Johannesburg - The sun shone brightly on Chris Morris at the Wanderers on Sunday where the Highveld Lions hosted the Dolphins in their Sunfoil series match.

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.

Besides the wicket of Miller, Morris took the wickets of Cody Chetty, Robbie Frylinck and Dane Paterson.
