Kimberley - Johannes van der Wath took 6 of the 16 wickets to fall as seamers dominated day two of the SuperSport Series match between the Chevrolet Knights and the Chevrolet Warriors at the Diamond Oval on Friday.

The Warriors wasted no time with the second new ball in wrapping up the Knights’ first innings as they subsided from the overnight 281/6 to 301 all out. Andrew Birch and Rusty Theron finished with 4 wickets each.

The Warriors then replied with an opening stand of 80 between Michael Price and Bevan Bennett before all 10 wickets fell for just 130 runs for the visitors to trail by 91 runs on the first innings. Van der Wath finished with 6/66.

The Knights lost two quick wickets in their second innings before bad light intervened but they still have a very useful overall lead of 108 runs.

Progress was not nearly as quick in the other two matches. There were lengthy weather delays between the Nashua Titans and the Nashua Dolphins at Sahara Willowmoore Park. The Titans quickly wrapped up the Dolphins’ first innings for 301 runs with Albie Morkel completing a five-wicket haul but the Titans only had the opportunity to bat for 11.2 overs to reach the close at 45/1.

There was a full day’s play at Paarl where the bizhub Highveld Lions were finally bowled out by the Nashua Mobile Cobras for 458. Zander de Bruyn took his overnight 131 to 157 (263 balls, 23 fours and a six) while Claude Henderson (5/90) and Vernon Philander (4/84) shared 9 wickets between them.

The Cobras made a steady reply without any batsmen going on to make a substantial score. They finished the day on 175/3 for an overall deficit of 283. Owais Shah’s unbeaten 56 (103 balls, 7 fours and 2 sixes) has been the best contribution so far.
