The matches are unbelievable, both semi finals went to a third leg and both ended up with a tie. Johan Louw smashed a 6 off the last ball to the match with the Cape Cobras, while the could only manage 7 from the last over and force a tie.
The Eagles manage to win the 1 over bowlout scoring 16 compared to the Warriors paltry 5. The Eagles will meet the Cape Cobras on Friday after they won their bowl out against the Dolphins
Get ready for a great final with all the Proteas still around for the match
Pay special attention to CJ de Villiers, he was the man of the match for the Eagles game and has had a fantastic season so far
This tournament is a benchmark to get the fringe players into the National side and has helped players like Philander make a name for himself. SA has performed well in this competition – often SA have taken players with international experience which generally the other sides don’t have. Watch out for Wayne Parnell fresh from the u19 World cup. Dean Elgar is a definite up and coming youngster to watch and Henry Davids has had the season of his life.
“We have won this competition in the last two years, beating Australia and New Zealand in the final. This is a tough competition and the experience gained by our players is invaluable for the later international tours”, Vince van der Bijl, Cricket South Africa’s High Performance general manager said.
