Wynberg BHS Record Easy Win Against Grey High

Jason Smith made an unbeaten 54 to help Wynberg Boys High of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras to a seven-wicket victory over Grey High in the first match in the national finals of the Standard Bank Schools Pro20 Challenge at Sahara Park Newlands on Friday afternoon.

Grey High, representing the Chevrolet Warriors, won the toss and chose to bat first. Jaycin Snyman and captain Eddy Moore laid a good platform, with an opening partnership of 87 before Snyman was caught by Sabier Mallie off Nicky Zeeman for 41. He faced 48 balls and hit five fours and a six.
Moore and Curtis Samboer shared a second wicket stand of 40, which ended when Samboer skied a delivery from Dalton Kannemeyer and was caught by Andrew Haupt for 26 off 15 balls. He hit two fours and a six.

Grey finished on 147/2, with Moore contributing 59, including three boundaries.
Zeeman was the pick of the Wynberg bowlers, taking one for 17 in his four overs.

Chasing a target of 148 to win, Wynberg started well, with Tahir Samaai and Mallie putting on 50 for the first wicket, but they lost their wickets in successive overs. Mallie was caught by Dylan Blignaut off Samboer for 19, and six balls later, Samaai was caught and bowled by Shaakir Abrahams for 13.

Wynberg gradually began to reel in the runs and although they suffered a minor hiccup when David Bedingham was caught and bowled by Moore for 26 in the 15th over, there was very little doubt that they would win the match. They passed the winning total with 14 balls to spare, ending with a total of 151/3.

The number of extras conceded by Grey must be a cause for concern – there were 27, including 12 wides. Grey coach Neil Bielbe is likely to have stern words with his team ahead of their next fixture, against KES from the bizhub Highveld Lions, in Stellenbosch on Saturday morning.
