Bloemfontein - Left-arm spinner Tabraiz Shamsi claimed a five-wicket bag in his first Sunfoil Series game of the season as the Sunfoil Dolphins earned a 99-run lead in the first innings on day two their game against the Warriors at Buffalo Park.

Shamsi grabbed the big wicket of Ashwell Prince, and then ran through the lower order to dismiss the Warriors for 240 in response to the Dolphins’ total of 339.

The Dolphins lost Imraan Khan at the start of their second innings, but went to stumps on 34 for one, giving them a healthy overall lead of 133 at the midway point in the game.

Although the Dolphins were indebted to regulars Robbie Frylinck and Keshav Maharaj for the first two wickets of the day, new talents Shamsi and Daryn Dupavillon took it from there as they claimed eight wickets between them.

While Dupavillon bowled Colin Ackermann and had Simon Harmer caught behind, Shamsi dismissed Prince for 36 and wicketkeeper-batsman Athenkosi Dyili for 33 before rattling through the tail.

Colin Ingram was the only Warriors batsman to provide resistance as he batted almost four hours for an unbeaten 54.

Shamsi finished with figures of 5 for 68, while Dupavillon had 3 for 43 after bowling Basheeru-Deen Walters to bring the innings to a close.

Khan fell in the fourth over of the Dolphins’ second innings, but Divan van Wyk went to stumps on 25 not out and had Khaya Zondo for company.
