Mashonaland Eagles 147 for 7 (Chigumbura 47, Trego 45) beat Southern Rocks 77 (Nathan Waller 3-8)

Mashonaland Eagles sealed the fourth semi-final berth by trouncing Southern Rocks by 70 runs at the Harare Sports Club. Rocks crumbled in their chase, with only four batsmen reaching double-digits. Seamer Nathan Waller finished with 3 for 8 as Rocks were shout out for 77 without even threatening to chase down the 148-run target.

Eagles total was built around Peter Trego's 45 and Elton Chigumbura's 47. The Somerset allrounder Trego had scored 71 not out in Eagles' last game and carried on that form, keeping the runs flowing though Eagles lost early wickets. Chigumubura then provided the run-rate with a boost, striking at 138.23 and hitting two sixes and a four. Shane Burger, the South African seamer, took four wickets but Eagles' total was more than enough. They will now meet Rhinos in the first semi-final, on December 2.
