A good Day 1 for Western Province and the Stoke contingent had a big say.
Hoppy bagged 4 for 65 from 17 overs, (Shawn 6-3-21-0), to restrict Durbanville to 196 for 9 in their allotted 60 first innings overs.
In reply, WPCC were going well at 78 for 1, but Shawn found himself at the crease with the scoreboard showing 101 for 6. A century stand and an unbeaten 54 followed, though, to secure the first innings points and a lead of 21 at the end of Day 1.
