29 Oct KNIGHTS AND DOLPHINS SHARE SPOILS AS TITANS SECURE A NARROW WIN AGAINST WARRIORS
POTCHEFSTROOM: The Momentum Multiply Titans secured a narrow two-wicket victory against the Dafabet Warriors on Friday afternoon.
After opting to bat first, Warriors stumbled with the bat, posting a total of only 119 runs. Notable contributions were in the 20s from Jordan Hermann (27), Matthew Breetzke (26), and Lesiba Ngoepe (20) to finish the innings on 119/7.
Simon Harmer (2/12) was economical in his four overs with the dismissals of Wihan Lubbe for six and Diego Rosier with fourteen runs. Aaron Phangiso registered best figures of 4/23 after dismissing Ngoepe, Hermann, Sinethemba Qeshile with just three runs and Glenton Stuurman for none.
The Titans’ batting line-up also struggled to make any runs after a top order collapse, with captain, Sibonelo Makhanya, contributing 21 runs. But it was the unbeaten 43-run partnership for the nineth-wicket between Dayyaan Galiem (29*) and Junior Dala (14*) that ensured the Titans take home yet another victory.
Warriors bowlers tried to quell the run-rate but it was just not enough runs on the board to defend. Tshepo Ndwandwa, Glenton Stuurman, Akhona Mnyaka, and Ziyaad Abrahams all claiming two wickets each.
