A blistering 77 not out off 42 balls from Grant Roelofsen helped the Dolphins to an emphatic ten wicket win over the SA Under 19 side, to guarantee their spot in the CSA T20 Knock Out play-offs on Sunday.
The Dolphins won the toss and bowled first in Bloemfontein and they took control of the match from the get-go.
Wickets fell regularly for the young side as the Dolphins bowlers controlled proceedings with the wickets being shared around the bowlers.
Captain Prenelan Subrayen took two wickets along with debutants Thando Ntini and Odirile Modimokoane who as a trio took six for 57.
Daryn Dupavillon and Jason Smith took one wicket each as the Dolphins were set 115 to win and top the group.
In reply the Dolphins weren’t troubled as they coasted to victory in thirteen overs with Keegan Petersen and Roelofsen taking the Dolphins over the line.
Roelofsen’s 77 included nine fours and four sixes while Petersen chipped in with 37 off 36 balls.
