• Warriors stun Titans for first T20 win

    The Warriors pulled off a surprise victory by beating the Titans by 43 runs on Wednesday for their first win of the CSA T20 Challenge.

    Coach Robin Petersen handed debuts to Tristan Stubbs and Lizo Makhosi to take on the star-studded lineup of the Titans in Durban.

    Having suffered their third consecutive defeat of the competition by the Cobras on Tuesday, the Warriors looked determined to respond.

    Stubbs top-scored with 44, while Ayabulela Gqamane struck 37 off 17 deliveries, helping the Warriors post 157-9 in their allotted 20 overs.

    Mthiwekhaya Nabe then delivered a clinical bowling performance, while receiving assistance from the likes of Marco Jansen and Wihan Lubbe.

    Nabe was brilliant with the ball, bagging impressive figures of 4-21 in his spell with Jansen taking 2-21 in his four overs.

    The Titans batting lineup failed to fire, despite boasting many big hitters in their team as Aiden Markram top-scored with 31.

    Tight bowling meant the men from Pretoria could manage only 114-9 in their 20 overs, making it back-to-back defeats for the Titans.
