2011-12-16 00:00

THE under-19 Coca Cola Khaya Majola week got under way yesterday in Cape Town and the two KwaZulu-Natal sides both had favourable starts in their cricket matches.

Runs were hard to come by on a day dominated mainly by the bowlers.

KZN Inland played against Easterns, who got off to a good start to reach 105 before the second wicket fell.

It was then that the Maritzburg College speedsters Calvin Savage and Daryn Dupavillon struck.

Savage ended with four wickets for 19 run in 13.5 overs and Dupavillon with three for 41 in 13 overs.

Easterns were sent packing for 143 in the 45th over. Jason Shield (Hilton) top-scored with 69 for Inland.

Savage declared on 147 for eight scored in 50 overs.

No further play was possible, giving Inland a first innings win.

Coastals did well to bowl Free State out for just 77 in 31 overs.

Craig Kirsten (Kearsney) took four wickets.

Coastals then declared their innings closed on 185 for seven with valuable contributions from Mishkal Ramsaroop (Glenwood), Mark Airey (Kearsney) and Khalipa Cele (Northwood). In their second innings Free State reached 58 for two.
