Northerns 5 for 0 trail Easterns 306 (Cullinan 61, Koenig 51, Z de Bruin 51, Jennings 50, Thomas 4-67) by 301 runs
The top-of-the-table clash at SuperSport Park in Centurion ended evenly at the end of the first day, with Easterns getting 4.12 batting points and Northerns getting 4.0 with the ball. Winning the toss and batting, Easterns lost an early wicket, but consolidated well with Sven Koenig, Zander de Bruin, Daryll Cullinan and Dylan Jenning making half-centuries. Alfonso Thomas kept Northerns in the game with a fine spell of bowling, ending the innings with 4 for 67. At close Northerns were 5 for no loss.
Boland 48 for 0 trail Gauteng 228 (Ackerman 47, de Lange 7-48) by 180 runs
At Randjesfontein Gauteng, after winning the toss, came under the hammer from Boland, being bowled out for 228 on a faily placid pitch. At one point Gauteng had been coating on 144 for 4, but Con de Lange turned things around for Boland. Coming on as the third-change bowler, de Lange bowled himself to a career best 7 for 48 as the batsmen struggled to come to turn with his left-arm orthodox spinners. At close Boland totaled 48 without loss.
