Davey Jacobs's 128 was not enough to save the Eagles from a 92-run loss against the Titans at Willowmoore Park in Benoni. Set a target of 416 to win, the Eagles were bowled out for 323 with the Titans bowlers all sharing the wickets. Jacques Rudolph, who scored 58, and Jacobs put up some early resistance while Craig Thyssen (33) and Jacobs put together a 95-run sixth wicket partnership. Once that stand was broken the end came quickly as the Titans walked away with 18.5 points.

The Lions lost two quick wickets in the morning to give the Dolphins a glimmer of hope of victory, but a 105 from Vaughn van Jaarsveld and a 137-run partnership with Matthew Harris (49 not out) put the match beyond either team. The Lions declared at 283 for 5, leaving the Dolphins an unrealistic target of 340. When the match was called off Natal had moved to 165 for 3, with Doug Watson unbeaten on 70.

The Cobras beat the Warriors in three days, in a game which ended yesterday.
