A splendid five-wicket haul by Basheer Walters helped the Warriors stun defending champions the Titans by 216 runs on the final day of their 4-Day Domestic Series encounter in East London on Monday.
The fast bowler claimed an impressive 5/35 in nine overs – his eighth career five-for – as the visitors were ruthlessly dispatched for 136, sealing a second biggest win for the hosts in terms of runs over their opponents.
The Titans were chasing an unlikely target of 353 in 45 overs after the Warriors had declared their second innings earlier on 310/5.
The Eastern Cape franchise had started day four with captain Jon-Jon Smuts unbeaten on 49 and seeking quick runs to add to their 254/5.
The skipper got his way by striking 75 (128 balls, 12x4), with good support coming from young partner Sinethemba Qeshile (27).
