    Cameron Delport Just why.

    Also think it is time to leave de Zorzi out because he isn't ready but they can't fit 3 'black seamers' in. It is also crazy Moonsamy has to miss out also.

    TITNS 78/3 (15.5 ov, AB de Villiers 26*, F Behardien 4*, A Gqamane 1/25) | Live Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    I do think that if Titans get to play this team they should be handicapped 100 runs....

    Just watched a bit of this as went out. Markram got a stinker. Half-way down and didn't get higher than ankle height. Typical Benoni. No offence Marius but the worst out ground in the country Pity because it would have been nice for Markram to bat with the master AB.

    Morris and Ngidi extracted nice movement early on. I actually think the quality of fast-bowling hasn't been to great in the MOC. I know it is late in the season and pitches are flat but it hasn't been great. Huge disappointment that Dupavillon has had to miss a whole season with various odd injuries. I am hoping he bounces back and carries on getting 5-fors for Dolphins like he started doing at 19/20.

    Rassie van der Dussen just scored 102 but at a SR of 73 chasing 311 - LIONS 247/5 (45.2 ov, D Pretorius 88*, PWA Mulder 1*, D du Preez 2/51) | Live Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Is that good enough ? A 100 sounds good but in context as a supposed senior player with no more McKenzie, Cook, Petersen etc in the batting line-up I'm not so sure.

    A couple seasons back I couldnt have seen him scoring hundreds. Certainly has improved loads. Would love him to get an extra yard of pace but past injuries probably wont let us see that.

    19 yo Mulder with 30 off 15 in a testing situation. What a talent.

    Yeah Pretorius looked so much better with the bat in NZ than I'd remembered from when I saw him early in his career. He didn't really score heaps but he really looked like a genuine batsman out there.

    Definitely was only T20 material before but was even using soft hands and deflecting the ball behind square in his 50 v NZL. You can't ask for more than that with players on the domestic scene. That they just keep improving.

    Last round-robin fixtures tomorrow in MODC and all to play for bar the Lions and Cobras.

    Titans (28)
    Dolphins (24)
    Knights (23)
    Warriors (21)
    Lions (13)
    Cobras (12)

    Dolphins v Knights at Kingsmead (Televised)
    Titans v Cobras at Centurion
    Warriors v Lions at St George's

    *Basically the Titans win they secure a home Final.
    **If the Warriors win they will secure the away play-off because Dolphins play Knights and one will most probably lose.

    DOLPHINS squad

    Van Jaarsveld, van Wyk (wk), Delport, Erwee, Zondo, Makhanya, Muthusamy
    Phehlukwayo, Frylinck, Savage
    Tahir, Subrayen, Nipper
    Engelbrecht, Shezi


    KNIGHTS squad

    Second (wk), Petersen, Bodibe, Miller, van Biljon, Mnyanda, du Plooy, Rosier
    Swanepoel
    de Lange, du Preez, van Schalkwyk, Budaza, Mofokeng (Olivier joining 50/50)

    TITANS

    Markram, Davids, Kuhn (wk), de Villiers, Behardien, Vandiar
    A.Morkel, Wiese
    Shamsi, von Berg
    Morris, Ngidi, Dala, Siboto

    COBRAS

    Puttick, Agathagelou, Khomari, Hamza, Vilas (wk), Smith, Mgijima
    Galiem
    Leie, N.Botha
    Paterson, Williams, Qwabe

    No Warriors and Lions squads out but can't imagine any major changes there.

    A bit of the 3-day leading run-scorers and leading wicket-takers. Provincial cricket becoming more important as clearly players playing here could be playing franchise cricket.

    Cricket Records | Records | Sunfoil 3-Day Cup, 2016/17 | Most runs | ESPN Cricinfo

    Experienced guys like P. Malan, Conway, Agathagelou, P.Botha, Pillay, A.Malan, Y.Cook, Thomson, Lubbe, Cloete, E.Moore, Swanepoel on the list who are franchise-provincial cusp players.

    Youth that stands-out are Valli, J.Malan, Rickelton, Moonsamy, Verreynne, Ackerman, du Plooy

    Cricket Records | Records | Sunfoil 3-Day Cup, 2016/17 | Most wickets | ESPN Cricinfo

    Migael Pretorius stands out here for me. Galiem also being an all-rounder but looks like step up to franchise cricket will be a bit tougher for his bowling rather than his batting.

    This play-off between warriors and knights is going to be abandoned.... atrocious wicket I can`t see them playing on.
