All-round Dolphins crush Warriors

An unbeaten half-century from Vaughn van Jaarsveld and a three-wicket haul from Craig Alexander were the cornerstones behind Dolphins' bonus-point victory against Warriors in Durban.

Opting to bat, Dolphins made 181 for 4 from their 20 overs. The team lost three wickets inside 10 overs, but Dwayne Bravo and Van Jaarsveld shared in a fourth-wicket stand which yielded 93 runs from just 49 balls. Bravo slammed two fours and three sixes during his 25-ball 43, while Van Jaarsveld scored 51 off 33 balls, with three fours and two sixes.

Warriors never really got going in their chase, and soon slumped to 33 for 5 by the eighth over. Somila Seyibokwe and Simon Harmer resisted with a 56-run stand for the sixth wicket, but they were never likely to chase down such a large total and were restricted to 127 for 8, handing Dolphins a 54-run win. Alexander finished with economical figures of 4-0-10-3, while Rabian Engelbrecht and Robbie Frylinck chipped in with two wickets apiece.
