Dolphins qualified for the final of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge with a 31-run win over Titans in the semi-final at Kingsmead, Durban on Thursday.

 

Chasing a target of 201 runs to win, Titans were bowled out for 169 off 19.2 overs.

 

Heino Kuhn smashed 39-ball 78, studded with six sixes and four boundaries as his innings was the only bright side for the Titans. For Dolphins, Mthokozisi Shezi was the pick among the bowlers to register the figures of 4-0-39-4.

 

Earlier in the first innings, David Miller‘s blitzkrieg and Cameron Delport‘s 34 helped Dolphins set a daunting target of 201 against Titans. Asked to bat after losing the toss, Dolphins recovered well from 80 for four to post 200/4 from their allotted 20 overs.

 

Miller swatted as many as nine sixes and six boundaries to score a rapid 93 not out off just 37 balls, putting his side in command against the Titans. It was his knock that helped Dolphins recover from a spot of bother in the semi-final clash.

 

Titans started off on a positive note with their opener Cameron Delport opening up in the second over of the match, as the left-handed batsman smashed three boundaries off Ethy Mbhalati to start off the proceedings.

 

Brief scores:

 

Dolphins 200 for 4 in 20 overs (Cameron Delport 34, David Miller 93*, Vaughn van Jaarsveld 22*; Albie Morkel 1 for 27) beat Titans 169 in 19.2 overs (Heino Kuhn 76, Mangaliso Mosehle 31; Mthokozisi Shezi 4 for 39, Robbie  Frylinck 3 for 26) by 31 runs.
