Mynahs bedraggled as week takes toll

2011-12-13 00:00

THE Kingsmead Mynahs schoolboy cricket week ended on Friday. The side’s last game against the Crickets Club (former Provincial and International players) was cancelled due to rain.

The four games they did play were over five days and this eventually took its toll.

The first game was a two-day match against KZN Inland U17 at Eston. This game was drawn, but the Mynahs arguably had the upper hand. The second game was a 45-over game against KZN Coastal U17, which the latter won by seven wickets.

The next two matches saw the Mynahs U17 side come up against older players. Against the Mynah’s Old Boys they did well to only lose by 36 runs chasing a total of 258 in a 45-over game.

The last game against Inland U19 saw some tired bowling and ragged fielding by the Mynahs on the fifth day of continuous cricket.

Calvin Savage (SA Schools) took advantage in scoring a ton for his side. Rain prevented a result, but the Mynahs would have done extremely well to reach 302 required for a win in the allotted 50 overs.

Results in brief:

Inland U17 188-7 dec (Marshall 46, Guise-Brown 35, Pfaff 35) and 117-4 dec

Mynahs 117-4 dec (Masajada 61* Collins 30*) and 165-7 (Prophet 51, Hartslief 38, Pfaff 3/36)
