Perth (Australia): South Africa's KwaZulu Natal coasted to victory by six wickets over India's Mumbai in a Champions Cup one-day competition clash at the WACA Ground here on Sunday. The South Africans made an untroubled 190 for four in 45 overs after Mumbai were all out for 186 in 47.3 overs. KwaZulu Natal now has two wins from three matches in the four-nation contest and has strong prospects of reaching Wednesday's final of the inaugural event. The South Africans skidded to 90 for four in their chase before fifth-wicket pair Mark Bruyns and Wade Wingfield both hit unbeaten half-centuries in a stand of 100 to clinch the win with five overs to spare. Bruyns, at number four, gathered 54 from 75 balls, while number six Wingfield collected 51 from 82. Each hit five fours, with Wingfield belting a six as well. Opener Doug Watson stroked a handy 30 from 43 deliveries for the winners. Mumbai's innings developed little momentum as only opener Robin Morris (30 from 39 balls), number four Jatin Paranjpe (34 from 55 ) and number eight Paras Mhambrey (31 from 45) threatened to assert but fell before crafting major scores. Jon Kent starred with the ball for the South Africans, capturing 3 for 25 from 8.3 overs, with Andrew Tweedie (2 for 53 from nine overs) and captain Dale Benkenstein (2 for 27 from five overs) weighing in with useful efforts. Mumbai will be in action again on Monday, clashing with New Zealand's Shell Cup holder, Central Districts, at the same venue. Copyright AFP 2000AFP
