Ryan Rickelton scored 99 off 96 balls as the Central Gauteng Lions beat the Boland Rocks by 111 runs at the Wanderers on Sunday.

He received good support from Reeza Hendricks, who scored 44 off 45 balls, before Evan Jones hit 48* off 27 to help get the Lions to 293-9 in their 50 overs.
The Rocks were bowled out for 182 in 31.4 overs. Captain Shaun von Berg top-scored with an unbeaten 47 off 44 balls, while Lions pace bowler Malusi Siboto took 4-48 in 9.4 overs.
At Newlands, Tony de Zorzi maintained his outstanding batting form with 83* off 92 balls as Western Province beat the Northerns Titans by seven wickets with 18.2 overs to spare.
