2017-03-08 06:05

WARRIORS Sport squared up against their nemesis Dawnheights in a T20 league match played at the Umhlali Preparatory School grounds on Saturday.

Dawnheights won the toss and elected to bat first on a well-prepared wicket.

However, Warriors went straight into the bowling attack with Amin Gallie drawing first blood in claiming two wickets in the first over for just six runs.

Dawnheights managed to steady the ship for the next few overs until Ashveer Balchand claimed the wicket of skipper Suveer Maharaj in the sixth over with the tally at 35.
From then on it was the Warriors way, with some tight bowling and wicket claiming at regular intervals.

Dawnheights ended their innings on a low 73/8 with only opener Wasim Suleman scoring double figures of 25, which included four fours.

Galli claimed 3/26, Sikander Ally 2/7 off two overs, Balchand 2/8 off two overs and Rishen Mathapershad 1/26 off four overs.

Justin Govender took three breathtaking catches.

Warriors skipper Riaz Mahomed went straight into the batting attack, smashing three fours all over the park before he was caught for 13 runs in the third over.
Man of the match Govender stepped in and continued the onslaught before he was bowled out for 34 (including four fours) in the ninth over with the innings total at 51.

Opener Sandile Mazibuko was distraught when he was given out LBW with the scores levelled in the 12th over and his personal score on 14.

Galli insisted on stepping up the order to finish the innings.

He did this in style with a massive six off the first ball, giving Warriors a victory by seven wickets in the 12th over scoring 79 runs.

Suleman claimed 2/9 off two overs and Salman Mohammed 1/20 off his four-over spell.
