Inland side Standard win three from three

2012-11-21 00:00

IN the absence of 50-over matches of late, it has been a productive time for KZN Inland Premier League team Standard in the Twenty20 format; the lads from Wanderers Club in Scottsville’s Aberfeldy Road winning three from three outings.

In KFC Premier T20 action, the Standard First XI beat Varsity by 32 runs; Chad Barron’s top score of 34 followed up by team-mates Darryn Mortimer (four for seven) and Tim de la Hey (four for 17) putting together outstanding performances with the ball.

Next up, it was Lancashire’s turn to taste defeat at the hands of Standard; the lads from Woodlands being bundled out for 71, with Brent Kay and Marcel Frenzl doing the damage with ball in hand, before Robin Elliott complemented his team-mates’ wicket-taking success by spearheading the run charge in what was a nine-wicket win achieved in double-quick time.

And in KZN Inter City T20 fare, the Standard lads beat Young Natalians on the Duckworth/Lewis method in a rain-affected game that did not stop incumbent KZN Inland batsmen Brad Moses and SJ Erwee getting some valuable time in the middle, alongside the in-form Barron.

All the KZN Inland Premier 50 matches were washed out, while there are no matches this weekend as KZN Inland are playing away.

Down in Durban, round one of the KZN Coastal Premier 50 League will be completed this Sunday, before the teams begin round two next weekend.

Crusaders (32 points from eight matches) will be looking to consolidate their position on top of the log when they meet Delta in Durban North, while Chatsworth Sporting, just two points adrift, need a good win against fourth-placed Uthungulu to haul in the deficit.
