A brisk hundred from Blake Snijman helped Gauteng take charge of their match against Easterns on the second day at Benoni. Starting the day on 4 without loss, their top three fell to leave them stumbling on 37 for 3. But Diaan van Wyk (63) joined Snijman and together the pair put on 132 for the fifth wicket. Easterns struck back by dismissing both players, as Gauteng ended on 267 for 7 and hold a lead of 132.
The match was abandoned at Paarl between Boland and KwaZulu-Natal due to cracks in the pitch. Martin Bekker and Tahir Essack both brought up their fifties for KwaZulu-Natal before falling in quick succession. Robert Frylinck struck a run-a-ball fifty and remained unbeaten when the umpires called the match off at lunch.
Why the Indian opener would be well advised to shelve the hook and pull in Australia
