Donovan Ferreira’s maiden first-class century powered the Northerns Titans to a four-wicket win against the EP Warriors at St George’s Park on Wednesday.
In a rain-affected match, the Warriors sportingly declared both of their innings closed – 281-8 in the first and 134-4 in the second.
With the Titans having made 141-9 declared in their first innings, they required 275 to win on the final day.
They reached it thanks to a brilliant 116* off 103 balls from Ferreira, batting at No 7. He hit 12 fours and six sixes.
