President’s XI win against Westville

2010-01-29 00:00

IT has not been often that a composite side has beaten one of the boys’ schools in the day/night league, but it happened on Wednesday in the second match played in the Sunfoil Night League, when the President’s XI were comfortable winners against Westville.

Westville, after losing most of their side at the end of the year, are in a rebuilding phase and they include three Under 15s in the team. Nevertheless, it was certainly a proud moment for the President’s XI, captained by Suhail Razack from Ladysmith.

An opening stand of 51 between Razack and Brian Kunst (Howick) set a solid foundation, but other than a fourth wicket stand of 45 between Howick players, Gareth Gardner and Ryan Stanbury, the other batsmen did not take advantage of the start and they were all out for 150, with two balls of the 40 overs remaining. Gardner top-scored with 36 scored in 35 balls. Razack ended on 27 and Stanbury on 25, with Westville’s Jason Lawrence taking four wickets for 30 in his maximum of eight overs.

Victory for the composite side was set up by their bowlers, with the opening pair of Marcel Frenzel (MCS) and Cody Mortimer (Howick), bowling a good line and length and keeping the pressure on the batsmen. Most successful of the bowlers was Stanbury, who captured three wickets for 27, with Frenzel, Mortimer and Jadaan Knipe (Alexandra) each taking a brace of wickets.

Aerin Ivy was the only Westville batsman to stay for any length of time, making 29 off 39 balls. Westville lost wickets regularly to be all out for 105 scored in 27 overs to give the President’s XI a 45 run win.

Score in brief:

Presidents XI 150 (Gardner 36, Razack 27, Stanbury 25, Lawrence 4/30)

Westville 105 (Ivey 29, Stanbury 3/27)

President’s XI won by 45 runs.
