, KZN Inland beat Namibia by 128 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method at the Maritzburg Oval yesterday to take five log points from the game.

Kyle Nipper hit a superb 95 off just 73 deliveries that included 13 fours and two sixes, and the consistent SJ Erwee 93 off 115 (11 boundaries) as Inland raced to 307 for five in their 50 overs, and once left-arm opening bowler Yusuf Abdulla had snapped up two Namibian wickets in his second over the result was a foregone conclusion.

Inland beat Namibia by seven wickets in the CSA Provincial Three-Day Competition on Saturday to harvest a handy 17,64 points. Resuming their second innings on 225 for five, Namibia were up against it, as the second new ball was due in three overs and the Inland pace attack had them back in the pavilion just 50 runs later. Needing 105 to win, Inland made light work of the challenge, despite losing two early wickets.

KZN Coastal batted superbly to win their CSA One-Day Competition match by 10 wickets with 90 balls in hand on the Duckworth/Lewis method against Northerns at Kingsmead yesterday.

Chasing a daunting 320 to win, Coastal were 217 without loss after 35 of their 50 overs when the elements intervened. Morné van Wyk (119 not out off 114 balls with 14 fours and two sixes) and the irrepressible Jonathan Vandiar (92 not out off 96 balls with seven fours and one six) were the Coastal men in the driving seat.

In their CSA Provincial Three-Day Competition match, KZN Coastal completed a stunning seven-wicket win over Northerns to take 17,84 points from the match that ended on Saturday.

Vandiar’s three-hour 104 off 128 balls including 17 fours was the highlight and capped a great match for this Durban talent. David Miller bludgeoned an unbeaten 73 off 58 balls with 10 fours and a six to see Coastal home.
