Knights quick, Marchant de Lange, aims to impress this domestic season and proved it by taking 3-17 in their T20 clash against the Cobras.
After the Knights posted a total of 183 all out they knew they had to turn it up if their bowlers aimed to dismiss an experienced Cobras side.
De Lange started off proceedings well, dismissing Cebo Tshiki for a duck on the first ball of his first over. Richard Levi (25 off 16), who was dropped off the bowling of De Lange just a few balls later, started to become destructive, hitting four fours and one six, until a beautifully disguised slower delivery fooled him, taking out his middle stump.
That delivery changed the whole complex of the game as Levi was looking dangerous and had the potential to take the chase away from the Knights.
Although the 25-year-old had the final say by dismissing Tshepo Moreki (0) at the death to claim a 38-run victory for his side, it was his delivery to Levi which stood out.
To see De Lange’s impressive dismissal of Levi, go to 6.12.
