Ten Doeschate sees Otago home
Ryan ten Doeschate saw his side home as Otago Volts beat Kandurata Maroons by six wickets, in the third match of the qualifying group of the Champions League Twenty20 at Mohali on Wednesday.
The South-African-born Dutch international smashed 5 sixes on his way to 64 from just 32 balls, before he holed out in the deep off the bowling of Dilhara Lokuhettige, who picked up three wickets.
However the damage had already been done as left-handed James Neesham played the perfect cameo role at the end of the innings, hitting a quick-fire 32 from 19 balls, to finish the match.
The New Zealand franchise have all but secured the spot in the tournament proper with two wins from two matches, while Kandurata suffered their second successive defeat.
