Battle for survival

2013-11-23 00:00

WATCHING the Dolphins toil under the merciless sun at Pietermaritzburg Oval yesterday was like watching Egyptian slaves being whipped by their masters.

Starting the day on 128-3, the Cobras batted through until just after 2.30 pm, all out for 398 in 115.3 overs, scoring at a reasonable 3,44 to the over. The Dolphins struck early with the wickets of Yaseen Vallie (0) and Dane Vilas (4), but Justin Kemp (42) joined Stiaan van Zyl — who was steadily moving toward his century — for a 74-run sixth-wicket partnership that set the tone for Rory Kleinveldt (72) to wield the willow to good effect. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
