Proteas Test opener Elgar helps the Tshwane Spartans to a four wickets win over the Jozi Stars

Proteas Test opener Dean Elgar displayed his limited overs credentials by helping the Tshwane Spartans to a four wickets win over the Jozi Stars in their Mzansi Super League (MSL) encounter at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday afternoon.

Elgar‚ who has only played in eight ODIs and is yet to feature in an international T20 match for the Proteas‚ scored an elegant knock of 79 off 52 which included five boundaries and four maximums for the Spartans.

Largely as a result of his performance‚ the Spartans ended on 188/6 in chase of 186/5 that was put up by Stars after they lost the toss and were inserted to bat first on the Centurion wicket that had something for the bowlers and batsmen.

In the process Elgar reached his highest T20 score and the Spartans breathed new life into their campaign with their second win after five matches and they have now moved up to third on the standings.
