Rudi Second notched his 14th first-class hundred in style as the Knights piled up 360-5 against the Warriors in their Sunfoil match in Bloemfontein.
He fell just one over from the close on 151, having faced 200 balls and slapping 26 fours: a strike rate of 75.5.
Keegan Petersen (36), kept Second company in a fourth-wicket stand of 98, until he fell on what was declared the last ball of the day. In between Theunis de Bruyn had to retire hurt, after he had contributed 31 to a stand of 49.
Second picked up where Rilee Rossouw left off, after the newly-declared Kolpak player raced to 83 off 96 balls (10×4). The two took the score from 75-2 to 195 when Rossouw was trapped lbw by another Kolpaker, off-spinner Simon Harmer.
Meanwhile, in Centurion, when the rain finally relented the Titans, who had chosen to bat, got off to a good start against the Cobras, until they were reined back to 114-3 in the 31 overs available.
Aiden Markram and Dean Elgar laid the base with 86 in just 20 overs for the first wicket. The Titans were in hurry, but the brakes were applied by Tshepo Moreki, whose fast-medium deliveries accounted for both off successive balls.
Elgar had hammered his 43 off 48 balls (7×4) and Markram (32) was more pedestrian with his 32 off 81.
Henry Davids fell for 10 shortly before the close, leaving Grant Mokoena (5) and Heino Kuhn (8) holding the fort.
