After three consecutive losses, Warriors finally opened their account in the tournament with a comfortable 36-run win in Benoni against Impi, who slid to their sixth-successive defeat. The Warriors were bolstered by the return of Colin Ingram from the South African Twenty20 squad in New Zealand, and the batsman made an unbeaten 42 to finish the innings after Ashwell Prince scored 63 as opener. Prince departed in the 15th over, hitting five fours and two sixes in his knock. Ingram and Craig Thyssen, whose unbeaten 49 came off 24 balls, took the score to 182 for 2. In reply, Impi could only manage 146, but it was enough to deny Warriors a bonus point. Their top order failed to convert starts against an experienced bowling attack comprising Makhaya Ntini and Nicky Boje.
The match between Knights and Titans at Bloemfontein was abandoned without a ball bowled.
