Solid away win for King Cetshwayo

Eyethu Baywatch - - SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

RH Con­struc­tion King Cetshwayo’s good form con­tin­ued at the week­end af­ter the lo­cal squad recorded a five-wicket vic­tory over Amanz­im­toti Cricket Club in a Pre­mier League fix­ture played at

Toti Oval on Sun­day.

Cap­tain Ja­son Redinger won the toss and elected to bowl first.

This de­ci­sion proved wise as his bowl­ing at­tack re­stricted the home side to 91 all out in 34.3 overs.

Lead­ing the bowl­ing pack was Ruan

Janse van

Rens­burg who recorded fig­ures of 3/26 in 10, with fur­ther con­tri­bu­tions com­ing from Neill Jor­dan (2/25 in 10), Marc Shork­end (1/22 in 8), Chad Neuhoff (1/11 in 6) and Gareth Bishop (1/4 in 0.3).

King Cetshwayo’s mod­est run chase got off to a very shake start, how­ever. Opener Zakhele Ntuli de­parted for zero, with the scoreboard read­ing 21/1. Then Redinger and Dy­lan Browne were also dis­missed for ducks, leav­ing the score at 25/3.

But Melvyn Jack­son’s 27, Janse van Rens­burg’s 25 not out and Gareth Bishop’s 18 not out were enough to guide the team home. King Cetshwayo reached 95/5 in 24 overs.

The lads will take on Clares at Ad­di­son Park on Sun­day in their next as­sign­ment.

Catch the Zu­l­u­land Ob­server Weekender for more pho­tos.
