POOR EX­E­CU­TION AGAINST CLIFTON COSTS COL­LEGE BOYS

The Witness - - HORSE RACING -

CLIFTON took on Mar­itzburg Col­lege in a T20 clash on the week­end.

Clifton won the toss and elected to bat, scor­ing 122/5 in their 20 overs. Col­lege bowl­ing was ag­gres­sive and ac­cu­rate up front with Holl­away and Gen­gen hit­ting their straps early on, but to­wards the end of the power­play and at the death, the bowlers let them­selves down with poor ex­e­cu­tion.

A cou­ple of run outs and a few de­ci­sions made a sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence to the over­all to­tal.

M Khu­malo was yet again the pick of the bowlers.

Col­lege started their in­nings well with J Camp­bell lead­ing the charge and the home side looked set to take it to the wire. The se­nior bats­man how­ever, did not take re­spon­si­bil­ity and this led to Col­lege’s demise. Col­lege ended 16 runs shy.
