Morris leads Lions attack

2014-12-22 00:00

CHRIS Morris’s destruction of the Nashua Cape Cobras’ top order, with three wickets in 10 balls, was the catalyst for the bizhub Highveld Lions’ emphatic 213-run victory at Newlands yesterday.

Only George Linde, with 51 off 63 balls, offered any real resistance to the ferocious Lions attack, until he too was broken by Morris, the last man out. Morris ended the day with four for 35 in 10.2 overs. The Cobras line-up had been crushed in just 38.2 overs.

Morris accounted for Andrew Puttick (3), Yaseen Vallie (1) and Justin Ontong, controversially caught behind off a looping catch as he attempted to pull, when on six.

The Lions come away with 17,3 points and a record of two wins and one defeat in the series, putting them at the top of the log, just 1,44 points ahead of the Titans after their win in Bloemfontein. The Cape Cobras have 6,12 from their first match of the series.
