Three claim full points in Premier 45

2008-11-11 00:00

BEREA Rovers, Chatsworth United and Crusaders are the only teams with full points after three rounds of the KZN Coastal Premier 45 competition.

Rovers lead Pool A followed closely by United with Dawnheights third, Pinetown fourth, Durban Collegians fifth and African Warriors sixth, the latter two not having picked up a point yet after three losses.

In Pool B, Saders are followed by Delta with Tertiary just behind, the rest being Topham, Sporting and Amanzimtoti, the latter side without a point so far after three losses.

Rovers predictably trounced Warriors by nine wickets, United drilled Pinetown by seven wickets and Heights beat Collegians by three wickets – clearly the sides who batted second in Pool A had the advantage.

The same was not quite the case in Pool B, with Tertiary hammering Toti by 92 runs, Sporting swamping Delta by 83 runs and Saders shading Premier League newcomers Topham by two wickets in arguably the most exciting match of the past Sunday.


Pool A: African Warriors 72 (D. Horsfall three for 17). Berea Rovers 75 for one. Rovers won by 9 wickets.

Pinetown 150 (K. Buckthorpe 57, V. Gobind five for 30). Chatsworth United 152 for three (F. Crowie 44, T. Essack 52*). United won by 7 wickets.

Dbn Collegians 129. Dawnheights 132 for seven (L. Jali 52). Heights won by 3 wickets.

Pool B: Topham 121. Crusaders 125 for eight. Saders won by 2 wickets.

Chatsworth Sporting 191 for seven (F. Lazarus 63*, C. Bowes 49). Delta 108 (C. Woods 45*, C. Bowes four for 12). Sporting won by 83 runs.

Tertiary 163. Amanzimtoti 71 (K. Vardhan four for 10). Tertiary won by 92 runs.
