That's a wrap to our coverage of this first game of the day. Do join us for the second game of the day between Warriors and Dragons starting in an hour's time and for other cricket all around the globe. For now, this is me Ayan Chatterjee signing off on behalf of my co-commentators Ninaad Dixit and Anirudh Modi. Till next time, stay safe, happy, and cool as we will catch up with you very shortly.  
So, the semi-finals line-up for Friday is set. It's going to be Titans vs Dolphins in the first semi-final followed by Western Province up against Dolphins in the second semi-final. The second game of the day between Warriors and Dragons becomes inconsequential with both teams eliminated from the competition. 
Prenelan Subrayen Winning Captain and Bowler of the Match: "We lose quick wickets in the powerplay but we do have experience in the middle order. Khaya and Andile were amazing. There's momentum going on with batting and bowling and we are in a much better space than before. We just want to stay calm and face the situation in the semis."
The batter of the Match, Khaya Zondo: "Yeah actually didn't want to say that we were 10 runs short but I had confidence in the bowlers. It was the way we started, a lovely win, the middle order came to the party. We had to win, it was a pressure on and we gained a little momentum heading into the semi finals."
Time for the post-match presentation. 
So, that's the end of the game. A massive win for Dolphins as they storm through to the semi-finals with a crushing 65-run win over Western Province. They win by a bonus point and make sure that the Province finishes in second place. The Warriors and Dragons are now knocked out of the tournament ahead of their clash coming up later today. 

Western Province never got going as they were skittled out for 83 runs all out in 15.4 overs. They got a decent start from Levi and Smith and at one stage, they were 42-2 they collapsed to 83 all out. Levi scored 15, Smith 17, but no one other than them gets going. A top score of 18 for Mgijima. 

It was all about the bowling today for the Dolphins as Subrayen the skipper led from the front 2-17 in 4 overs. A couple of wickets for Baartman and Phehlukwayo. Bryce Parsons was great with his 3 wickets for 22 runs in 3.4 overs. A wicket for Bosch as well as the Dolphins after an initial hiccup never allowed the Province to get any momentum through the innings. 

Earlier in the day, Dolphins after being put in to bat first by Wayne Parnell were 13-3 inside 3 overs with spin taking control. But boy, they recovered well to get to a competitive 148-5 in their allocated 20 overs. Khaya Zondo was the key player as he resurrected proceedings and anchored the innings with his unbeaten 59 off 51 balls. He was initially well-supported by Swardt 22 off 23 balls, Bryce Parsons 28 off 23 balls was invaluable. Andile Phehlukwayo with his hitting towards the end 25 off 10 balls with 2 fours and 2 sixes propelled the total to 148-5 which was a par score on that wicket. 

For, the Wester Province bowlers, George Linde and Mgijima stood out with their figures of 2-24 and 2-25 respectively. Junaid Dawood was impressive in his 1-15 in 4 overs. The rest of the bowlers particularly the pacers went the distance like skipper Wayne Parnell and Beuran Hendricks. The Dolphins realized that and as result, spun to win and cutters helped them in the win in the end. 

So, the Dolphins win this by 65 runs with a bonus point and will finish in 4th place. They are level on points with the Rocks but are below them on Head-to-Head count. A wake-up call for Western Province ahead of the semi-finals coming up on Friday. 

Stay tuned for the post-match presentation coming your way soon.
