After a 12 runs victory in a high scoring encounter by the SWD champion, George (who posted 1776/6) against Vredenburg Saldanha from Boland (165/7) there were high hopes for the men from George.  After recording an impressive 8 wickets victory against Vredenburg/Saldanha the men from Durbanville were also too strong from George and won by a similar margin (by 8 wickets) in the decisive match.  Durbanville (132/2 in 15.1 overs) easily surpassed the winning target after George was restricted to 130/6 in their allotted 20 overs.
