Perhaps the possibility of Provinces reaching the final has caught their attention - and a win here would make that job much easier. Good start by the bowlers - although I see Cremer's just gone for 8 off his first over...

Welcome! :) We haven't been here too long - glad you found us, though!

Koortzen and Bossenger are digging in quite well, unfortunately, and Cremer looks to be having a rare off-day (5-0-31-0). Need to get a breakthrough as soon after lunch as possible...

...and that's their 100-partnership. Provinces losing their way after a good start, here...

Rainsford to break them open IMO.

Slightly random, but I thought I'd commend you on your excellent username. Excellent stuff.

Duffin kept his spot. I'm shocked.

Well, it looks like GriqW are going to make at least 400, let's hope our batting holds up. Funnily, I've got more hope in the performances of Chakabva and Cremer with the bat than Duffin, Mawoyo, Kasteni and Mujuru combined.

3/172

Duffin's form is quite obviously shocking of late (how long has it been since he even got off the mark?!?) but I'm backing him to do well in this game. Place in the team under pressure, presumably good batting conditions chasing what will likely be a big first innings score - all tailor-made for a Duffin special of attrition, mental strength and technical bliss.

Cremer got a wicket and broke the partnership. He was getting a bit of a hammering earlier, now his economy is looking better (3.9).
