Cape Town - Shaun von Berg finished with 10 wickets in the match as the Titans continued their resurgence with an excellent innings and 50-run victory over the Cape Cobras at Newlands in on Saturday.
 
The reigning champions, who made a patchy start to the season with two successive losses, made it two wins in two early on day three after rolling over the struggling hosts for just 115.
 
Spinner Von Berg was at the heart of the visitors’ success, claiming a superb 5/25 in 10 overs to condemn the Cobras to a third loss in four matches. The 30-year-old also took 5/88 in the first innings to end with 10/113, the fourth time in his career he had claimed a 10-wicket match haul.
 
The home side had started the day on 37/3 and needing a further 128 to make the Titans bat again.

But they lost veteran opener Andrew Puttick (27) inside the opening four overs when he was bowled by Lungi Ngidi (2/21).
 
Von Berg then claimed three of the remaining six wickets to fall, including that of Justin Ontong for 20.
 
Stiaan van Zyl finished as the top-scorer on 32 not out, but there was little support from the rest of his Cobras’ team-mates.
 
Titans captain Henry David also chipped in with 2/22 as his team secured an impressive 19.92 points for their efforts.
 
The Cobras managed only 5.7 points and stay rooted to the bottom of the table.
