Lions seal second place



The bizhub Highveld Lions sealed second place in the Sunfoil Series by beating the Chevrolet Warriors by 125 runs at Axxess St George's on Sunday.

Full Scorecard – Warriors v Lions

Despite a valiant batting effort from Arno Jacobs 73 (78), Adrian McLaren 64* (113) and Wayne Parnell 58 (67), the hosts were all out for 264 in their second innings with Chris Morris picking up four wickets to help the Johannesburg-based franchise seal the win.

The game got off to a see-saw start on the first day when the visitors won the toss and chose to bat first, but they were dismissed for 157 in their first innings and the Warriors stuttered to 135 all out in reply.

Centuries from Alviro Petersen and Neil McKenzie helped the visitors to 367 all out in their second innings, setting the hosts a target of 390 for victory.

In their second innings, the Warriors got off to a poor start with both Michael Price and Davy Jacobs falling early on the third day.

Arno Jacobs tried his best to hold the fort and while wickets tumbled around him, he held on to take to the crease on the final day, but was dismissed early on, caught leg before by Morris.

Parnell put up a fight, but was trapped in front of his stumps by Imran Tahir and the hosts were starting to wobble on 209-6.

Simon Harmer and Andrew Birch were both out trapped in front of their stumps by Cliffe Deacon, and Ayabulela Gqamane was also out for a duck trying to go for a big shot off Tahir.

Last man out Gurshwin Rabie misplayed a ball from Deacon, but had his stumps removed instead and McLaren was stranded on 65 at the other end as the Lions wrapped up the win.

McKenzie picked up the man-of-the-match award for his 46 in the first innings and 104 in the second.
