Arnie Wright's superb form on the Grasshoppers tour of South Africa continued on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Ulster side from slipping to a four-wicket loss against Durbanville.

Wright came to the middle with his side in trouble at 28 for 4, but taking inspiration from his idol Alan Waite, he 'dug in' and together with Ally Shields set about repairing the precarious situation.

The pair shared a fifth wicket stand of 90, with Wright top-scoring with 58 from 99 balls, while Shields made 41.

Jack Beattie made a quickfire 28 to help them reach 167 for 9 in their 40 overs.

The hosts were always in control of the chase thanks to an unbeaten 62 from Ernie Kotzee as they reached 98 for 1.

Wright showed his all-round capabilities by grabbing four wickets for 24, but the result was never really in doubt.

Deserved drink for Wright

The tourists will reflect on no fewer than five missed catches which proved the difference between the sides.
