Rain mars opening day in Windhoek

2010-11-19 00:00

CHAD Barron, the KZN Inland top-order batsman, described what was a “massive downpour” that put paid to any hopes of more cricket after lunch on day one of the Provincial Three-Day Challenge match between Namibia and the Pietermaritzburg-based side in Windhoek yesterday.

“It was bucketing down,” Barron said in a disappointed tone, as both sides had to be content with just 34 overs out of the maximum 104.

Inland captain Kyle Nipper won the toss and asked Namibia captain Craig Williams’s side to bat. At lunch Namibia were 74 for one, opening bowler Kimeshan Chetty encouraging an edge off Raymond van Schoor’s bat to wicketkeeper Tim Drummond in the eighth over.


Namibia 74/1 after 34 ov (R van Schoor 21, G Rudolph 18*, S Burger 32*; K Chetty 1-9).
