Inland lose Van Wyk for clash with NW

2013-03-14 00:00

KWAZULU-NATAL Inland have lost the services of Divan van Wyk for their CSA provincial three-day cricket competition match against North West that begins in Potchefstroom today, but they welcome the inclusion of Maritzburg College’s Daryn Dupavillon.

Van Wyk, a prolific opening batsman for Inland, has Dolphins duty today, but may be back for Sunday’s Pro20 match against the lads from Potch.

Dupavillon, the South Africa U19 and SA Schools’ fast bowler, will make his first-class debut in today’s match.

The Player of the Tournament at the 2012 Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket Week is rated highly by Inland coach Grant Morgan.

“Daryn is an exciting young bowler with massive potential and it’s great to have him in the team,” Morgan told The Witness from the Senwes Park nets in Potchefstroom yesterday, where his squad were putting in last-minute preparations for the upcoming four days’ cricket.

No doubt Dupavillon will be launching his first-class career with some lively bowling and his progress will be watched with much interest by the College schoolboys.

Other than Van Wyk and Dupavillon, the Inland squad remain much the same as that which did duty in the back-to-back defeats by Northerns at the Maritzburg Oval a fortnight ago.

“We had three very good practices last week and productive one-on-one sessions on Monday,” Morgan added.

“The spirit in the camp is good and the boys are looking forward to taking on North West.”

After the weekend against fifth-placed North West in Potchefstroom, the 12th-placed Inland continue their travels when they take on 13th-placed Griquas in this 14-team competition in Kimberley from March 21, before wrapping up their season against ninth-placed Easterns in Benoni from April 4.

Meanwhile, at Chatsworth, 11th-placed KZN Coastal meet last-placed Namibia from today.
