Western Province Boland 122 for 7 beat Eastern Cape 121 for 9 (Kleinveldt 3-18) by 3 wickets
Scorecard

Eastern Cape found it tough going in their first outing in the Series, as Western Province Boland restricted them to 121 for 9 in 20 overs. Mark Boucher top-scored with 24, but they were always on the back foot as Rory Kleinveldt took 3 for 18. Two run-outs did help matters either.

WPB made heavy work of the chase, however, scrambling a run off the final ball to win by three wickets. Both openers, Andrew Puttick and Herschelle Gibbs, were out without scoring, while Jacques Kallis, making his first appearance, received a painful blow to the hand from Monde Zondeki. He responded with two pointed boundaries, but when he fell for 30, the run-rate decreased and WPB were left needing five off the final over. A wicket for Makhaya Ntini increased the excitement, but WPB prevailed.
