Dolphins hold on to record 6 run victory
The Nashua Dolphins held on to record a 6 run Duckworth Lewis victory over the Chevrolet Knights at the OUTsurance Oval in Bloemfontein.
Faced with a run chase of 172 the Knights were on course to push for victory having only lost three wickets but a heavy down pour with 5 overs to go caused the game to be abandoned.
Dean Elgar lead the way with a quick fire 48 supported by Ryan Bailey (31) and Rilee Rossouw (23) after the Knights lost Ryan McLaren (8) early on.
Having been put into bat the Dolphins excelled scoring 171 runs for the loss of just 6 wickets to put themselves in charge at the OUTsurance Oval.
Loots Bossman anchored the Dolphins innings with a brilliant 57 which included 3 fours and 4 sixes while Vaughn van Jaarsveld (27) and David Miller (26) enjoyed cameo innings as the visitors record their first victory in this year’s tournament.
