South Africa blast their way to victory
South Africa 266 for 5 (Jack 109, Kirsten 103) beat Bermuda 169 for 9 by 97 runs
South Africa's batting has been the key to their success, and Kirsten and former Transvaal fast bowler Steven Jack finished the tournament with 461 runs between them. Kirsten followed his 134 in the semi-final with 103 this time, while Jack smashed 109. Both reached their hundreds in under 50 balls. Jack, who played his two Tests for South Africa as a bowler, raced to his century in 40 balls, including four fours and ten sixes.
The Bermuda bowlers all came in for some stick, with Kevin Hurdle being slammed for 71 from his four overs.
Bermuda never seemed interested in chasing a daunting ask of more than 13 an over, but they batted well and the spirits of a lively capacity crowd were not dampened.
"I think the bowlers have learned a hard lesson tonight," Gus Logie, Bermuda's coach, admitted. "We talked a lot beforehand about how we were going to have to bowl against them but we just did not put those plans into practice and we got punished for it."
