Proteas Go Past 200

by | Jul 30, 2007

Conditions have improved in Hazelaarweg, Rotterdam, where the South African women’s cricket team are playing Netherlands in a historic one-off four-day test.

After losing the whole of day two to rain on Sunday, both teams would have been happy to get back onto the park, as South Africa resumed on 159/5, with Daleen Terblanche unbeaten on 60.
A short while ago, South Africa were 220/9, having added 61 runs for the loss of four wickets, since play resumed at 10:30 on Monday morning.
On Saturday, opener Daleen Terblanche scored a fine unbeaten half-century, to take South Africa to 159-5 on a weather-curtailed opening day.
Put into bat by the Netherlands, South Africa made a confident start when the two Terblanches, Daleen and Claire, put on 72 runs for the first wicket.
The partnership ended when 22-year-old Claire fell to Mandy Kornet, who earned the distinction of picking up the first test wicket for the Netherlands, ending Terblanche’s debut innings of 30.
South African skipper Cri-Zelda Brits replaced Claire Terblanche, and played a few exquisite shots to dominate the 29-run partnership with Daleen Terblanche, by scoring 21.
Brits became the first of two wickets for Caroline de Fouw, who finished the day with figures of 13-0-21-2, while opening bowler Jolet Hartenhof also enjoyed a successful first day with figures of 2-41.
When stumps were drawn on day one, that saw only 59.2 overs bowled, Daleen Terblanche was undefeated on a flawless 60, a career best for the 37-year-old’s, after scores of 25, 2, 4, 12, 41 and 19 in her previous six innings in three Tests.
