Live Scoring – Lions v Warriors

Thami Tsolekile hit an unbeaten 88 from 167 deliveries in the morning session, to go with Stephen Cook's 95 on the opening day, which helped the Lions post a first innings total of 315 in their first innings.

In reply, Davy Jacobs scored a quick-fire 58 from 49 deliveries at the top of the order while Christiaan Jonker batted with the middle and lower order before he was dismissed by Imran Tahir for 68 from 63 deliveries.

Eddy Leie claimed four wickets for 50 in the 12.3 overs he bowled in the innings, while Tahir and De Bruyn picked up three wickets apiece for 66 and 33 runs respectively.

Going into tea, the Lions had a lead of 80 runs, but play was suspended due to lightning around the ground. Once the players came back onto the field, the Warriors' bowling attack took charge.

Captain Cook was first to go for two when he was caught by Ashwell Prince from the bowling of Andrew Birch. Cook’s opening partner, Gulam Body (1), was soon back in the pavilion too with Prince taking another catch, this time from a Walters delivery. A change of bowling brought a cluster of wickets, Ayabulela Gqamane came into the attack and immediately had Neil McKenzie caught behind for eight.

In his third over, Gqamane claimed yet another two wickets in as many balls, first he had Zander de Bruyn caught for six, then Pumelela Matshikwe was trapped leg before from his first delivery.

Gqamane finished with figures of 3-8 from his three overs before bad light stopped play early for the second day in a row.
