Durban – One hundred seconds from the 4 Day Series Franchise campaign for Vaughn van Jaarsveld on the fourth day of the Hollywoodbets Dolphins clash with Multiply Titans at Kingsmead, helping the home team win a draw.
After reversing 195 runs in their second half to ask the Titans to bat again, the Dolphins reached 302 for eight, leading from 107 with more than 10 overs left in the match, when both sides decided they would call it a draw.
The Titans continued the morning how they finished the third night session with Eldred Hawkin who liked the Dolphins Bowlers.
Hawkin finally ran out of partners, finishing on 84 not out, with Tshepo Moreki skying the delivery of Okuhle Cele to Vaughn van Jaarsveld and then two one-eyed Alfred Mothoa then to be caught by goalkeeper Grant Roelofsen.
The goal gave Cele the third of the round and closed the Titans innings in 381.
The Dolphins start well with bats and negotiate their way past 50 without losing the goal. SJ Erwee was then arrested behind spinner Shaun von Berg for 17, the score at 62 running.
Cody Chetty was dismissed for 10 and Khaya Zondo and Van Jaarsveld put 78 challenging runs for the third goal because they reduced the deficit.
Zondo was fired for 25 and Dane Vilas followed for a duck.
Van Jaarsveld then stole the show as he stroked into the second century of the season. It was an easy knock from the left hand which hit 16 fours and six in his 133.
He is the next goal to fall, LBW to Mothoa with a score of 213, the Dolphins lead with 18 passes.
Sibz Mak only made 32 solid before he was caught behind and then Eathan Bosch was LBW six running then for five. The Dolphins were 238 for seven, leading the Titans with 43 runs.
A solid partnership between Grant Roelofsen and first-half hero Keshav Maharaj.
Maharaj was added to the first half of the century with 23 runs before he was caught on the side of the foot in a 42 partnership with Roelofsen who was firm.
Roelofsen and Lwandiswa Zuma then negotiated enough shipping for Titans captain Shaun von Berg to end the match.
Roelofsen fought with calm and the resolution when he ended 46 did not come out of 94 shipments. Zuma was solid when he faced 20 balls without scoring.
The Dolphins ended at 302 for eight.
There was a break in the domestic franchise season since November 16, the Super Mzansi League took the main stage.
The Hollywoodbets Dolphins will play the next 4-Day Franchise Series series against the bizhub Highveld Lions at Bivest Wanderers from December 19-22.
