Dolphins Crowned CSA Women’s 1-Day Cup Champions

JOHANNESBURG: The Hollywoodbets Dolphins Ladies clinched the Cricket South Africa (CSA) Women’s 1-Day Cup title following a convincing 25-run triumph over the DP World Lions on Saturday.

Heading into the final round encounter, the Lions ladies were in pursuit of a bonus point victory to leapfrog the Dolphins atop the standings, as the CSA Professional Women’s Domestic League concludes with the weekend’s last fixtures.

Opting to field after winning the toss at the DP World Wanderers, the Lions faced a challenging target as Alexandra Candler led the charge with an impressive knock of 89 runs.

Supporting contributions from Asamkele Kawu (28) and Seshnie Naidu (25) propelled the Dolphins to a competitive total of 200/7 within their allocated 50 overs.

Maddison Landsman and Relebogile Mkhize managed to secure two wickets each for the Lions.


However, the Lions’ response was marred by a steady procession of wickets, finding themselves at four down by the halfway point.

Despite a resilient half-century by skipper Kgomotso Rapoo (60 off 53) and a valiant effort from Palesa Mapoo with 26 runs, the Lions ultimately succumbed, bundled out for 175.

Meanwhile, in Oudtshoorn, the Six Gun Grill Garden Route Badgers found themselves restricted to a modest total of 133 by the Recon Tactical Free State.

Elandri Janse van Rensburg was the chief destroyer, claiming figures of 3/15 in six overs, ably supported by Zintle Kula, Yolandi Potgieter, and Miane Smit, each securing two wickets.

Though Micaela Andrews (35) offered some resistance, along with notable contributions from Chantelle van Schoor (23) and Mochelle May (21), the Badgers struggled to build a formidable score.

In response, Free State’s Mignon van der Merwe (33), Verunissa Reddy (24), and Zintle Kula (21) orchestrated a composed chase, guiding their team to a comfortable four-wicket victory.
