CAPE TOWN – The Warriors needed to win their two remaining games and hope that the other matches’ results fell in their favour to make the semi-finals of the RamSlam T20, and on Sunday they succeeded in that quest.
Their match on Friday against the Lions seemed to be destined to be called off as the weather seemed to be on the side of a no result. The rain though disappeared, and the Warriors made 133/4 in 17.1 overs and managed to restrict the Lions to 92/7, a few runs short of their revised, Duckworth-Lewis method, target of 97 runs, from 10 overs.
A win again was non-negotiable in their final match of the round robin phase against the Cape Cobras at Buffalo Park Stadium in East London. The Warriors went in to bat first and made 168/5, with captain Jon-Jon Smuts leading from the front, making 48 to top the scoring.
The Warriors then came in, to restrict the Cobras to 150/6 to secure their spot in the semi-finals.
