Puttick stars in thumping Cobras win

The crowd at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium did not have a home team to support in the first part of the Saturday double-header but those who bothered to show up certainly got their money's worth

Fabulous innings from Puttick and a breezy knock from Ontong set up this win. Clinical finish.

Cumming: It was disappointing. Half-time we were still confident but those runs outs ... puttick played fantastically well. On Monday it's do or die. The guys are excited and want to hang around a little bit longer. We want to go through to the next round."

Andrew Puttick is the Man of the Match : "What a great feeling. I am happy with the way the boys bowled. to get a hundred tops it. Couple of weeks back I couldn't even imagine this as I wasn't coming here for this tournament. It's great to have all the support back home. (They got a call from Graeme Smith after they won the first game the other night). The boys were outstanding tonight; our fielding improved from the shaky effort the other night."

That's it from us. Join us in about 20 minutes for the next game.
