Cricket: rain disrupts KZN's provincial matches

2011-03-26 00:00

THE weather got the better of both the KZN Inland Provincial Three-Day Challenge match against North West in Potchefstroom and the KZN Coastal fixture with Free State in Bloemfontein yesterday.

Hardly a ball was bowled in Bloemfontein and Free State will resume today’s final day with their score standing at 64 for no wicket in reply to KZN Coastal’s 271 for nine after their first innings 85 overs.

In Potchefstroom, North West resumed their first innings on the overnight 24 for two in reply to Inland’s 283 for four, and opener Nicky van den Bergh (52) and Andries Huisamen (123 not out) righted the ship.

North West were 263 for four after 63.4 overs when the rain put paid to any more play.

The 40-over matches are tomorrow.
