The penultimate day got underway on a damp ACG with light drizzle falling with the slippery conditions favouring the batting side. The Boks amassed a league high 1/165, H Jordaan 84* (42), H McDonald 36* (15).

A place in the final was the reward for the winner and ICC threw everything at the Boks early to reach 0/51 after 5 overs. However, the wheels fell off the ICC wagon in the 6th over with the loss of two wickets. ICC batted through their 16 overs, finishing their season with a 57 run loss.

In the second game, top of the table the Phuket Blasters didn’t have it all their own way against the winless Patong. In the rain affected match, the Black Horses put in their strongest performance of the season churning out 6/99 from their 12 overs. S Hamilton 20 (17), N Quail 20 (11).

Needing 8.25 runs per over to win, the Blasters lost Manish Sadarangani (8*) to an injury early on. Off the next ball Quail bowled Master Blaster Ali Khan. But Sameer Khan’s experience got the Blasters to the target with just 3 balls to spare. Blasters 2/103 (11.2), S Khan 34*(26), I Malik 20 (10).

The Kuckreja Boks sent the Phuket Blasters in to bat first in the C&C Marine final. After watching the Boks score 165 runs in the morning, the Blasters sent their two biggest hitters out to bat at 1 and 3.

Ali Khan (14) was the first wicket to fall, followed shortly after by Malik (8). The Boks strong bowling line-up didn’t provide any respite for the Blasters batsmen, restricting them to 3/52 at the 8-over drink break. Three wickets fell in three overs after the break, then the Blasters were eventually all out 85 from 12.5 overs. Rishi Sadarangani 18 (18), H.Jordaan 2/10, E.Jacobs 2/13.

Chasing the lowest C&C Marine 8’s total this season wasn’t too hard for the in-form Boks. two LBW decisions in the first two overs brought the small ACG crowd to life but P Morton and A Van Blerk weren’t about to let the cup slip away.

The two combined for a 70 run partnership passing the Blasters total with 5.3 overs to spare. Boks 2/87 (10.2 overs), Morton 33* (27), Van Blerk 18* (13).
