T20 Challenge: Lions off the bottom of the table

The bizhub Highveld Lions survived a late Robbie Frylinck assault to hold on for narrow six-run win over the Hollywoodbets Dolphins in their latest T20 Challenge outing at Bidvest Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday.

After amassing a healthy 175/5, the hosts looked on course for victory thanks to a fine spell of bowling by Bjorn Fortuin, who took 3/23 in four tight overs.


T20 Challenge: Titans condemn Knights to bottom

A century second-wicket stand between Theunis de Bruyn and Patrick Kruger was not enough as the Multiply Titans clawed their way back to beat the VKB Knights by 10 runs in their T20 Challenge clash at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley on Sunday.

The pair put on 102 together, a record between the two teams, to leave their side on track in their pursuit of 169 to beat the defending champions.


T20 Challenge: Jonker slays Lions in PE

Christiaan Jonker delivered a timely 49-run blitz as the Warriors consolidated their second position on the T20 Challenge log with a superb six-wicket win over the bizhub Highveld Lions at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth on Friday.

The right-hander plundered five sixes and three fours in a magnificent 18-ball display of hitting to turn what was looking like a tricky pursuit of 153 into a dawdle for the hosts.


T20 Challenge: All-round Delport takes down Knights

Cameron Delport shone with bat and ball for the second time in three games as the Hollywoodbets Dolphins returned to winning ways with an eight-wicket win over the VKB Knights in their T20 Challenge clash at Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Friday.

The all-rounder, who hit a half-century and took four wickets in the visitors’ only other win this season, first claimed 3/26 with his medium pace to restrict the hosts to 153/4. He then crashed 36 off 24 balls to lead his side to what proved to be a comfortable chase after they reached their target with nine balls to spare.


T20 Challenge: Cobras seek further Pollard inspiration

Cape Cobras coach Paul Adams is hoping the decision to allow Kieron Pollard to lead them will inspire a season turnaround as they prepare to host the Hollywoodbets Dolphins in a T20 Challenge clash at PPC Newlands in Cape Town on Wednesday.

The West Indian superstar captained the struggling Cape side to a first win of the 2016/17 season last Friday against the Warriors, but they were back on the losing trail with defeat to the bizhub Highveld Lions on Sunday.


T20 Challenge: Phangiso earns Lions narrow D/L win

Mangaliso Mosehle struck 58 as the bizhub Highveld Lions won their first match of the T20 Challenge this season by ousting the BuildNat Cape Cobras by 3 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Sunday.

The hosts only faced 19.1 overs after winning the toss and batting – reaching 165/5 before rain interrupted proceedings. The heavy rain meant that a return looked unlikely, but conditions improved enough for the visitors to be set a revised target of 70 in six overs.


T20 Challenge: Walters helps Warriors shatter Knights

Three wickets from Basheer Walters shattered the VKB Knights’ top order and inspired an excellent 42-run bonus-point victory for the Warriors in their T20 Challenge clash at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Sunday.

The fast bowler removed the home side’s top three with only 23 on the board as they tried to chase down 158.


T20 Challenge: Dala, Von Berg set up Titans for bonus-point win

Junior Dala and Shaun von Berg shared six wickets as the Multiply Titans extended their excellent start to the ‎T20 Challenge season with 58-run bonus-point win over the Hollywoodbets Dolphins at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Sunday.

Seamer Dala bagged 3/30, while spinner Von Berg took 3/25 as Kevin Pietersen's debut was an unhappy one after the Durbanites could only manage a paltry 127/8 in pursuit of 186. The former England batsman made  24 and was the second best contributor for his side behind captain Morne van Wyk (41), but the rest of the Dolphins batted wilted.


T20 Challenge: David Miller ton undone by gutsy Titans

David Miller struck the second highest score in domestic T20 Challenge history but it was still not enough as the VKB Knights were beaten by the Multiply Titans with one ball to spare in their latest clash at Sahara Park Willowmoore in Benoni on Friday.

The Standard Bank Proteas star smashed a career-best unbeaten 120 (61 balls, 8 fours, 9 sixes), the second ton of his career, as the visitors amassed 185/6 after winning the toss and batting.
