Titans fought their way back in their Ram Slam T20 Challenge semi-final against Dolphins, who reached 83 for four after 13 overs, at Kingsmead, Durban on Thursday.
Dolphins slipped from 51 for one in the sixth over to 83 for four after 13 overs as Titans gained command of the game.
Morne van Wyk’s stay at the crease was ended by Titans’ skipper Henry Davids, who had him caught by Heino Kuhn for 21 off 20 balls. Van Wyk smashed three boundaries during his stay at the crease.
Cody Chetty, who came to bat after van Wyk’s dismissal, continued his good form with the bat this season. The right-handed batsman started off with couple of singles, but his stay at the crease was ended when he was cleaned up by David Wiese for 13.
David Miller walked in during the 10th over of the game, but runs dried up for the Dolphins. Soon, in the 12th over, Delport went for a switch-hit off Saeed Ajmal and he was caught at the deep square-leg region.
Earlier, Dolphins’ openers Cameron Delport and Morne van Wyk provided their side a confident start as they reached 48 for no loss after six overs.
