Paarl Rocks 144/5 (du Plessis 54, van Jaarsveld 32, Steyn 2-21) beat Cape Town Blitz 140 (de Kock 31, Fortuin 4-15, Paterson 3-23) by 5 wickets
Bjorn Fortuin's four-wicket haul and Faf du Plessis' half-century helped Paarl Rocks register their first win of the Mzansi Super League. Their victory also halted Cape Town Blitz's unbeaten streak of four matches, though Blitz still hold the pole position with 18 points.
Batting first, Blitz made a breezy start courtesy Quinton de Kock's 16-ball 31. But left-arm spinner Fortuin eked out the top four batsmen in quick succession and Blitz could never recover after that. Despite some sloppy ground fielding, they managed just 57 from the last ten overs and were bowled out for 140.
Du Plessis then steered the Rocks through their chase with a 39-ball 54. He received good support from Vaughn van Jaarsveld and Mangaliso Mosehle as the Rocks notched up the winning runs in 18.5 overs, with five wickets in hand.
