CREASE BOUND

-

From dynamic to disastrous — the Volts’ twenty20 batting lineup has been hugely disappoint­ing this season. Monday’s effort against Auckland was the nadir. The side was bowled out for an embarrassi­ng total of 80 — a new low for the province in the format. So what is going on? Well, the Volts seem too reliant on its senior players Hamish Rutherford and Neil Broom, and have felt the absence of

South African Dean Foxcroft more than they possibly expected. He scored 269 at an average of 67.25 last season. Those runs have not been replaced. He was banker but he is stuck in the Republic unable to return due to New Zealand’s border restrictio­ns.
