An extraordinary six-wicket haul from Wayne Parnell gave Warriors a winning start to the Momentum One-day Cup with an 11-run win over Knights at Kimberley.

Parnell ran through the middle order for his best List A haul and took the wickets of Pite van Biljon and Quinton Friend, who both threatened to rally Knights to their target of 243. But they were bowled out with more than four overs remaining.

Parnell began with a wicket in his third over but it was his second spell that did the damage with five wickets in six overs. His side needed wickets because they were leaking runs at a healthy rate and van Biljon's 65-ball fifty led the chase. But when he was seventh out to Parnell, Knights were running out of room. Friend revitalised the chase with 35 in 30 balls but Parnell again removed the danger and Andrew Birch claimed the final wicket.

Having been put in to bat, Colin Ingram played the strongest hand in Warriors' solid total. He struck seven fours and a six and added 75 for the third wicket with Ryan Bailey. Useful cameos from Christiaan Jonker and Simon Harmer boosted their total, which Parnell ensured was healthy enough.

Miss the 40 or 45 over game - the middle 15 overs of the 50 over game are predictable and dull.
