Road Safety World Series 2022: Dominant South Africa Legends beat New Zealand Legends by 9 wickets in a one-sided contest

0

Chasing
a
below-par
target
of
just
100
off
120
balls,
South
African
batters
made
it
look
like
a
cake
walk
and
they
cruised
to
a
big
win
in
13.3
overs,
with
39
balls
to
spare.

The
opener
Morne
van
Wyk
(14)
was
the
only
South
African
wicket
to
perish
but
not
before
he
shared
a
stand
of
34
runs
in
6
overs
with
his
partner
Andrew
Puttick.

Puttick

who
was
dismissed
cheaply
in
the
previous
game

left
the
New
Zealand
bowlers
bruised
and
battered
and
slammed
a
36-ball
51*
and
finished
the
match
in
style
with
a
six,
four,
and
six
off
Neil
Broom.
The
left-handed
batter’s
innings
was
laced
with
four
boundaries
and
three
sixes.
Alviro
Petersen
(29*
off
23)
shared
an
unbeaten
stand
of
66
runs
and
contributed
to
his
team’s
big
win.

Earlier,
NZ
Legends
had
a
forgettable
start
to
their
campaign
as
their
batting
failed
to
live
up
to
the
expectations
as
the
Ross
Taylor-led
side
could
only
muster
99
runs
for
the
loss
of
eight
wickets
in
20
overs.

The
entire
NZ
Legends
batting
lineup
looked
rusty
and
the
Kanpur
track
which
was
offering
a
lot
of
assistance
to
the
spinners
possibly
added
up
to
their
woes.

The
South
African
bowlers,
especially
spinners,
hardly
allowed
the
New
Zealand
batters
to
free
their
arms
right
from
the
powerplay.
Accessing
the
nature
of
the
pitch
brilliantly,
SA
skipper
Jonty
Rhodes
operated
his
bowlers
intelligently.

Off-spinner
Johan
Botha
started
proceedings
with
the
new
ball
for
SA
and
struck
on
the
third
ball
and
sent
opener
Anton
Devcich
back
for
a
golden
duck.
He
then
dismissed
another
opener
Aaron
Redmond
in
the
next
over
and
pushed
the
opposition
on
the
backfoot.

The
BlackCaps
had
high
hopes
from
their
captain
and
batting
mainstay
Ross
Taylor

who
stepped
into
the
middle
to
a
rapturous
response

but
he
too
was
trapped
in
front
by
Botha,
leaving
his
team
in
dire
straits.
Botha
grabbed
his
four-for
by
crashing
through
Neil
Broom’s
gates
and
NZ
were
35
for
4
in
6.2
overs.

Once
Botha
finished,
leg-spinner
Thandi
Shabalala
joined
the
party
and
started
troubling
the
middle-order
batters.
The
right-arm
tweaker
returned
with
impressive
figures
of
3
for
9
from
his
quota
of
four
overs.
While
Botha
conceded
11
from
his
4
overs.
Together
the
duo
accounted
for
seven
New
Zealand
wickets
from
their
8
overs
and
conceded
just
20
runs.

Dean
Brownlie
was
the
highest-scorer
for
NZ
as
the
right-handed
batter
posted
run-a-ball
48
but
found
no
support
from
the
other
end
as
SA
bowled
17
overs
of
spin.
