Stephen Cook and Aiden Markram shared a firm, 167-run opening stand to give the Powerade South Africa ‘A’ team a good start on Day One of the second and last four-day match at Senwes Park on Saturday. The hosts are one-nil up in the two-match series.

Cook, who was unlucky to miss out on what would have been a well-deserved century, fell on 98 (205 balls, 9 fours, 1 six) to Shahbaz Nadeem after Markram’s 73-run innings (145 balls, 6 fours, 1 six) was halted by Krishnappa Gowtham five overs prior.
