Quicks shine at CSA Cubs Week

2013-01-05 00:00

THE opening day of the CSA Franchise Cubs Week took place in the Boland on Thursday. Now a South African U19 squad will be selected to play England U19 in two Tests and five ODIs.

It was the quick bowlers who generally held the upper hand in the three matches.

One exception was Kyle Simmonds (ex-Westville) who captured three Titans wickets with his spin for the Dolphins. Sibonela Makhanya (DHS) started the Titans’ downfall. He ended with four wickets to have the Titans all out and still requiring 36 runs for victory in a low-scoring match.

The Dolphins made a moderate 151 after middle-order batsmen Prenelan Subrayen (ex-Glenwood) and Senuran Muthusamy (ex-Clifton) had rallied the side after the top order had struggled against the Titans opening bowlers, Corbin Bosch and Vincent Moore.

Moore, an ex-Springs BHS pupil who has already played for the SA U19 team, took four wickets, and Bosch, a recent SA Colts player from Pretoria BHS, took three.

The other two matches had exciting endings as the Highveld Lions beat the Knights by one run and the Warriors won by 12 runs against the Cape Cobras.

The only century was scored by Andries Gous (ex-Grey College), but it was not enough to give the Knights a win. He and Patrick Kruger (Noordkaap) had added 113 for the seventh wicket. Lions fast bowler Kagiso Rabada (St Stithians) grabbed four wickets.

It was SA Schools opening bowler Ngazabini Sigwili, of Hudson Park, and seamer Bradley Bopp (Grey HS) with three wickets apiece who caused most of the damage for the Warriors, to give them victory against the Cobras. David Bedingham (ex Wynberg) got the Cape side off to a good start in making 54, but they were all out just 12 runs short.
