Lions roar to success

Lions 134 for 4 (van Jaarsveld 64) beat Western Province Boland 129 (Duminy 43, Terbrugge 4-20) by six wickets

Lions eased to a six-wicket victory against Western Province Boland in a low-scoring PRO20 Series match at the Wanderers in Johannesburg. Western Province got off to a brisk start after choosing to bat, scoring 28 off the first three overs.

But three wickets then tumbled before another run was added to put them on the back foot as David Terbrugge got the ball moving around. They recovered, though, JP Duminy (43) and Thami Tsolekile (35) bringing them back into the game with a stand of 62 - then the match swung again, as they lost their final seven wickets for 39 runs. Terbrugge finished off the innings with two further wickets to end with 4 for 20 in his four overs.

With a moderate target, the Lions paced themselves well to record the win in the 19th over. Man of the match, Vaughn van Jaarsveld 64 off 49 balls with five boundaries and a six. Neil McKenzie finished the game off, hitting a four and a six off the final two balls to give Lions the five points.

The match between the Warriors and the Titans was declared a no-result without a ball being bowled at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.
