The Dolphins got their 1-Day Cup title defence off to a perfect start over the weekend with back-to-back victories in Potchefstroom.
Opening proceedings at Senwes Park against the Titans in Pool A on Saturday, the Durbanites bagged their first win by 76 runs before smashing the Knight by 53 runs on Sunday.
The matches were the only ones to take place on the opening weekend in the Potch bubble, with the teams in Pool B only getting their campaign underway on January 22.
As it stands, though, it’s coach Grant Morgan’s Dolphins that will be smiling.
In Saturday’s first match, spin-bowling allrounder Senuran Muthusamy stole the show with his late knock of 70* off 67 balls to help the Dolphins to 272/7, before taking 2/39 to help restrict the Titans to just 196/8.
The Dolphins again batted first on Sunday and this time it was opening batsman Grant Roelofsen, who scored 65 in the first match, who top-scored with 92.
Proteas middle-order batsman David Miller chipped in with 57 as the Dolphins scored 290/8 in their 50 overs against the Knights.
Veteran Robbie Frylinck then produced a frustrating eight overs, conceding just 14 runs while bagging two wickets to put the Knights under pressure.
Prenelan Subrayen and Ruan de Swardt bagged two wickets each as the Dolphins bowled out their opponents for just 237 runs.
The two losing teams, the Titans and the Knights, will clash at 10am today.
