Cape Town - Rookies Jason Smith and Aviwe Mgijima joined the Newlands run fest on the final day of the Sunfoil Series clash between the Cape Cobras and the Warriors as the match in Cape Town ended in a high-scoring draw on Sunday.

Smith hit 63 (99 balls, 8 fours, 1 six) and Mgijima made 54 (104 balls, 5 fours) - the pair both playing in the fourth franchise matches of their careers - as the hosts amassed 567/7 in reply to the visitors’ 525/7 declared.

Both totals were the highest against each other, in a match where bat dominated ball and only 14 wickets fell over the course of the four days.

There were three centurions - Colin Ackermann (146), Andrew Puttick (124) and Omphile Ramela (170) - to go along with six half-centurions.

Among the bowlers, Basheer Walters was the most successful with 2/79, while Simon Harmer took 2/176 from a marathon 69 overs of spin.

The result at least provided some respite for the Cobras, who had lost both previous matches of the season to date. The Capetonians, who had resumed the final day on 374/3, took 2.82 points from the game.

The Warriors secured 4.98 points after one loss and one win from their first two matches.
