When the batsmen retired for the day Johan Botha was undefeated on 55 and and Darryl Brown had yet to get of the mark.

The Warriors who were invited to bat were soon in trouble with the Dolphins fast bowler Johann Louw castling Michael Smith with the third ball of the first over.

Smith's dismissal brought Ingram to the crease and together Jon Jon Smuts set about repairing the innings.

However, Smuts departed in the tenth over, which precipitated a steady flow of batsmen making their way back to the dressing room.

Botha's arrival at the crease was like breath of fresh air as he and Ingram forged a sixth- wicket partnership of 83.

With the score on 217 Ingram was caught by Jon Kent of the bowling of Quinton Friend.

The top order batsman had struck 13 fours in his 214-ball innings in a stay of 15 minutes shy of six hours.
