Southern Rocks 97 for 1 (Chibhabha 45*) beat Matabeleland Tuskers 94 (Vitori 5-26) by nine wickets
Scorecard

Southern Rocks' seamers decimated Matabeleland Tuskers's batting line-up in Harare, and took their team to a spot in the final of the MetBank Pro40 Championship. Left-armer Brian Vitori led the way with three early wickets, and Tuskers crashed to 94 all out. Michael Chinouya and Robertson Chinyengetere chipped in with two and three wickets each, before Vitori came back and completed his five-for to finish with a career-best 5 for 26 in his ninth limited-overs match.

Tuskers never managed to string together any partnerships; the 27 runs between Bradley Staddon and Tawanda Mupariwa for the ninth wicket was their highest stand. Rocks made light work of the meagre target. Chamu Chibhabha scored 45 nout out and Craig Ervine, recently returned from the World Cup, got an unbeaten 35 as Rocks won by nine wickets.
