South African spin sinks Australia


Though not a nation traditionally known for its slow bowling options – at least not until the emergence of Imran Tahir – Northwest University, South Africa (NWU) had an off-spinner and a leg-spinner bowl them to a dominant position over University of Sydney, Australia (UoS) before the NWU batsmen closed the match out.

Off-spinner Ruan Haasbroek took 3 for 13, and leg-spinner Dyllan Matthews claimed 3 for 22, as they set about choking the UoS innings. Although the Australian side had begun rapidly, moving to 83 for 1 in the ninth over, they could only muster 157 for 9 in the end.

On a P Sara Oval surface that held no terrors, NWU fancied themselves to chase down the target, and their openers began with aplomb, putting on 58 brisk runs together for the first wicket. The innings would suffer a minor stutter when four wickets fell for 45 runs, but the victory came comfortably enough. The winning runs were scored in the 18th over, with the game’s top-scorer Janneman Malan still at the crease on 67 off 52 deliveries.

Janneman was named man of the match for his 67 not out from 52 balls.
