Kimberley - Corne Dry finished with five wickets as the Knights wrapped up a comprehensive 10-wicket victory over the Highveld Lions early on the third day of their domestic four-day clash at the Diamond Oval, in Kimberley, on Saturday.

The medium pacer bagged two of the remaining three wickets on day three, to finish with five for 27 as the visitors, who were the log leaders heading into the third round of games, were rolled over for 72 in their second innings.

That left the home side needing just 15 runs to win the game and they did so in 2.5 overs.

Resuming on 29 for seven overnight, Hardus Viljoen (one) was first to fall when he edged Dry to wicketkeeper Lefa Mosena in the fourth over of the morning.

Werner Coetsee and Quinton Friend then combined to run out Pumelela Matshikwe for a duck, before top-scorer Neil McKenzie was last man out for 35 -- the veteran batsman caught by Gihahn Cloete off Dry.

Reeza Hendricks (two) and Dean Elgar (nine) raced to the victory target to hand their side a first win of the season.
