Captain and all-rounder, Jaydee Bester, was the hero for Hartenbos.  He excelled with the bat (38 from 45 balls; 2×6, 4×4) and thereafter took 3/18 in 10 overs (with 5 maidens).

In the final that was played at the Six Gun Grill Recreation Ground in Oudtshoorn Hartenbos won the toss and batted first.  They posted 228/9 in their allotted 50 overs thanks to contributions by Nelis van der Linde (47), Bester (38), and Roann Bekker (32).  For Blanco Logan Stoffels bagged 3/47.

Blanco struggled against a match-winning bowling spell by Bester (3/18 in 10 overs) and Dawie Dyason (4/28 in 6 overs) as they were dismissed in the 24th over for only 84.  Hartenbos will next season be promoted to Division 1 at the expense of Mayflower who will be relegated.

The summarised scorecard is:

Promotion League Division 2 final:  Hartenbos vs Blanco

HARTENBOS 228/9 – 50 overs (Jaydee Bester 38, Nelis van der Linde 47, Roann Bekker 32, Logan Stoffels 3/47)
