CWC Pre-Season: OD Round Robin


International Debutant
OD Trial Match 2
CWC Trial XI B vs CWC Trial XI C

The second match of the OD round-robin saw first game winners Trial XI B hosting debutants Trial XI C.

The C's won the toss and elected to bowl first under cloudy skies, with Hunt looking sharp early and Zadran extracting massive swing in the conditions. Yamadera also got the ball moving and zipping about, with all 3 of the front-line seamers troubling the B top order. Only Narang fought against the tide, with a stubborn 34, before he was brilliantly run out from a Dunlop direct hit. Mork got settled, but the bamboozling Harry Beaver robbed him of partners, decimating the B's middle order with a clever spell which saw him grab 3 scalps. With the side in trouble at 6/77, Mork and Dazinho could afford few risks, with both putting together patient but efficient innings under the circumstances. Mork top scored with an unbeaten 63, but the B's score of 6/171 looked meagre with the sky beginning to clear.

Expressman Morne Morkel got his side off to a good start, troubling both the openers before knocking over Ingram. Du Toit and Monk put together a smart partnership, rotating the strike and at times protecting one another with the ball still moving about. Neither managed to go on with their start, however it mattered little in such a small chase - de Prag and Dunlop comfortably finishing the job with time to spare. Morkel, Delev and Narang each grabbed one wicket apiece, with Lewis unlucky throughout, but the bowlers were always going to struggle after the batsmen let them down.

Getting some decent wickets there. 3 in the first match and 1 in the second despite being dropped to 6th bowler.

Got some runs opening too. Good workout.

Glad to get some runs in that first game, shame it didn't go so well though and we didn't get it over the line, hopefully we'll win the next ones.
