Knights beat current Momentum One Day Cup table-toppers Lions by six wickets in a rain-affected match in Potchefstroom. Lions chose to bat and several cameo contributions helped lift them to 250 for 7. Stephen Cook and Neil McKenzie both scored half-centuries, No. 4 McKenzie remaining 67 not out of 105 balls to anchor the innings, while Chris Morris provided a final surge with 30 off 17. In the shortened chase, Knights needed 204 from 33 overs, and went at over a run a ball to knock off the runs with seven balls to spare. Incidentally, Knights' top-scoring batsman, Obus Pienaar, also made 67 not out, but his came at a strike-rate of 155.81 to beat the Duckworth/Lewis requirements.

A century from opener Imraan Khan helped Dolphins chase down 251 against Titans with four wickets and eight balls to spare in Durban. Titans chose to bat, and apart from a 142-run second-wicket partnership between Mangaliso Mosehle had no contribution of note. Mosehle hit a century too, his 118 being the top score in the match. But only one other batsman got into double digits as Titans were bowled out for 250 in the 46th over. It was not enough, as the rest of the Dolphins' top-order batsmen batted around centurion Imraan to help their side home.

Cape Cobras slipped to their third defeat in four games, losing to Warriors by 76 runs in East London. Cobras needed 263 to win, and the only sizeable innings for them was opener Richard Levi, who hit a rapid 83. With the Warriors bowlers sharing the wickets around, Cobras suffered regular blows and finally faded quickly: they went from 158 for 4 to 186 all out in the space of 7.2 overs. Warriors total, after they had chosen to bat, built their innings around half-centuries from Wayne Parnell and Michael Price.
