Inland dig themselves into a hole

2013-11-29 00:00

THE KZN Inland cricket team dug themselves into a hole with a collapse of the top order and found themselves at 127/7 at the end of play against Gauteng in Johannesburg.

Grant Morgan’s boys were reduced to 28/4 in the 12th over when skipper Shane Burger joined Sarel Erwee at the crease after Nick Hendrie (4), Suhail Razack (5), Mbasa Gqadushe (9) and Brad Moses were dismissed.

Erwee and Burger put on 79 for the fifth wicket before the captain was caught off the bowling of Sean Jamison for 36 in the 37th over. Erwee foll­owed and missed out on a half century by two runs. He too was caught off the bowling of Jamison, who finished the day with figures of 4/27.

Kyle Nipper was also dismissed for eight, which meant Ruhan Pretorius and Graham Hume were at the crease when the game was called at the end of the 47th over.

KZN Inland will have to produce a top-notch performance with the ball against Gauteng, who are last season’s champions.
