Duminy, Elgar centuries power Proteas to 388-run lead

first_img(REUTERS)-South Africa’s JP Duminy and Dean Elgar both scored centuries in a third-wicket partnership of 250 to drive the tourists to a 388-run lead over Australia at the end of the third day of the first Test yesterday.Australia removed both centurions around the tea break, as well as Temba Bavuma and captain Faf du Plessis in the last hour, but by then the damage had been done and the Proteas will go into day four on 390 for six.Quinton de Kock, who was dropped by Adam Voges on one, was at the crease unbeaten on 16 at the end of a long, hot day at the WACA, along with Vernon Philander, who had made 23 not out.South African paceman Dale Steyn was ruled out of the rest of the series with a fractured shoulder on Friday and will play no further part in the match, reducing the number of wickets Australia need to take.Steyn was a member of the Proteas team that chased down 414 to beat Australia at the WACA in 2008 but it was a debutant Duminy who scored the three runs off Mitchell Johnson that got the South Africans over the line.Now 32, Duminy looks to have played a key role in another Perth triumph after his brilliant 141 rammed home South Africa’s advantage after they had skittled Australia for 244 in reply to their 242 on Friday.Duminy faced 225 balls and hit 20 of them for fours with another going for six, overhauling partner Elgar before lunch and reaching his fifth test century with two runs to deep cover soon after the break.NERVOUS NINETIESIt was his first century in two years and his third against Australia, just reward for a masterclass of calm control and shot-making.The end came just as it looked like the pair of left-handers would bat through to tea, Peter Siddle benefiting from a DRS review when the technology revealed a nick off the bat that carried through to wicketkeeper Peter Nevill.Elgar did not have such a good experience on his previous visit to the WACA, having got a pair when he made his test debut at the ground in 2012, albeit on the winning team.Dogged and determined where Duminy was fluent, the 29-year-old reached his fifth test century half an hour before tea after a prolonged spell in the “nervous nineties”.His career-best 127 came off 316 balls and he had hit 17 fours and one six when Josh Hazlewood finally winkled him out after tea when he offered a tired shot and got an edge which Mitchell Starc took at gully.Starc should have caught Elgar on 81 when the batsman skied the ball to mid-off but he lost the ball in the Perth sun, tripped himself over trying to readjust his position and spilled it on the turf, to the despair of bowler Nathan Lyon.The left-arm paceman also accounted for Du Plessis (32), a fine edge taken behind by Nevill, while Hazlewood had Bavuma well caught by Usman Khawaja at deep square leg for eight but the collapse Australia needed never materialised.After Perth, the series continues in Hobart before concluding with a day-night Test at Adelaide Oval.SOUTH AFRICA 1st innings 242 (Q. de Kock 84, T.

Get on here and tell us how perfect Hamlin is and how we are all wrong. Report Reply 5 replies · active 292 weeks ago +9 Vote up Vote down Jane · 292 weeks ago I still have to question whether it is wise for one person to be on three different boards. Particularly in light of the controversy on the library board where that board member caused a family member who was an excellent asset to the library to leave. Just because a person volunteers for a board doesn’t mean they should be ON that board or any at all. Whoever chooses board members, look at little more closely at why someone wants to have their fingers in that many pies.

What is the controversy the director was upset about? Let’s settle it and move on. Seems as if someone was a little paranoid when they accused board members, so maybe the director should apologize for the upset. We are all a happy family!

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Editor’s note — The following is a report from a tape recording of the Wellington Housing Authority meeting held on Wednesday, Dec. 30. Sumner Newscow was not present for the meeting due to being out of town. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For the first time in two months the Wellington Housing Authority board met at Wellington Capital Manor. After a 30-minute executive session to discuss personnel, a “clear the air” session was held publicly thereafter. The message from the board — at least from this meeting — was to move forward and work together.The meeting came on the heels of WHA Chairman J.P. Buellesfeld’s resignation earlier in the week.Aloise Hutchison took over the reins as the interim chairman with Darlene Ferguson, Kelli McComb and Dennis Guinn in attendance. After regular business was conducted, the board went into executive secession, i.e. closed meeting, that included Wellington City Manager Roy Eckert and city council member Jim Valentine.Upon returning, Guinn addressed those in attendance.“Everybody in this room has a ton of questions, and even after six weeks to be honest with you, nobody really knows (what is the root of the controversy),” Guinn said. “We have decided that we can’t undo what has been done, but we have decided to move forward.”He said there would be no change in staffing and no change in board membership.“We have decided to shake hands and apologize and work for the betterment of the public,” Guinn said. “We are like a big family here at Wheat Capital Manor and sometimes big families have misunderstandings. This is what this has been.”An audience member asked if the new board member can be someone that served on another board. There had been question whether McComb served on too many boards.Guinn said that shouldn’t be an issue. He said it only applies if a city council member can serve on an authority or advisory board.The WHS board oversees the manor – an independent living center – that operates under the stipulations of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The council will appoint the new member which will replace Buellesfeld. The unexpired time will run until April 30, 2016. Those who wish to serve on the board can fill out an application at the Wellington City Administration building.The following press release was sent by Wellington City Clerk Shane Shields concerning the appointment:Applications will be accepted through January 15, 2015, for a vacancy on the Housing Authority Board.  The appointment will be for the remainder of the term which expires April 30, 2016.  The position vacant is required to be filled by a resident of the City.The care and operation of the Wheat Capital Manor is under the control and management of the Housing Authority Board.  The Board is authorized to employ an executive director and agents and employees both permanent and temporary; and to delegate to one or more of them such powers or duties as the Authoirty may require or deem proper.  The Housing Authority meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month.The Governing Body asks that anyone interested in being considered for appointment to the position submit an application to the City Clerk’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on January 15, 2015.  The application form is available in the City Clerk’s Office or is available on the City website www.cityofwellington.net on the Board and Commissions page.For questions or additional information, please contact Shane Shields, City Clerk, ph 620-326-2811.The rest of the meeting was an airing out of grievances by both sides.Ferguson said the accusation that she met in a secret meeting with two members in violation of the Kansas open meetings act was unfounded and untrue.McComb said she would like a public apology from Wellington Council member Jim Valentine.Valentine said he did what he did because people came to him asking him for help.Hutchison said the community owes Hamlin an apology especially for the hurtful comments on Sumner Newscow by anonymous bloggers.Audience member Larry Schalk said he didn’t think the Buellesfeld resignation would have occurred if transparency would have been applied.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
