FS won the toss and sent the visitors in to bat first.
WP lost Matthew Kleinveldt (1) in the second over of the match to fast bowler Gino Vries.
Pieter Malan and Aviwe Mgijima swiftly recovered WP’s innings with a 50-run second wicket partnership before Mgijima was eventually caught behind for 23 off Romano Terblanche.
Malan (82*) who’s playing his 100th first class match and Hamza continued where Mgijima left off and together they constructed a 183-run third wicket partnership. It was off-breaker, Tshepo Ntuli who gave FS the much needed breakthrough when he dismissed Hamza for 118.
At close of play WP are 238 for 3 in 67 overs.
