King Cetshwayo off to a winning start
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.
