Eastern Province’s captain, Anthony Dakin, became the first player in the history of the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week to score a century in a T20 match. He smashed an unbeaten 107 runs from 74 deliveries at the main oval of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University against Northern Cape to secure his place in the history of the tournament.

Dakin struck ten fours and three sixes in this milestone innings. The previous best innings by player in a T20 match in the tournament was by Gauteng’s Bradley Dial (86) against North West during the 2012 edition in Potchefstroom. T20s were introduced to the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week for the first time in Benoni in 2009, but no matches in this format were possible due to rain on the third day of the tournament that year.

Dakin’s teammate, Lutho Sipamla, also experienced an exceptional day. He picked up a hat-trick of wickets on his way to gathering a total of five for just four runs. His victims included Roché Rossouw (16), Motheo Manake’s (0), André Share (0), Marko de Kock (4) and Craig Pinetown (11).
Mpumalanga’s seamer Elnu Potgieter also managed to pick up a five-wicket haul in his side’s victory of seven wickets against Limpopo. He removed five of the opposition’s batsmen for just eight runs.
Six teams managed to win both their T20 matches on the third day. They were Western Province, KwaZulu-Natal Inland, KwaZulu-Natal, Free State, Gauteng and Northerns. Of all the teams only Gauteng and Western Province will go into day four with an unbeaten record.
