KZN Inland champions Standard beat Pretoria High School Old Boys by four wickets on day two of the National Club Cricket Championships in

Pretoria yesterday, writesJONATHAN COOK.

After losing by 11 runs to Kempton Park on day one, it is a notable victory against the former champions who have won the tournament more than once.

The Pretoria side made 157 after winning the toss. Kyle Nipper and Al Briscoe took two wickets each, while Morne van Vuuren only conceded 17 runs in nine overs and effected three run-outs (making it five in two matches) to cramp the Pretoria side.

In reply, Standard were nicely set at 100 for two, with Nipper and Brendon Jones getting 30s, before the brothers Van Vuuren, Morne and Andre, piloted the Pietermaritzburg club home.

Standard play Griquas club champs Burma Lads in Pretoria tomorrow.
