The skipper added 95 more runs to his overnight score to finish unbeaten with 177 runs behind his name. He and Sybrand Engelbrecht added 149 more runs to Western Province’s overnight score to see the team declare on 387 for three in 107 overs in the first innings.
Fast bowler, Lizaad Williams on the other hand showed no mercy for the FS batsmen. The entire top five batsmen succumbed to his incredible bowling. Spinner George Linde and medium pacer Jason Smith took one apiece to reduce the hosts to 221 for seven at close of play.
Although FS started their innings on a positive note with a 72-run opening stand between Thabo Masheshemane and Vukozi Bamuza, the team could not consolidate and lacked partnerships.
FS still trail by 166 runs with three wickets remaining in the first innings.
