While Cape Town Blitz ended their 3-match losing streak, the Spartans suffered their first loss of the season. The MSL action resumes on Tuesday. Until then, goodbye. Quinton de Kock | Cape Town Blitz captain: I was pretty confident. AB and van Biljon grew a big partnership. Eventually, we got AB and nerves calmed down. It was a pretty good wicket. There were runs up for grabs. It was a tough competition between bat and ball. Our confidence grew quite big, we need to focus on our next game. Dale Steyn | Player of the Match: It's nice to be playing. I am having fun and enjoying my cricket, shows in my performance. He's (AB de Villiers) the best in the world. I don't think I got him out in 20 years (chuckles). It's been a long time. It's always fun and challenging playing against him. Magala has been a find for us. He bowls the 18th and 20th for us and he doesn't moan. He's fantastic. The crowd has been great. We have one more match here, looking forward to it. I love playing at Newlands.  Heinrich Klaasen | Tshwane Spartans captain: I don't think that the toss was that bad. It was always going to be difficult after losing three quick wickets. Kudos to them, they bowled well. Dale bowled extremely well, he's a match-winner. That (Pite van Biljon's knock) got us to a close score. He's in very good nick and he's training hard as well. 17:27 Local Time, 15:27 GMT, 20:57 IST: The Blitz end their 3-match losing streak. Defending a par score, they nipped out Spartans' top three cheaply - all of them out for single digit scores. AB de Villiers and Klaasen started to rebuild the innings, but the latter fell to Livingstone. At 48/4, Tshwane were in all sorts of trouble. That's when Petrus van Biljon decided to counterattack. He was unflustered even after seeing AB perishing to Steyn. He kept going after the Cape Town bowlers and brought the equation down to '32 needed off the last two overs'. Wahab Riaz, however, showed no signs of nerves bowling the penultimate over. Yes he was denied a wicket as he had overstepped, but despite that, he bowled a fantastic over which progressed as follows: 0 1B 1 Nb 1 0 W. By dismissing van Biljon, the Pakistani virtually killed the match in the 19th over. Don't forget Dale Steyn's performance. He bowled three overs in the powerplay and picked two wickets before coming back and scalping his pal de Villiers. The veteran's bowling figures say it all: 4-0-10-3. Hang around for the presentations. 19.6 Magala to Morne Morkel, 1 run, 131.6kph, length ball on the pads, flicked away to deep backward square leg. Cape Town Blitz win by 15 runs 19.5 Magala to van der Merwe, 1 run, slower ball from a back of a length, van der Merwe pulls it to long-on 19.4 Magala to Morne Morkel, 1 run, 141.5kph, back of a length delivery, punched to extra cover 19.3 Magala to van der Merwe, 1 run, short ball, leg-stump line, pulled to fine leg Morne Morkel, left handed bat, comes to the crease 19.2 Magala to Tom Curran, out Caught by Livingstone!! Holed out. Off-speed length ball at 119.4kph, Tom Curran heaves across the line, doesn't get the required timing and Livingstone runs across at deep mid-wicket to complete the catch.

This is just incredible bowling. The umpires go upstairs. Fair ball.
