Lions v Guyana, CLT20 2010, Johannesburg
Lions Crush Guyana by Nine Wickets in CLT2019-Sep-2010 15:12:00 GMT
Johannesburg: Cameron's 78 and captain Petersen's 57 powered Highveld Lions to an emphatic nine-wicket victory over Guyana in their Champions League Twenty20 clash.
After choosing to bowl, they did not let the Guyanese get much apart from a brief came in the middle and towards the end. Ethan O'Reilly picked up 4 wickets but the others were good as well, though, they were a bit indisciplined.
They lost Vandiar early but that was the only blemish as Petersen and Cameron launched an unbeaten stand of 133 from 75 balls for the second wicket, cruising to victory! Both of them got their half-centuries, sharing as many as 8 sixes amongst them, 6 of which, came from Cameron, who smashed 78 from just 42 balls. The inexperienced Guyanese attack was under the hammer and received a beating. This huge win will definitely help Highveld in their net run-rate.
Richard Cameron gets the highest run scorer of the match award for his brilliant knock of 78 not out.
Ethan O'Reilly gets the man-of-the match for his 4/27 in his 4 overs. Praises Alexander for touching the 147 mark today with the ball and says that he could be quicker.
Guyana 148 for 9 (Jacobs 34, O'Reilly 4-27)
Herveld Lions 149 for 1 (Cameron 78*, Petersen 57*)
Result Herveld Lions won by nine wickets
