In the second of the scheduled 20/20 double headers, West recorded win number two but not before South sent a scare through the West camp, and only fell at the final hurdle.
West batting first, were held to a moderate score of 98 but were then able to hold their nerve, keeping the Southerners to a even less moderate 6/78 from their alloted 20 overs on a perfect batting deck. The scores show that the bowling was on top all day.
South got off to a perfect start, having both Henry and Handberg dismissed cheaply and with the important wicket of Curtis Jelbert, West had slumped to 3/20 and South looked the goods.
