Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Lions prevailed over Titans, scoring a six-wicket win in their Sunfoil Series match in Benoni. Chasing 181 runs for victory, Lions, who began at an overnight score of 69 for 0, wrapped up proceedings in the first session of play, with a day to spare. The win puts Lions at the top of the points table in the series.

Much of the credit for this win rests with fast bowler Hardus Viljoen and batsman Neil McKenzie. Viljoen's finished the match with figures of 9 for 81, including a six-wicket haul in the second innings that was instrumental in dismissing Titans for 187.

McKenzie's knock of 70 in the first innings helped Lions gain a slender seven run-lead as they scored 202 in response to Titans' innings of 195. McKenzie, who has played 58 Tests and 64 ODIs for South Africa, then put on 56 runs for the third wicket with Temba Bavuma to seal the match for Lions.
