Warriors cruise to easy win

A 73-run opening partnership between Christiaan Jonker and Ashwell Prince went a long way to helping the Chevrolet Warriors defeat the Sunfoil Dolphins by nine wickets in their RAM SLAM T20 Challenge match at Buffalo Park in East London on Saturday.

Full scorecard – Warriors v Dolphins

Needing 137 runs for victory, Jonker and Prince started the innings positively, scoring 37 runs from the opening five overs.

They continued to score quickly, and by the time Jonker fell in the 10th over for 34 from 28 deliveries when he was caught by Khayelihle Zondo on the mid-wicket boundary, the Warriors had reached 73.

Colin Ingram joined Prince and the pair wasted little time in knocking off the remaining runs. They put on 65 runs, with Prince being the star of the show, scoring 70* from 55 and Ingram chipping in with 26* from 22 deliveries.

They hit most of the bowlers around the ground, taking Mthokozisi Shezi for 21 in two overs and Imraan Khan for 28 in his three overs.

Prenelan Subrayen was the only bowler to pick up a wicket, but conceded 33 runs in his four overs.

The Dolphins never had enough runs on the board, with Ravi Bopara (42*) and Vaughn van Jaarsveld (58*) coming to the crease at 38 for four, with the Dolphins in heaps of trouble.

They started cautiously, just building their partnership and then accelerated the score towards the back end of the innings. Their partnership ended on 98*, helping their side post a measly 136 in their allotted 20 overs.

Andrew Birch and Simon Harmer were the stand-out bowlers for the Warriors with figures of two for 21 in three overs and one for 19 in four overs respectively.
