Rikki Wessels anchored the tail as Nottinghamshire powered their way to 391-6 against Somerset in the English County Championship on Sunday.
He came to the crease after the top order had established a solid platform at 266-3, with former Zimbabwe captain Brendon Taylor making a great 152 off 200 balls and the Johannesburg-born England player Michael Lumb contributing 73. Taylor was one of four victims for Alfonso Thomas, who ended with 4-62 off 20 overs.
Wessels, son of former Proteas captain Kepler, ended the day on 59 off 104 balls.
Tim Groenewald was taken for 84 runs off 18 overs and Johann Myburgh for 34 off 11.
Bad light ended play early at Manchester just as Lancashire were about to reply to Leicestershire’s dismal offering of 207.
The mainstay of that innings was the 54 off 66 balls from Andrea Agathangelou, a true son of Rustenburg who fought a good fight for North West.
Agathangelou takes his nationality from his Cypriot father but owes his cricketing heritage to his mother’s land. He has an impressive record in South African provincial cricket. In 24 first-class matches for North West, he has scored more than 1,800 runs at 39.15, including four centuries and a top score of 158.
He joined Lancashire on a scholarship in 2010 as a 20-year-old all-rounder.
Jacques Rudolph‘s Glamorgan continued their winnings ways in T20, when they beat Somerset by two runs on the D/L calculation after rain disrupted the match on Saturday.
Somerset struggled to 159-5 in their 20 overs, hampered by Wayne Parnell removing their openers with just 15 runs on the board, and Craig Meschede added another to leave Somerset at 26-3. After the rain, Glamorgan needed 42 off six overs, to which Mesched contributed 18 off eight balls with Rudolph (10) and Colin Ingram (12) seeing them home.
At Headingley on Sunday, Richard Levi led the way with a quickfire 35 off 21 balls, with four fours and two sixes to give Northants an eight-wicket win over Yorkshire.
They had been given a target of 83 from 12 overs after rain had played its miserable part, but given the start they had from Levi, they made it with 26 balls to spare.
Rory Kleinveldt had earlier bowled well to take the valuable wicket of big-hitting Glen Maxwell and concede just eight runs from his two allocated overs, restricting Yorkshire to 82-7.
