Easterns survived a serious attack of the jitters, eventually chasing down 135 with two wickets left against Free State. At 66 for 2 the chase appeared a formality, but Andre Abrahams produced a superb spell with his legspin that reduced Easterns to 89 for 7. However, David Wiese continued his brilliant all-round match with a composed 39, to follow his 168 in the first innings, and added a vital 42 with Tumelo Bodibe.

Western Province completed an emphatic 10-wicket win against Border, despite being left with a depleted attack. The second innings bowling was largely in the hands of Faghme Jardine and Mark de Stadler and they sent down more than 79 overs between them. Jardine's 5 for 118 was instrumental in Border losing their last eight wickets for 108 runs. Laden Gamiet made a determined 93, but couldn't find the necessary support from the middle order.
