Cape Town -  An attacking century by Dane Vilas put the Dolphins in a strong position at the halfway stage of their Sunfoil Series encounter against the Highveld Lions at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Friday.

The right-hander completed his 16th career ton as the visitors closed on 318 for seven in reply to the 246 of the hosts - a lead 72.

Vilas, playing as on opener in the absence of Morne van Wyk, went on to record 128 (152 balls, 19 balls, 1 six) to lead a strong reply by the KwaZulu-Natal side.

Senuran Muthusamy provided good support for the veteran wicketkeeper with 69 (160 balls, 8 fours), while there were useful 40s from Vaughn van Jaarsveld (42) and Calvin Savage (46 not out).

Beuran Hendricks (3/61) and Aaron Phangiso (3/62) picked up three wickets apiece for the Lions, who earlier failed to add much to their overnight score of 207 for seven.

Mangaliso Mosehle ended with 42 and Sean Jamison (22 not out), with debutants Okuhle Cele (3/19) and Ethan Bosch (3/43) the best of the bowlers with three wickets each.
