Scorecard

Overcast conditions at Goodyear Park in Bloemfontein assisted the Eagles opening bowlers as Western Province Boland were bowled out for 242, with Johannes van der Wath and Cliff Deacon picking up four wickets apiece. JP Duminy was the saviour for WP Boland, compiling a patient but accomplished 92 before becoming the last man out. He shared useful partnerships with Thami Tsolekile (32), Con de Lange (14) and Alan Dawson (34), to spare his side embarrassment - they fought back from 34 for 4 and 180 for 8 to finish with 242. The Eagles overcame an early setback when Davey Jacobs was bowled by Charl Willoughby for 3 to end the day at 43 for 1, with Jonathan Beukes on 25 and James Henderson on 12.

Titans 213 (Toyana 94, Tweedie 3-69) lead Dolphins 37 for 0 by 176 runs
Scorecard

At Kingsmead the ball had the beating of the bat through most of the day. The Dolphins won the toss and inserted the Titans, then bowled them out for 213. Geoffrey Toyana's 94 helped the Titans get past the 200 mark, as wickets fell at regular intervals at the other end - the biggest partnership was 62 for the eighth wicket between Toyana and Paul Harris (20). The Dolphins bowlers shared the wickets around, with Andrew Tweedie recording the best figures of 3 for 69. When stumps were drawn early because of bad light the Dolphins were 37 without loss.

Lions 138 for 8 (Zondeki 3-13, Hayward 3-29) v Warriors
Scorecard

At St George's Park in Port Elizabeth rain washed out the first session of play. When proceedings started the Warriors stuck the Lions in, and soon had them under pressure. Brent Kops (2 for 57) and Mornantau Hayward (3 for 29) joined forces to reduce the Lions to 76 for 4 before Neil McKenzie mounted a slight recovery with 33. Monde Zondeki (3 for 13) and Hayward then teamed up to leave the Lions struggling on 138 for 8 when bad light stopped play on a day in which a total of 43 overs were lost to the weather.
