The Knights clinched the final semifinal spot of the Momentum One Cup when they beat the Titans by three-wickets in Centurion on Sunday.
In what was the final match of the group stages, a win for either side would’ve guaranteed a spot in the final-four with the Dolphins, Lions and Warriors already through to the playoff phase of the competition.
On a tricky Supersport Park surface, the men from Bloemfontein won the toss and decided to bowl first.
And, it was a decision that played beautifully into the hands of spinner Shaun von Berg, who accounted for five Titans wickets as the home-side were knocked over for only 138 runs inside 31.5 overs.
Mbulelo Budaza also chipped in with three dismissals with Marco Jansen adding two himself.
With only five Titans batsmen managing double figures, Tony de Zorzi was the only glimmer of hope at the top of the order with 61.
The Knights, though, didn’t have it plain-sailing in their run-chase and their batsmen were also made to work hard for their runs.
But, valuable contributions by Andries Gouws, Jacques Snyman and Keegan Petersen helped their team reach the 139 run-total with just less than 20 overs to spare.
