Solid batting: College beat Michaelhouse in Inland final

2012-02-02 00:00

THE President’s XI opted to bat first when they faced St Charles in a lacklustre seventh match of the Schools’ Night League at the Oval yesterday.

Other than a bright 37 off 49 balls by Johan Ungerer, the President’s XI stuttered to 94 all out in the 34th over.

Andrew Darroch was the best with three wickets for 17 in his eight overs.

St Charles batted cautiously to reach the target in the 24th over for the loss of three wickets. Keegan Stretch and Tyrone Mitchell both scored 26, the latter not out.

Score in brief: President’s XI 94 (Ungerer 37, T Mitchell 3/17)


The KZN Inland final of the T20 competition took place on Goldstones at Maritzburg College yesterday afternoon.

After winning the toss Michaelhouse put up a competitive target as they reached 134 for five. Robbie Anderson was the best of the batsmen, scoring 60 in 57 balls.

Tim Guise-Brown captured two wickets to be the most successful of the bowlers. College did not want to give up their hold on Inland easily, but when Guise-Brown came to the crease they were staring at a defeat on 41 for five.

Guise-Brown showed the true College spirit and lashed the Michaelhouse bowlers to all parts of the ground. He ended on 84 (seven fours and six sixes) off only 43 balls to take College to a four-wicket win.

This means College will defend their Dolphins title and the right to represent the Dolphins in Potchefstroom against the other five franchises. Westville won the KZN Coastal section and travel to the Oval to play College.

Score in brief:

Michaelhouse 134-5 (Anderson 60);

M College 140-6 (Guise-Brown 84*)

College won by four wickets
