Dolphins team set to change

2008-10-06 00:00

THE KZN Dolphins selectors have delayed naming the team to meet the Highveld Lions.

“We are only going to announce the team after Hashim Amla has had a final medical check-up [today],” Dolphins convenor of selectors Jay Naidoo told The Witness yesterday afternoon.

This second-round SuperSport Series match takes place at Kingsmead from Thursday.

Amla, plagued of late by a niggling ankle injury, was a last-minute withdrawal from the Dolphins XI that drew a rain-affected SS Series match with the Northern Titans in Durban at the weekend.

If the SA number three batsman doesn’t get the all-clear from the medical staff, it will be a triple blow for the Dolphins ahead of the key four-day match with the early SS Series log-leaders.

Naidoo said new signing HD Ackerman has a prior-contract commitment to be best man at his best friend’s wedding, while Jon Kent has also been excused as he and his wife are expecting their first baby.
