2013-12-14 00:00

VICTORY is in sight for KwaZulu-Natal Inland in their CSA Provincial Three-Day Competition game against Northerns at Centurion.

At the end of play on the second day, Inland had lost Abdul Razack for a duck, and were sitting on 2/1, requiring another 108 runs with a whole day still to play.

Having led by 104 runs at their end of their first innings, Inland looked to have had the better of Northern’s batsmen and were set to have them all dismissed for a low total.

However, the home side’s Qaasim Adams gallantly fought off KwaZulu-Natal’s bowlers as the boys from Pietermaritzburg put themselves on the path to victory.

Inland’s Kyle Nipper was the star for the visitors yesterday as he scored 92 runs off 138 balls to ensure that his team put together a decent total and a good lead.

At the beginning of their second innings, the home side trailed by 104, and it seemed to get worse for them as they lost three early wickets for just 38 runs.

Adams scored a century as he fought off Inland’s bowlers, but wickets around him kept tumbling. At the end, he was the sole man remaining for Northerns on 112 not out, as they were bowled out for 213.

Inland’s Ruhan Pretorious and Tabraiz Shamsi were the pick of the bowlers as they both took three wickets for 41 and 40 respectively.

At the end of play yesterday, Inland were 2/1 and required another 108 to win.

Play resumes at 10 am this morning. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy. Should you wish to report a comment for editorial review, please do so by clicking the 'Report Comment' button to the right of each comment.
