Cricket: Somerset's Franco Carstens Takes 9-for!

The Pinelands batsmen must have licked their lips when the Somerset College left-arm spinner, Franco Carstens marked out his run-up to begin his spell.

Chasing a total of 254 runs, Pinelands knew if they could get the better of the Somerset spinner they were going to be just that much closer to causing an upset.

However Franco Carstens produced his finest performance to date as he proceeded to single-handedly spin a web of confusion around the Pineland batters which saw them crumble to a paltry 129 all out.

Once the dust had settled Franco Carstens name stood out more than any other on the score sheet as he had taken all but one of the wickets to end with the astonishing figures of 9 wickets for 38 runs.

It was an incredible performance from the left arm orthodox spinner who helped Somerset set up a stunning victory. Well done Franco!
