Record-breaking De Zorzi’s 304 leads Six Gun Grill WP to big win over Knights

Six Gun Grill Western Province and Dafabet Warriors secured comfortable wins in the Cricket South Africa (CSA) 4-Day Series on Saturday.

A triple century from Tony de Zorzi (304* off 381), the highest ever individual score in the history of the ground, and a ton from Yaseen Vallie saw Western Province claim an innings and 155-run victory against the ITEC Knights.

Knights’ efforts from Raynard van Tonder (117 off 222), and Pite van Biljon (71 off 142) proved not enough as the visitors were bowled out for 309 runs, following 111 runs from their first innings.

George Linde and Dane Paterson claimed three wickets each to help the Cape Town-based side secure another victory at home.

Meanwhile in Gqeberha, Warriors claimed a 239-run victory against North West Dragons, to make it three wins from three matches.
