Ackerman and Bosch heroics guide Dolphins to victory

After 10 games, the Dolphins sit third in the CSA T20 Challenge table.

A MEMORABLE eighth wicket stand between Marques Ackerman and Eathan Bosch rescued the Hollywoodbets Dolphins and helped them to a 19 run win over the Auto Investment North West Dragons in the CSA T20 Challenge on Sunday.

The Dolphins had Ackerman and Bosch to thank after they fell to 37/7 when the pair got together at the JB Marks Oval cricket ground in Potchefstroom.

Their partnership was worth 134 from just over twelve overs to get the Dolphins to a handy 173 for eight from their 20 overs.

Ackerman finished with 72 from 46 balls while Bosch finished with 66 from 38 balls.

In reply it was Dolphins seamer Okuhle Cele who was the chief destroyer picking up 3/28 as the Dolphins restricted the Dragons to 154 for nine. Ottniel Baartman also took 2/28 in his four overs.

Khaya Zondo was responsible for two crucial run-outs which aided the Dolphins’ efforts in the field.

The Hollywoodbets Dolphins will now face the Momentum Multiply Titans at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium on Wednesday, 10 April.

Result:  Hollywoodbets Dolphins 173/8 (20 overs)-Auto Investment North West Dragons 154/9 (20 overs) [Hollywoodbets Dolphins win by 19 runs]
