Muthusamy stars as Dolphins make a fist of rain marred draw:

Durban – Despite the rain denying the Hollywoodbets Dolphins any chance of realising their plans for a brave end-of-season challenge in the Sunfoil Series, they made a fist of their match against the Warriors that ended in the inevitable draw after two days were lost to bad weather in Durban.

Resuming at 245/5 the Warriors chased runs on the final day while left arm spinner Senuren Muthusamy took wickets at regular intervals to finish with a career-best haul of seven wickets for 83 runs.

The visitors declared on 320/9, leaving the Dolphins 76 overs at the end of the match to make inroads into the Eastern Cape side’s first innings lead.

SJ Erwee was an early casualty before Vaughan van Jaarsveld had his stump broken in the fifth over of the innings by Sisanda Magala, leaving the home side at 16/2.

Hero with the ball Muthusamy then stabilised the ship with Jason Oakes, adding 63 runs for the third wicket before Oakes fell to 19 year-old Lutho Sipamla, who also accounted for Andile Phehlukwayo four runs later.

Dane Vilas then joined Muthusamy at the crease and the pair made merry as they carried their side to 147 before Vilas departed for a bright 47 off 28 deliveries.

Muthusamy held the rest of innings together, getting some support from Okhule Cele who added 20, before Kerwin Mungroo was dismissed to close the innings on 211, Muthusamy unbeaten on 84, and the match was abandoned as a draw.

The Hollywoodbets Dolphins and the Warriors both earned six match points from the final Sunfoil Series match of their season, which was truncated by two days of rain.
