WP Blitz down NW to remain unbeaten in CSA T20 Challenge

Six Gun Grill Western Province Blitz secured a bonus point win after defeating North West Dragons by 84 runs on Tuesday. They remain unbeaten after 4 rounds of matches in the CSA T20 Challenge and top the log.

Blitz Captain Wayne Parnell won the toss and elected to bat first in a top-of-the-table clash against the North West Dragons.

The WP Blitz were off to a good start, with opener Jonathan Bird top scoring with 53 off 44 (5 boundaries and 2 maximums).

Captain Wayne Parnell’s 33* off 17 (2 boundaries and 2 sixes) and Dane Vilas’s 31 of 20 (3 boundaries and 1 six), set a good ending to the innings to see the Blitz set the target of 165 runs.

Dragons’ spinner, Senuran Muthusamy recorded 4/20 in his 4 overs, claiming 3 wickets in the 18th over.

North West Dragons batters had little to no response to the Blitz bowlers. With 4 wickets down by the end of Powerplay the Dragons were bowled out for only 80 runs in 17.4 overs.

Beuran Hendricks (4/20 in 4 overs) struck first, dismissing Senuran Muthusamy before he could score any runs after 3 balls faced, Wesley Marshall for 15, Taheer Isaacs (0) before Delano Potgieter was caught by Wayne Parnell for 1 after 6 balls faced.

Junaid Dawood recorded 3/22 in his four-overs. Basheer Walters 0/11 (4 overs), Mihlali Mpongwana 2/11 (2.4 overs) and skipper Wayne Parnell 1/13 (3 overs) dominated as WP Blitz destroyed the Dragons line-up, securing a massive 84-run (and a bonus point) win.
