RAM SLAM T20: Levi takes a leaf out of Gayle's book

Richard Levi hammered one of the fastest fifties of the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge as the Nashua Cape Cobras beat the Sunfoil Dolphins by seven wickets in a 10-over game to move up to second on the table.

Levi went to his half-century in just 25 balls, narrowly slower than Chris Gayle’s 21-ball fifty against the Warriors two weeks ago, which ensured that the Cobras chased down a target of 85 with four balls to spare.

A lengthy rain shower at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead delayed the start of the game and reduced its length by half, and when it finally got underway the Dolphins threw everything at their visitors.


RAM SLAM T20: Davids puts Titans back on winning trail

The Unlimited Titans made their first scalp of the RAM SLAM T20 a big one, as Henry Davids’ superb 75 gave them a 21-run victory over the table-topping bizhub Highveld Lions at Sahara Park Willowmoore.

Davids shrugged off a couple of potentially unsettling rain delays, which reduced the game to 16 overs per side, to set the Titans on their way to a formidable score of 161 for six.

Faced with such a stiff task the Lions needed the returning Chris Gayle to come good for them, but once the Jamaican was dismissed for just 11 by Ethy Mbhalati, they lacked the firepower to get anywhere close.


RAM SLAM T20: Smuts keeps Warriors in playoff contention

Jon-Jon Smuts bettered Andre Russell with both bat and ball to mastermind an eight-wicket win over the Chevrolet Knights and keep the Chevrolet Warriors’ slim hopes in the RAM SLAM T20 alive.

Smuts took 1 for 21 in four overs as the Knights were kept to 146 for four despite Russell’s onslaught, and then hit an unbeaten 73 from 56 balls, which included a six off Russell to win the game with three balls to spare.

While Smuts deservedly took the plaudits, and both the Ram Deliverer and Ram Slammer awards, credit was also due to the Warriors bowling at the top of the innings after they had won the toss and inserted their opposition.


Muirhead swapped with Beer in Big Bash League

The KFC T20 Big Bash League’s Trade Week #2 wrapped up at 2pm today with the League’s first player trade recorded. James Muirhead will move from the Melbourne Stars to the Perth Scorchers in a direct trade for Michael Beer, who moves to the Stars from the Scorchers.

RAM SLAM T20: Warriors up for a good fight

User Rating: / 2

The Chevrolet Warriors are gearing themselves up for a scrap to the finish of the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge as they look to pull off an unlikely turnaround and qualify for the playoff.

The Warriors have won just one of their first five games, putting them 11 points behind third place, and captain, Colin Ingram, wants his side to recall some of their old fighting spirit when they take on the Chevrolet Knights at Buffalo Park in Friday’s televised game.

“We need to win five from five. I’ve been involved in this team for some time and it’s always been up for a good scrap,” said Ingram. “Once you get a few wins going then you never know. We’ve got to go flat-out on Friday.”


RAM SLAM T20: 'The Big Daddy' is back for the Lions

User Rating: / 1

The bizhub Highveld Lions will have the might of Chris Gayle back in their line-up on Friday as they look to maintain their massive lead at the top of the RAM SLAM T20 standings with a sixth straight win.

The Lions won both of their games last weekend in spite of Gayle’s injury-enforced absence, but will have the Jamaican back at the top of the order for their clash with The Unlimited Titans at Sahara Park Willowmoore.


RAM SLAM T20: Cobras wary of high risk Dolphins

User Rating: / 1

The Sunfoil Dolphins are confident that they will have Dwayne Bravo and Cody Chetty back in their line-up for an all-important RAM SLAM T20 clash with the Nashua Cape Cobras at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Friday.

Bravo and Chetty were both absent as the Dolphins were bowled out for 82 by the Chevrolet Knights on Sunday - the West Indian was struggling with a hamstring problem while Chetty had a quad strain.

Although a final call will be taken on match day, it is expected that the duo will be fit to take on one of the Dolphins’ main rivals for the playoff spots.


RAM SLAM T20: Knights rout Dolphins, then frustrated by rain

A brilliant performance with the ball by the Chevrolet Knights went to waste on Sunday evening when rain came to the aid of the Sunfoil Dolphins in the final game of the RAM SLAM T20 triple-header at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead.

Andre Russell led a Knights rout that saw the Dolphins bowled out for just 82 - their lowest ever total in domestic Twenty20 - only for the rain to arrive during the innings break and force an abandonment.
