Cricket news - Markram, Behardien notch up world record stand to beat Cobras

Markram scored a 169 before picking up two wickets in an all-round show.

Cape Cobras vs Titans

Aiden Markram and Farhaan Behardien notched a world record stand of 272 runs - the highest for the sixth wicket in List A cricket against Cape Cobras on Friday (March 1) at Newlands in their Momentum One Day Cup 2019 clash. While Behardien was unbeaten on 111 off 100 balls, Markram not just belted a 129-ball 169, but also capped it off with two wickets, returning 2-24 in five overs as the Titans beat the Cobras by 83 runs.

Titans amassed 320 in their fifty over on the back of their centurion pair, before bowling out the opposition for just 237 in 40.5 overs in an all-round effort. Opting to bowl, Cobras had made early inroads and had Titans reduced to 31 for 5, thanks to Rory Kleinveldt and Akhona Mnyaka before the pair of Markram and Behardien turned the game on its head. Markram struck seven sixes and 15 fours in his knock, while Behardien was happy to play second fiddle striking eight fours and four sixes en route his century.

In reply, Janneman Malan (71) and David Bedingham (50) converted their starts, but the rest of the line-up couldn't stand up to the challenge as the Cobras were handed their third loss of the tournament.

Brief scores: Titans 320/6 in 50 overs (Aiden Markram 169, Farhaan Behardien 111*; Rory Kleinveldt 3-36, Akhona Mnyaka 3-57) beat Cape Cobras 237 in 40.5 overs (Janneman Malan 71, David Bedingham 50; Gregory Mahlokwana 2-56, Junior Dala 2-42, Aiden Markram 2-24) by 83 runs.

Warriors vs Lions

Sinethemba Qeshile's century starred in the Warriors' seven-run win over Lions at Buffale Park in East London after rain intervened. The clash was reduced to a 41-over-a-side affair after rain came pouring down post the first innings in which the Warriors had scored 309/9 in their 50 overs on the back of Qeshile's unbeaten 121, that came off just 105 balls. Colin Ackermann chipped in with a handy 78, but no other batsman got a substantial score other than that.

In reply, Dominic Hendricks fought a lone battle with an unbeaten 116 off 103 balls to keep his side in the hunt. Hendricks was just on 20 when rain stopped play with the Lions on 101/3. The equation after resumption had come down to them requiring 95 in 10 overs. They eventually fell short by 7 runs by the Duckworth-Lewis method, finishing their quota of 41 overs on 276/9, keeping intact Warriors' unbeaten run in five games so far in the tournament.

Brief scores: Warriors 309/9 in 50 overs (Sinethemba Qeshile 121*; Aaron Phangiso 3-48) beat Lions 276/9 in 41 overs (Dominic Hendricks 116*; Andrew Birch 3-50, JJ Smuts 3-63) by seven runs by D/L method.
