Matabeleland Tuskers produced a performance not in keeping with their last-place ranking, thumping Southern Rocks by eight wickets with over 19 overs remaining in Bulawayo. The Tuskers justified their decision to field, rolling the Rocks for 123 in 39.2 overs. The bowlers shared the wickets around, with Gavin Ewing finishing with the best figures: 3 for 24. Ewing then came good with the bat, scoring a patient 49 not out, to take Tuskers home with Steven Trenchard for company.

In the other match, a rain-marred top-of-the-table clash in Harare, the Mashonaland Eagles beat the Mid West Rhinos via the Duckworth-Lewis method. After being asked to bat, the Rhinos could managed only 189 for 9 in their 50. The only real contribution for them came from Roland Benade, who made 67. After rain interrupted the chase repeatedly, the recalculated score left Eagles a very undemanding 61 from 20, which they easily surpassed.
