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

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.

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

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.
