Benoni - Proteas limited overs captain AB de Villiers made a controversial return to the crease when he was dismissed for obstructing the field in a domestic cricket match in Benoni on Sunday.

Live scorecard

De Villiers, playing his first game in six weeks after recovering from a broken hand, made 12 runs for the Titans in their 1 Day Cup game against the Knights.

After taking a run, De Villiers held his line, and Ryan McLaren missed with his attempt at the wickets.

Following some enthusiastic appeals by the Knights player, umpire Lubalalo Gcuma ruled that De Villiers was in the wrong, and sent him back to the change rooms.

Tail-ender Rowan Richards was also dismissed for obstructing the field as the Titans were bundled out by the visitors for 157 runs in 38.4 overs.

The Knights need 158 runs to secure their first win of the competition.
