King Cetshwayo off to a win­ning start

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

RH CON­STRUC­TION King Cetshwayo got their 2018/2019 cricket sea­son off to a good start, record­ing a com­pre­hen­sive sev­en­wicket vic­tory over UKZN in a Premier League T20 game played at Hammond Field in Dur­ban on Sun­day.

The home side’s cap­tain Gareth Wiss­ing won the toss and elected to have a crack with the wil­low first.

UKZN recorded a below par 68 runs for seven wick­ets, with Travis Gra­ham top scor­ing for his side with 19 runs off 35 balls.

The low tar­get was a re­sult of too tight bowl­ing and top field­ing from the King Cetshwayo out­fit, which saw four of the five bowlers con­ced­ing only three runs per over.

Left-arm or­tho­dox spin­ner Stephan Jou­bert led the charge with fig­ures of 2/7 in 4, with speed­sters Neill Jor­dan and Daryn Du­pavil­lon end­ing with fig­ures of 1/13 and 1/8 in 4 overs re­spec­tively.

It took just 61 min­utes in 15.5 overs for King Cetshwayo to reach the re­quired to­tal, thanks to con­tri­bu­tions from Jou­bert (21 off 33), Melvyn Jack­son (21 off 21) and Zakhele Ntuli (11 off 14).

The squad, cap­tained by Ja­son Redinger, will take on Berea Rovers in Dur­ban on Sun­day in their next as­sign­ment, be­fore their dou­ble header at Ad­di­son Park on 14 Oc­to­ber.
