The slow left-armer sent down an impressive 17 dot balls out of 24 that left the visiting Central Franchise limping to 110 for nine chasing a target of 151. That mark was set up by Ryan Rickelton’s fourth 20-over half-century after he top-scored with 51 (41 balls, 7 fours) for the home side.

For the Lions, victory lifted them into the top two with the Cape Cobras. After beating the Dolphins in Durban during the week, Enoch Nkwe’s side did not look very good initially after losing two key wickets in the first four overs – Reeza Hendricks (0) and Rassie van der Dussen (7) dismissed with only 17 on the board.

Dwaine Pretorius then provided a spark his team desperately craved with a timely 36 not out off 22 balls that lifted the home team to 150 for seven. Teenager Coetzee finished with a solid return of two for 30 in four overs, the best for his team. After the early loss of Patrick Kruger (3) to Fortuin, top-scorer Raynard van Tonder (32) and Andries Gous (24) put together 46 for the second wicket that kept the Knights on course for victory.

Grant Mokena (22) did his best to try and keep up with the rate, but Fortuin and then Malusi Siboto’s three for 11 in three overs later on rocked the visiting side and sealed a second successive win for the home side.
