2012-12-20 00:00

TWO Twenty20 matches were played by each of the U19 provincial sides on the third day in Potchefstroom. Gauteng, Western Province, Border and Eastern Province won both their matches which left Border and Western Province as the only two teams to have won all four matches. Gauteng has won three with a draw and remain unbeaten.

The most exciting match of the day was between Border and KwaZulu-Natal Inland. Two Michaelhouse players, Inland’s captain Robbie Anderson and Luc Maingard, took Inland to a competitive 143 for 4 in the allotted 20 overs. Anderson led from the front with an unbeaten 61 runs from only 51 deliveries, with Maingard making 46 runs.

Border’s captain and opening batsman, Kirwan Christoffels (Queens) continued his good form with the bat and laid a good foundation for his team’s attempt to keep their undefeated status. He ended on 41 in 30 balls. Border needed three runs from the last over of Kerwin Mungroo (Ladysmith), to secure victory. Mungroo bowled well and managed to put the pressure back on Border with them needing two runs from the last delivery. Runé Oosthuizen (Grens) struck the last delivery through midwicket past the inner ring and ran through for the two needed.

Western Province was given a fright in their first match against South Western Districts, winning by two runs. The team had its unbeaten status secured with a 41-run victory over Free State in their second match of the day.

The best performance by a player on the day was SWDs’ Arno Moolman (Oakland). The seamer picked up five wickets while conceding a mere 16 runs. His performance helped his side defeat KZN Coastals by 51 runs in their second game. In the morning, the KZN side gained an 11 run win against Free State. Tyler Trenoweth (DHS) and Dudu Zondo (Westville) put on 90 for the first wicket in just over eight overs, setting the platform for victory.
