29 Oct STUURMAN, MOORE & ROSIER PUT WARRIORS IN CONTROL ON RAIN-AFFECTED DAY 1 OF 4-DAY SERIES
JOHANNESBURG: Fast bowler, Glenton Stuurman bagged an impressive five-wicket haul for the Gbets Warriors on a rain-delayed Day One of the CSA Four-Day Domestic Series Division One against the Momentum Multiply Titans at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday.
All the Four-Day Domestic Series matches are streamed live on SuperSport’s YouTube channel, with the first round taking place between 29 October-01 November.
Stuurman’s figures of five for 34 helped bowl out the home side for just 134 in 38.2 overs after the Warriors won the toss and elected to field first, with starlet Jordan Hermann (50 off 74 balls; 10 fours) top-scoring with a maiden First-Class fifty.
With the bat, the Warriors didn’t start much better before a 162-run stand for the fourth wicket between opener Edward Moore (85* off 151 balls; 15 fours, 2 sixes) and Diego Rosier (85 off 104 balls; 16 fours, 1 six) helped carry the visitors to stumps on 196/4
In the Gauteng-North West encounter, the Imperial Lions’ off-season recruit and South African fast bowler, Duanne Olivier took four wickets for 51 runs as the Lions dismissed the North West Dragons for 159, despite an action-packed 36-ball 52 (7 fours, 3 sixes) from Wesley Marshall.
A half-century from Joshua Richards (56 off 115 balls; 9 fours) led the Lions’ first innings reply as the home side reached stumps on 127/2, trailing by 32 runs at the Imperial Wanderers.
In Cape Town, the Hollywoodbets Dolphins posted a healthy first-day total against the Six Gun Grill Western Province, ending the day’s play on 186/4 after they lost the toss and were asked to bat first. Keegan Petersen’s 56 off 119 balls (10 fours) was the highlight of the Dolphins innings, with Khaya Zondo (29*) and Jason Smith (44*) remaining at the crease as the overnight batters.
Day One of the ITEC Knights and GbetsRocks clash at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein ended without a ball being bowled following rain.
The Division One action continues on Saturday, 30 October with Day Two getting underway from 09h30 (rain-affected venues) and 10h00.
