Rain again dominates Khaya Majola Cricket Week with most of the matches drawn

2013-12-18 00:00

RAIN was again the dominant factor in yesterday’s Khaya Majola Cricket Week in and around Durban, with most of the U19 matches drawn.

KwaZulu-Natal Coastal took on Gauteng at Chatsworth Oval after the fixture was moved from Lahee Park Oval due to a wet field. Kearsney College, another venue for the week, was also unavailable due to fields being too wet.

Yesterday’s games were declaration matches and KZN batted first after winning the toss under dark-grey skies, with the rain never too far away. They reached 225-5 after 57 overs. Glenwood’s Gareth Wissing (70) and Kearsney’s Ryan Wallace (72) set up the total with a second wicket partnership of 128 in 30.2 overs.

Westville’s Luke Schlemmer (27*) and Glenwood’s Andile Phehlukwayo (23) weighed in with useful runs down the order, while the bowling was led by quick Brandon Glover (St Stithians) who finished with 3-26 in his 10 overs.

Gauteng were 66-1 after 25 overs when rain prevented any further play.
