Warriors crushes Wayamba

PORT ELIZABETH: Eastern Cape Warriors defeated Wayamba Elevens by seven wickets to make a flying start to its Champions League campaign here on Saturday.

After Wayamba won the toss and made 153 for nine, Warriors recovered from the early exit of opener Ashwell Prince. It reached the target in 18.2 overs, wicketkeeper Mark Boucher top scoring with an unbeaten 40.

Justin Kreusch (37 not out), Colin Ingram (34) and skipper Davy Jacobs (26) were the other contributors. “It is great to get off to a winning start. Playing at home is a major motivation and we do not feel any pressure. We also play together all the time rather than coming together for tournaments, and that helps,” said Jacobs.

Wayamba skipper Jehan Mubarak was not downcast. “We can do much better than today. I do not regret batting first although we needed another 20 or 30 runs and did not score enough during the last five overs.”

Terrible start

Wayamba had a disastrous start, losing two wickets in the first over.

Mahela Jayawardene was the first to go, edging Juan Theron to slip. Mahela Udawatte left four balls later, top-edging Theron to Nicky Boje at mid-on.

Opener Jeevantha Kulatunga (59) and middle-order batsman Kusal Janith Perera (39) were the only ones to put up a fight. Theron finished with three for 23 while Makhaya Ntini took two wickets off successive deliveries.

The scores: Wayamba 153 for nine in 20 overs (J. Kulatunga 59, K.J. Perera 39, J. Theron three for 23, M. Ntini two for 34) lost to Eastern Cape Warriors 156 for three in 18.2 overs (M. Boucher 40 n.o., J. Kreusch 37 n.o., C. Ingram 34, D. Jacobs 26) . — AFP
