Titans end day on 274 for four

2015-03-27 00:00

ON a day when elements held sway, the Titans, spearheaded by a fourth-wicket partnership of 150 between Henry Davids and Roelof van der Merwe, went into stumps on 274 for four in their Sunfoil Series match against the Knights played at SuperSport Park yesterday.

With the umpires deciding that the ambient light was fading fast, Davids was still standing at the death on a 151-ball 86 and Qaasim Adams was on two.

The Titans openers, Theunis de Bruyn and Kyllin Vardhan, got the innings off to a steady start, compiling 65 for the first-wicket, but Vardhan got himself run out.

De Bruyn (56) seemed to be in complete control, but an untimely swish at a full delivery from Van Schalkwyk rearranged his stumps.

The home side were 110 for two which soon became for three, as Van Buuren misjudged the flight of a Malusi Siboto delivery.

A period of consolidation was required and Henry Davids and Roelof van der Merwe did just that.


Titans 274-4 (Van der Merwe 89, Davids 86*De Bruyn 56; Siboto 2-61)
