Zondo, van Wyk lead Heat to second win of the tournament
Half-centuries by Morne van Wyk and Khaya Zondo helped the Durban Heat their second Mzansi Super League contest after they stunned the Cape Town Blitz by six wickets.
Veteran Van Wyk struck a solid 56 at the top of the order with Zondo clubbing a crisp 67 off 42 balls as the bottom-placed visitors eased to a 162-run victory target with three balls to spare.
It was only a second win of the campaign for them. Though, they remained rooted at the end of the points table.
The Proteas opening batsman led the way for his side after a top-order collapse left them on 28 for three in the seventh over.
Asif Ali (18), Farhaan Behardien (17) and Mohammad Nawaz (23) did offer some support, with the Blitz ending on 161 for six.
Sarel Erwee and Hashim Amla were the early wickets to fall for the Heat, both to Nawaz (2/21), which left them on 39 for two.
But Van Wyk and Zondo combined nicely for a 79-run third wicket stand that took them to 118 for two, with David Miller unbeaten on 16 helping them get over the line.
