Tough first day for Dolphins at PMB Oval

2014-12-19 00:00

A HOT Pietermaritzburg sun, which saw the mercury rising comfortably beyond 30 degrees, saw the Dolphins toil for a full day and 95 overs on the first day of their four-day series clash against the Warriors at Pietermaritzburg Oval ­yesterday.

It was tedious early on, the Warriors reaching 19-0 in the first hour as ­Dolphins’ opening bowlers Craig ­Alexander and McLaren looked for something to work with from the pitch. David White and Michael Price plodded to an opening stand of 46 in 18.5 overs before McLaren got the breakthrough, White edging a booming drive to keeper Morne van Wyk for 25. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
