A comprehensive wrap of all the collated fixtures, scores and reports from the CSA 4-Day Domestic Series:

Division 1

Lions v Dolphins - SCORECARD

Marques Ackerman's century blasted the Dolphins to a maiden victory of the campaign over the previously unbeaten Lions at Kingsmead on Sunday.

Ackerman, the Dolphins captain, struck 21 fours on his way to an unbeaten 139 off 127 balls as the home side claimed a convincing eight-wicket triumph after being handed 257 runs as the target for victory during the fourth and final day after the Lions declared their second innings on 166/6.

Despite Dominic Hendricks' efforts of 72 off 164 balls (11 fours) for the visitors, helping them set a daunting target, the Dolphins responded with a dominant 260/2 to seal the result, with Grant Roelofsen (54 off 70; 9 fours) and Khaya Zondo (53 off 90 balls; 6 fours) also chipping in.

Knights v Western Province - SCORECARD

Due to persistent rain, there was no play possible for the second consecutive day at the Mangaung Oval between the Knights and the Western Province with the match ending as a draw.

North West v Titans - SCORECARD

Heinrich Klaasen followed up a first innings century with an unbeaten fifty to help the Titans seal an emphatic eight-wicket victory over the North West Dragons in Potchefstroom on Saturday.

The wicket-keeper batter smashed an 82-ball 71* (9 fours, 1 six) in a 121-run partnership with Grant Mokoena, who finished on 50* (87 balls; 3 fours, 3 sixes), to help his side stroll to their victory after the away side dismissed the Dragons for 231 in their second innings to leave them needing 132 runs to win .

The Dragons' second innings was inspired by Heino Kuhn’s 26th career hundred in First Class cricket, while Lizaad Williams (3 / 16) was the pick of the bowler with an impressive return to limit the hosts.

Warriors v Rocks - SCORECARD

At St George's Park in Gqeberha, the Warriors resumed at the crease to add 59 runs to their overnight score, with Tristan Stubbs (52 off 115; 7 fours) notching up an important half-century, before his side were bowled out for 356 to set the Rocks a target of 342 to win.

With the stage set for an exciting final day’s play, fast bowler Dane Paterson grabbed the headlines to claim seven scalps for just 25 runs, including four of the top five Rocks batters, to help leave them 93/7 while matching his best wicket-tally in an innings as the visiting side were removed for 174.

Pieter Malan top-scored with 41 for the Rocks but his side fell 168 runs short of the target to give the Warriors a stunning victory.

Division 2

KwaZulu-Natal Inland v South Western Districts - SCORECARD

Easterns v Northern Cape - SCORECARD
