ESPNcricinfo staff

Knights 133 for 1 (Elgar 61*, Rossouw 61*) beat Dolphins 131 for 5 (Zondo 43, van der Wath 2-29) by nine wickets

Rapid half-centuries by Rilee Rossouw and Dean Elgar helped Knights seal a bonus-point win against Dolphins in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge. Chasing a modest target of 132, Knights lost Loots Bosman in the first over, but Rossouw and Elgar put up an unbeaten 127-run stand and overhauled the target in the 16th over. Both batsmen stayed unbeaten on 61.

Dolphins chose to bat first and scored 46 for the first wicket, but economical spells by Nicky Boje and Malusi Siboto kept the scoring in check. Khayelihle Zondo and Vaughn van Jaarsveld were the only two batsmen to get past 30 as the team was restricted to 131. Johan van der Wath picked up two wickets for 29.

It was Dolphins fourth loss in the competition.

    time for clueless Klusener to go...that batting order and poorly motivated players look terminal...the dolphins will likely lose all their games this season...on the upside...has riley roussouw finally matured...was a staggeringly good innings!

    And the Dolphins lost again… Why do they persist with pathetic Imran Khan? He didn't even bat - why do they pick him? There are so many other, more talented batsmen in the country. They'll keep losing if they keep making these crazy selections.
