Cape Town - Fifties from Rassie van der Dussen and Dominic Hendricks allowed the Highveld Lions to lift themselves off the foot of the One-Day Cup table with a three-wicket win over the Cape Cobras at Boland Park in Paarl on Friday evening.

Justin Ontong and Dane Vilas (42) got to work with a well-manufactured 82-run stand, with Ontong pushing on to score a vital 80. Ontong found willing partners after the dismissal of Vilas, with Aviwe Mgijima (58) and Dane Piedt (42) carrying the side over the 200 mark.

The Lions lost their way somewhat during this phase, but Wiaan Mulder had a hand in all five of the remaining wickets, assisting with two run outs and finishing with figures of 3-50 to restrict the Cobras to 244.

The visitors were well set thanks to an industrious 42-run opening stand between Van der Dussen and Reeza Hendricks (21), with the latter falling to the impressive Lizaad Williams, who finished with figures of 3-31, including three maidens.
