Cape Town - The Titans secured their place in the CSA T20 Challenge playoffs after ending Western Province's unbeaten run at St George's Park on Saturday.
The Sky Blues were dominant in all facets of the game with Province enduring a rare off day at the office.
Lizaad Williams set up the victory with an inspired new-ball spell that included the big wicket of Richard Levi in the first over of the innings. Province rely heavily on Levi providing the momentum during the Powerplay and struggled to get going after Levi's dismissal.
It was only when Dane Vilas (60 not out) joined Tony de Zorzi (45) after Jonathan Bird's departure did WP find any rhythm.
The pair initially ran well between the wickets before attacking the Titans spinners during their 85-run partnership for the third wicket.

Williams though returned at the death to close out the innings superbly by restricting WP to 140/5.
Although the contest went down to the last over, the Titans were never under any pressure during the run chase.
Openers Quinton de Kock and Theunis de Bruyn laid the platform with 43 and 37 respectively that nullified the threat the impressive WP new-ball bowlers Beuran Hendricks and Wayne Parnell posed.
It was then left to young Dewald Brevis (26) to entertain before Heinrich Klaasen (33 not out) took the Titans home with three balls to spare.
