Morkel and De Villiers power Titans to victory over Lions

AB de Villiers blasted a 19-ball unbeaten fifty as the former South Africa skipper helped his team Multiply Titans to a big win over Highveld Lions in the Ram Slam Twenty20 competition

The Dolphins broke the Titans' record for the highest score in the competition's history as they beat the Cobras by 15 runs in the early game, but the home side still put themselves at the top of the log after the first round as they claimed the bonus point in beating the Lions by eight wickets. Is Titans the best team on paper?, well sure yes, with the likes of AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock, Farhaan Behardien, Tabraiz Shamsi, Aiden Markram, Dean Elgar, Albie Morkel and David Wiese in the squad and T20 franchise will fear the look of this line up.

Watch highlights of the match in the video at the top of the page as De Villers (50 off 19 balls) brought up the Titans' victory - and his unbeaten half-century - by hitting global team-mate Kagiso Rabada into the stands for back-to-back sixes.

That brought Morkel (41 off 16 balls) to the crease, and alongside De Villers, the pair powered the visitors to a comfortable victory with 22 balls to spare.

Morkel began by claiming the key wicket of Rassie van der Dussen (0), who edged the second ball of the match down the leg side into the gloves of De Kock.

Cases for early hearing can only be listed before Chief Justice
Forum shopping is a practice adopted by litigants to get their cases heard by a particular court for a favorable judgement. He termed the Constitution Bench order, which in effect nullified Justice Chelameswar's order, as "totally illegal".

Only Reeza Hendricks managed a contribution note after he made an unbeaten 67 (42 balls, 8 fours, 2 sixes) - the 14th T20 50 of his career. But rain stopped play when Lions were 127 for the loss of six wickets in 15 overs and no further play was possible in their innings.

Lions' skipper Aaron Phangiso chose to bat first after winning the toss at SuperSport Park in Centurion but Albie Morkel's twin strike in the first over pegged them back. His 19-ball-50 saw him hit three fours and five sixes.

Morkel produced another brilliant moment two balls later when he removed Mangaliso Mosehle whose effort was taken by De Villiers at extra cover and Marques Ackerman followed when he was caught by Malusi Siboto from the bowling of Morkel.
