KZN Inland start well against Border

2012-11-23 00:00

THE top three served KZN Inland well on the first day of the CSA Provincial Three-Day Competition match against Border at Buffalo Park in East London yesterday.

Nic Hendrie, Chad Barron and S.J. Erwee played the major roles in Inland totalling 305 in their first innings after Border had elected to field.

Border were four without loss at the close.

Hendrie scored 41 in just under two hours off 81 deliveries, hitting seven fours in the process, as he and Barron put on 77 for the first wicket.

Barron, back in the side, then added 98 for the second wicket with Erwee, his four-hour 67 coming off 182 balls that included six boundaries.

Erwee — who top-scored with 87 accumulated in three hours and off 137 balls that were studded with 15 fours — then added 52 for the third wicket with Bradley Moses, the latter’s dismissal heralding a mini-collapse.

Four wickets had fallen for 20 runs before Abram Ndhlovu (24) and Ruhan Pretorius (27) compiled 51 for the seventh wicket to steady the ship somewhat.

Lundi Mbane (three for 47), Burton de Wett (3-56), Darryl Brown (2-37) and Shaun de Kock (2-50) were Border’s wicket takers.

Inland’s attack must take advantage of the new ball during tomorrow’s first session in order to put Border under early pressure.

Meanwhile, there was no play on day one of KZN Coastal’s three-day match against Western Province due to the wet outfield at the Chatsworth Oval.
