Border trail Inland 101 at stumps

2012-01-07 00:00

BOTH KwaZulu-Natal Inland and Border enjoyed positive passages of play on day two of the Provincial Three-Day Challenge match at the Maritzburg Oval yesterday.

The upshot at stumps was that Border trail Inland by 101 runs in the first innings with eight wickets in hand. This after Inland had declared on 279 for nine and the East London lads had compiled 178 for the loss of two wickets at close of play.

The match had been spoilt in that only 46 overs were possible on day one, which makes the chance of a winning result very difficult on Saturday’s third and final day, barring a dramatic collapse or two.

At St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth, an impressive KZN Coastal have played themselves into a winning position after day two.

Coastal compiled 353 in reply to Eastern Province’s first-innings 164 and, with EP on 115 for three in their second dig, the outcome looks good for the Durban lads.

The T20 matches start at 11 am at both venues tomorrow.


Pietermaritzburg: Inland 1st inn 279/9 dec in 102.1 overs (Divan van Wyk 40, Chad Barron 46, Glen Addicott 80, Kyle Nipper 60; Gionne Koopman 4-60, Shaun de Kock 4-58). Border 1st inn 178/2 after 51.1 overs (Kevin Bennett 56*, Luthando Mnyanda 65*).
