Warriors 282 for 6 (Ingram 112, Thyssen 40*) beat Knights 280 for 5 (Elgar 89) by four wickets

A century from Colin Ingram and Craig Thyssen's unbeaten 40 off 29 balls helped Warriors chase Knights' total of 280 in Bloemfontein, and go through to the final of the Franchise 1-day Cup where they will meet Cape Cobras. Ingram's 112 off 111 balls had ensured the Warriors stayed abreast of the required-rate for the whole of the chase but he fell before finishing the job. Thyssen, though, prevented the Knights from making a comeback and took the Warriors home with an over to spare.

Knights took a wicket in the second over of the chase but were then thwarted by a 126-run partnership between Ingram and Arno Jacobs, who scored 54. Ingram carried on after Jacobs was dismissed and it was not until he was bowled by offspinner Werner Coetsee that the Knights had a small chance. Another wicket fell 15 balls after Ingram's dismissal but Thyseen counterattacked, hitting two sixes and three fours in his brisk innings.

Knights had reached a competitive total thanks to Reeza Hendricks' 70 and Dean Elgar's 89 not out. It was a solid batting effort, with just five wickets falling, and the run-rate above five for most of the innings. The total of 280 was not enough though.

The final will be played on December 9 in Cape Town.
