East London - Daryn Dupavillon took seven wickets in the day as the Dolphins closed in on victory over the Warriors after day three of their Sunfoil Series clash in East London on Saturday. 

The fast bowler first took 5/49, his seventh career five-wicket haul, to help roll over the hosts for 209 at Buffalo Park. 

He then took 2/28 in the follow-on innings as the Warriors fell to 137/7, still 104 short of making the visitors bat again. 

With most of day two lost because of inclement weather, the Dolphins had declared overnight on 450/8.

And they immediately put their opponents under pressure by reducing them to 42/5. Despite an unbeaten 86 (111 balls, 11 fours) from Yaseen Vallie, there was little else in terms of resistance offered by the Warriors, who were all out in 45.2 overs. 

Apart from Dupavillon, fellow fast bowler Craig Alexander also shone with 4/45. 

More trouble then followed for the home side as they stumbled to 41/5, before Jerry Nqolo’s 54 (90 balls, 9 fours) not out offered some stability. 

However, the Dolphins bowlers again proved too much for the home side with Andile Phehlukwayo (3/23) the pick of the bowlers.
