Dolphins, WP and Badgers Complete Double Winning Weekend in T20 Cup

The Hollywoodbets Dolphins, Six Gun Grill Western Province and the Six Gun Grill Garden Route Badgers secured impressive back-to-back wins this weekend following impressive 50- ove wins in the latest round of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) Women’s Provincial T20 Cup on Sunday, 30 October 2022.

The Dolphins edged the DP World Lions by 13 runs in a tightly contested encounter in Durban, with Western Province overcoming a weather interruption in Cape Town to defeat the Fidelity Titans by nine runs through the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) and remain perfect with four wins from four.

Meanwhile, the Garden Route Badgers continued on from their 50-over victory over the One-Day Cup defending champions, the North West Dragons the previous day, to earn a comfortable seven wicket triumph in front of their home support in Oudtshoorn.

In Division Two, Free State flexed their muscles once again over Kei in Mthatha, while the KwaZuluNatal Inland Tuskers and Northern Cape came out victorious over Limpopo and Mpumalanga, respectively.

At the Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium, the Dolphins were sent into bat by the Lions, a decision that looked to be a fruitful one as the away side picked up wickets at regular intervals to help restrict the hosts to 107 / 8 after 20 overs as Alexandra Candler (27) once again top-scored. With the ball, the Dolphins found their own rhythm as SA U19 Women all-rounder, Seshnie Naidu claimed fantastic figures of three for six to help bowl out the Lions for 94, falling 13 runs short despite a 22-ball 35 from the experienced Kirstie Thomson as the Dolphins picked up their second win of the season.

At the majestic Six Gun Grill Newlands Stadium, the unbeaten Western Province showed their depth of talent within their squad as Momentum Proteas all-rounder Nadine de Klerk shone with the bat from the middle-order, smashing 61* runs off 37 deliveries, including eight fours and two sixes as WP landed on 124 / 5 after 20 overs.

Following a lengthy rain delay, the second innings was eventually adjusted to 10 overs with a revised target of 73 for the Titans. Faced with a tight game, the Province bowlers remained disciplined with their lines and lengths as they limited the visitors to 64 / 6 to win by nine runs via DLS and top the T20 table.

In the final Division One clash, the Badgers had Khayakazi Mathe (2 / 18) and Marnazelle Rabie (2 / 24) lead the charge with the ball to keep the Dragons batters honest at the crease, with Izel Cilliers (25) top-scoring for the away side as they finished on 102 / 5 in their allotted overs.

The Badgers made light work of their chase, with Tazmin Brits transferring her 50-over form into the shorter format with an undefeated 46* (47) in a vital opening stand with Annerie Dercksen (23) as the home team reached the target with 3.5 overs to spare.

The CSA women’s domestic season resumes on Saturday, 12 November with the One-Day Cup and T20 Cup action continuing across the country.
