Southern Rocks 256 for 6 (Raza 77, Tikolo 56*) beat Mashonaland Eagles 252 for 7 (Lamb 96, Mahlunge 47, Tikolo 2-46) by four wickets

Sikandar Raza and Steve Tikolo hit half-centuries to steer Southern Rocks to a four-wicket victory over Mashonaland Eagles in the Metbank One-Day Competition, chasing down their target of 253 with 11 balls to spare in the 40-over match.

Pakistan-born Raza laid the foundation for the chase after his partner Steve Marillier was bowled by fast-bowler Douglas Hondo off the first ball of the innings. Raza hit eight fours and a six in his 77, which came off 61 deliveries. It was his maiden List A half-century.

Former Kenya captain Tikolo guided his side home in what could have become a tense chase after six wickets had fallen with 47 runs still needed from 32 deliveries. Tikolo and Tendai Chisoro ensured there were no further hiccups with an unbroken 50-run stand that came off just 3.3 overs.

Greg Lamb had earlier played an aggressive knock of 96 off 78 deliveries to lift the Eagles from 103 for 5 to 252 for 7. Lamb added 116 runs for the sixth wicket with Tarisai Mahlunge who made 47 off 49. Tikolo was the best bowler for the Rocks, taking 2 for 46 in eight overs.

The Rocks earned four points for their victory.
