KZN Coastals finish with top team score at Khaya Majola Week

2012-12-22 00:00

THE fourth day and first of the two 50-over matches saw the two KZN sides win both their matches at the Coca Cola Khaya Majola Week in Potchefstroom. There were three games where the winning side won by more than 160 runs and in only two of the eight matches did the side batting first not win.

Daryn Dupavillon of Maritzburg College was the hero of the day as he captured seven North West wickets for just 18 in just under seven overs. This brought his tally to 17 in the four days played.

KZN Inland’s Greg Oldfield, after being out for 99 on the second day, reached his three figures in the last over of the innings. Oldfield can thank Lungi Ngidi (Hilton) for staying with him as the pair added an unbeaten 52 for the ninth wicket in 15.2 overs, Ngidi ending on 23.

Kyle Pyn-James scored a half-century and Robbie Anderson continued his good form with 35.

College’s Sohail Mahmoud captured another two wickets to bring his tally to 12 for the four games.

The other wicket went to Oldfield, as Inland dominated the game to win by 161 runs.

KZN Coastals had a tougher assignment against Mpumalanga, where they won by three wickets, but with 10 overs to spare. Sibonela Makhanya (DHS) came on as the first change bowler and had Chris ­Coetzee (Nelspruit) trapped for 24 and ended with three wickets. Craig Kirtsen (Kearsney) and Senuran Muthusamy (Clifton) got two each.

With the score on 122 for seven, the game was in the balance until Kyle Simmonds (Westville) and Tyler Smith (Kearsney) added an unbeaten 45 for the 8th wicket to take their side to a three-wicket victory.

The final day of the 2012 U19 Coca Cola Khaya Majola Week saw Gauteng lose to Western Province.

KZN Inland produced the top score and best bowling figures on the day in beating Eastern Province. Robbie Anderson (Michaelhouse) scored an undefeated 81 and Luc Maingard (Hilton) captured five EP wickets for just 13 runs in just over four overs to polish off the tail. Spinners Sohail Mahmoud (M College) and Greg Oldfield (Michaelhouse), were the only two bowlers to bowl the maximum of 10 overs, ending with a brace of wickets each.

Inland did not start well, but a 91-run, fourth-wicket stand between Anderson and Oldfield in 98 balls enabled the local side to reach the target of 199 with 49 balls to spare and six wickets in hand. Oldfield scored another half-century.

The top team score of the week, 325 for five, was that of KZN Coastals against Easterns. An opening stand of 116 between Tyler Trenoweth (DHS) and Dudu Zondo (Westville), who made 51 and 85 respectively, laid the foundation for the total . Captain Senuran Muthusamy (Clifton) top-scored with 89 in 83 balls and Kyle Simmonds weighed in with an undefeated 35 in 22 balls at the end of the innings.

Easterns were bowled out for 126 in the 29th over, with Nhlakanipho Madwe (Glenwood) taking three wickets and Craig Kirsten (Kearsney) and Simmonds two each.
