Full scorecard

Morris achieved the best bowling record in a match and an innings for the Lions taking eight for 44, beating Garnet Kruger's previous record of eight for 112.

The fast bowler finishing with a match analysis of 40.1-9-101-12.

The Dolphins started the day needing 92 runs for victory with six wickets in hand, but instead lost by 53 runs.
