Scorecard

Unbeaten innings from Roelof van der Merwe and Scott Styris ensured Titans beat Knights by eight wickets in Bloemfontein. Knights were put in to bat, and the openers were quickly dismissed by Morne Morkel with just 7 on the board. Dean Elgar and Pite van Biljon were involved in a 45-run stand to help steady the innings. Further contributions from Obus Pienaar (31) and Johan van der Wath (19*) helped Knights post a respectable 132 for 7. Morkel was the standout bowler with figures of 4 for 19, and he took vital wickets to keep the innings in check.

Henry Davids was removed early for 4 in Titans' chase, before Heino Kuhn and van der Merwe put together a 37-run stand. Styris and van der Merwe soaked up any pressure and paced their innings well to chase the Knights' total with four balls to spare. With this result, Titans moved to the top of the points table, just a point ahead of Lions, who still have a game in hand.

The match between Dolphins and Warriors was abandoned without a ball bowled due to intermittent rain.
