The Bizhub Highveld Lions won the toss and elected to field against the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras in the Sunfoil Series match taking place at Sahara Park Newlands in Cape Town.
The Cape Cobras went in to bat and soon saw themselves struggling as they lost their first wicket on only the second ball of the day. First to fall was Omphile Ramela to the bowling of Lonwabo Tsotsobe. As if losing the one wicket wasn’t enough, the Cape Cobras soon lost two more and saw the team in trouble at 17 for 3.
Justin Ontong and Yaseen Vallie started rebuilding the Cape Cobras’ innings and took the team to 75 for 3. Ontong went into the lunch break with his score on 46* and Vallie on 17*.
