The Dolphins fast bowler, the leading wicket-taker in domestic first-class cricket, found himself in the team when all-rounder Jacques Kallis suffered a calf injury the day before the match. Imran Farhat, who made the top score of 30 in the first innings, did not open the batting in the second innings after being struck on the hand in the first innings.
