Levi fires Cobras to victory

Richard Levi smashed 54 off 27 balls to lead Cape Cobras to a seven-wicket victory in a rain-shortened, ten-over match against Dolphins in Durban. Levi helped Cobras overhaul the target of 85 with four balls to spare.

The Cobras attack had kept Dolphins to 84 for 8 after they chose to bowl. Jonathan Vandiar and Vaughn van Jaarsveld were the only Dolphins batsmen to make double-digit scores. George Linde took 3 for 15 for Cobras, while Ferisco Adams claimed 2 for 19.

Henry Davids' 75 off 42 balls was the starring performance in Titans' 27-run, D/L victory against Lions in Benoni. Titans were steaming along at 131 for 4 in 13.5 overs when rain stopped play and forced the game to be curtailed to 16 overs a side. Though Davids fell soon after the resumption, Titans finished on 161 for 6 and the target was scaled up to 168.

Ethy Mbhalati hurt the Lions chase by dismissing Alviro Petersen and Chris Gayle in his first two overs, reducing them to 16 for 2. Jean Symes made an unbeaten 57 but Lions finished on 140 for 5 in 16 overs.

There was a full game in East London, where Warriors cruised to an eight-wicket win against Knights with three balls to spare. The Warriors attack restricted Knights to 146 despite taking only four wickets, with Simon Harmer, JJ Smuts and Basheeru-Dean Walters conceding six or fewer runs per over in four-over spells.

Smuts powered the Warriors chase of 147, making an unbeaten 73 off 56 balls to secure victory. He was supported by Colin Ingram, who made 40, and Christiaan Jonker, who was not out on 22.
