Rain plays spoilsport as Knights: KwaZulu Natal Inland and Mpumalanga are eliminated from Group B of the CSA T20 national competition. The biggest surprise in Group B of the T20 Provincial Cup. The CSA T20 national competition, came from the sky when rain completely washed away one game. And greatly reduced another to tarnish the game in the normally dry Bloemfontein. The Knights and Titans, both first division clubs, advance to the quarterfinals, with KwaZulu Natal Inland and Mpumalanga eliminated. The Knights were the strongest of the four teams, clinching a Sixwicket victory. Over the Titans before a convincing victory over the KwaZulu Natal Inland team. They would have wished for all the points in the final against Mpumalanga, but the game was abandoned on Thursday afternoon.
The Titans, however, staggered but successfully defended 66 in a seven-plus game against Mpumalanga, who lost both games. A brave team from KwaZulu Natal Inland couldn’t keep up with the Knights or Titans, but they beat Mpumalanga handsomely.
Runs for Rilee Rossouw
Rilee Rossouw already draws attention to her return. She scored 73 of 51 balls undefeated to anchor the Knights’ 144 chases against the Titans and then scored 67 of 47 balls to help the Knights score 154 of 5 profitable against KwaZulu Natal Inland. The two and a half centuries of him placed him second on the scorer charts behind Zubayr Hamza and possibly again on the national radar.
Delport does the business
Another returnee is Cameron Delport, who played for South Africa before becoming something of a day laborer. Delport has an impressive lineup of teams, including franchises in the PSL, CPL, and the Shpageeza Afghan Cricket League, and has now signed up for KwaZulu Natal Domestic. He made an instant statement with his 39 Ball 72 that he did not knock out in his 113 successful chase against Mpumalanga, and while it may be too late for him to continue pushing for an international career, he is guaranteed to be entertained.
