Cape Town - A 10th career five-for by George Linde gave the Cape Cobras command after the opening day of their 4-Day Franchise Series encounter against the Dolphins in Oudtshoorn on Monday.

The Proteas spinner claimed six for 51 as the visitors were rolled over for 174 at the Recreation Ground, with the home side then reaching the close two down for 55.

That left them 119 runs in arrears, but with eight wickets standing, they were easily the winners on day one.

Linde led the way with his wickets, especially considering the bottom-of-the-table Dolphins had won the toss and batted.

They were all at sea in the face of the Cobras' bowling, with only South Africa duo Andile Phehlukwayo (61 off 83 balls, 11 fours) and Senuran Muthusamy (37) managing decent contributions.

They put on 97 together after their side had slumped to 61 for five to at least post a semi-respectable first-innings score.

After the Dolphins were dismissed in 70.3 overs, spinners Muthusamy (1/9) and Prenelan Subrayen (1/13) claimed the wickets of Janneman Malan (20) and Matthew Kleinveldt (12) to give their side something to cheer about by the close.
