Dolphins match hangs in balance

2011-10-22 00:00

WITH three days to go in the SuperSport series match between the Dolphins and the Cobras at Newlands in Cape Town, the advantage is swinging between the teams.

After taking the early wickets that the team needed, the Dolphins batsmen were set the task of chasing a first innings total of 337.

The KwaZulu-Natal side started well, but lost the wicket of star batsman Divan van Wyk for just 18. Ahmed Amla (1) never contributed much with the bat before he was caught off the bowling of Johann Louw. Devon Conway, in the team in place of out-of-sorts Glenn Addicott, batted superbly with captain Imraan Khan before he was dismissed for 51.

This brought night watchman Friedel de Wet to the crease.He was dismissed with the last ball of the day without troubling the scorers.

Coach Graham Ford says that although he would like to have gained the outright advantage at the end of the day, he had to give credit to his bowlers and to Khan and Conway for batting well to chase an imposing total. The Dolphins ended the day on 131/4.
