PAARL – A thrilling 30-ball 55 by Aviwe Mgijima helped the Cape Cobras consolidate their position at the top of the CSA T20 Challenge table with a narrow three-wicket win over the Titans at Boland Park in Paarl on Wednesday.
The right-hander struck three sixes and three fours for his career-best score in a high-scoring affair, which saw the 182/3 set by the defending champions chased down with seven balls to spare.
The home side had briefly lost top position earlier in the evening when the Warriors thumped the Highveld Lions, but regained their spot with a composed victory that put them two points clear with two round-robin games remaining.
They had won the toss and put the Titans into bat, but Mark Boucher’s side responded by amassing a healthy total.
This was thanks in the main to Tony de Zorzi’s 70 off 47 balls (4x4, 3x6) as well as a half-century from Theunis de Bruyn (50 off 37 balls, 4x4, 1x6).
