Sublime day at The Oval

Watching cricket at The Oval


???????????????????????????????The weather gods basked The Oval in glorious sunshine yesterday (Sunday, November3), but could not stop the Chevrolet Warriors from chasing down the 222 target set by the Sunfoil Dolphins in their Momentum Cup one-day match. The visiting team may have won the game by two wickets with 11 balls to spare, but the spectators thoroughly enjoyed the action and unique ambience at The Oval.
At the end of the day, the Dolphin batting line-up did not fire against some clever bowling by the Port Elizabeth team and only some lusty blows by the lower middle order helped the home team to a somewhat flattereing 222 total.
The Warriors never really were under any pressure and set about the task purposefully. Some key breakthroughs at the right time ensured the match remained a closely-run affair, and provided plenty of excitemnet for the spectators.
