In the three-day match the Inland side were hanging on at the close, escaping with a draw in the end. Inland skipper Andre van Vuuren had a good match with bat and ball, though, taking six for 78 in 30 overs in the Coastal first innings and scoring 40 and 47 not out.
The subsequent one-dayer saw the home side, Coastal, brush off Gerry Penford’s century and fellow Varsity player Garry Hampson’s fifty, to win by five wickets.
