Inland ahead on way to final

2010-11-13 00:00

THE batsmanship of Bradley Moses, Tim Drummond, Devon Conway and captain Kyle Nipper placed KZN Inland in a good position going into the final day of the provincial three-day challenge against Griquas in Kimberley yesterday.

And with Inland quick bowler Kimeshan Chetty taking three wickets, the home side were 59 for four at one point. Roy Adams and Charl Pietersen stopped the rot and their early wickets will be first priority for Inland this morning.

The stylish Moses batted for five responsible hours in facing 196 deliveries and scoring 102, which included 11 boundaries. Conway led from the front with his 69 containing 14 fours; wicketkeeper/batsman Drummond made 70 and stroked 11 fours, while Nipper interspersed his lightning running between the wickets with three sixes and two fours to hammer an unbeaten 51 off only 43 balls.

At Kingsmead, KZN Coastal and Border were level-pegging at stumps on day two.

Both venues will host the respective 40-over matches tomorrow.
