KZN U15s and U13s make the most of a rainy day

2010-12-17 00:00

IT was a disappointing end for the under-17s in Pretoria as the last dayof play washed out.

The KZN under-15 sides, after two “time” games, played two T20s in Port Elizabeth and the under-13s played 50-over games in Potchefstroom.

KZN Inland under-15 had two exciting wins in their T20 games against Border and Western Province.

They were sent in to bat by Border and made 129 for five, with Thomas Curran (Hilton) top-scoring with 56 in 46 balls.

Border needed 13 runs in the last two overs with seven wickets in hand.

Greg Oldfield (Michaelhouse) took two wickets for six runs in his two overs and Border were eight runs short at the close.

Electing to bat in their second match, Inland reached 108 for six, which did not appear to be enough against Western Province.

At the halfway stage Province were 46 for four compared to Inland’s 48 for three at the same stage.

Inland bowlers gradually caused the rate to increase and wickets began to fall. After the 20 overs, Province had reached 102 for nine giving Inland another tight win.

Oldfield, Caley Campbell (Hilton) and two Maritzburg College lads, Karl Hillermann and Fezile Memela, each picked up a brace of wickets.

KZN Coastals lost one game and won the other convincingly. In the first match, Eastern Province made 142 for three as the Coastal bowlers struggled. Coastals were all out for 115 with nine balls remaining.

Tyler Smith (Kearsney) top-scored with 34, while Sintu Manyezi captured five wickets.

In the second match, Limpopo reached 98 for six in the 20 overs. Sereshin Moodley (DHS) took two of the six wickets.

Coastals cut to the chase and reached the target for the loss of two wickets and 10 balls to spare.

Inland’s under 13 batting woes continued when they were bowled out for just 44 by Free State, of which Marc Conlan (Cordwalles) made 28.

This was in reply to 148 for eight scored by Free State in 32 overs, reduced due to rain during the innings.

The revised D/L total was 158 but Inland never threatened, losing by 114 runs on the revised total.

Jerry Mosikili knocked the stuffing out of the Inland batting when he bowled four overs to take five wickets for just one run.

Coastals elected to bat making 151 for six in the reduced 30 overs.

The target was revised to 166 and, although Border gave it a good shot, they reached 145 for nine.
