    Knights’ season review

    Brief overview The Knights finished fourth in the 4-Day Domestic Series, but were fewer than two points shy of snaring second position before the premature end to the season. They also qualified for the One-Day Cup semi-finals.

    Titans’ season review

    Brief overview The Titans might have beaten the Lions to the 4-Day Domestic Series title, had the season not ended early.

The franchise also reinspired Jon-Jon Smuts’ waning international career and must… Read more →
