Boje bags eight as Eagles swoop

Cricinfo staff

Nicky Boje showed South Africa just what they were missing in India as he took a career-best 8 for 102 to set up victory for Eagles. By the time he had ripped apart Cape Cobras' line-up, his side needed just 11 runs for what was a ten-wicket win. Boje struck twice in his second over, removing Andrew Puttick and Herschelle Gibbs (26 for 2). Derrin Bassage (65) and Jean-Paul Duminy (128) threatened with a third-wicket stand of 137, but Boje accounted for both - and more.

Dolphins eased to victory against Warriors early on the fourth day at Kingsmead. Warriors extended their overnight lead by just four runs before they lost their final two wickets to leave Dolphins needing 58 runs for victory. Doug Watson fell for a duck, but that was the only alarm as the home side completed the win in under an hour; they needed just 13 overs.

The Titans had already completed an emphatic 110-run victory over the Lions by day three.
