Three-dayer: bowlers put wp ahead

2011-10-14 00:00

IT was a day for the bowlers at the Maritzburg Oval yesterday. KZN Inland were shot out for 131 before Western Province weathered early setbacks to finish day one of this Provincial Three-Day Challenge match seven runs ahead with six wickets intact.

The opening day at the PMB Oval always offers the fast bowlers something, and double champions WP shrugged off Inland winning the toss as Vincent Viret and Johannes Bothma applied pressure from both ends. Only Tyler Lortan and Brady Barends gained any measure of success with the bat as the two-pronged pace attack was later followed by superb back-up from wrist spinner Michael Rippon and Siyabulela Simetu.
