The unbeaten Auckland Aces got a complete thrashing on Wednesday afternoon as the Titans completely shot down their batsmen to win by a whopping margin of 59 runs and ensure that they are all but through to the Champions League T20 semi-finals. A good batting performance saw the Titans set a stiff target of 173 which was then defended with ease as the Aces collapsed for 113 to some disciplined bowling by the Titans' bowlers.

Being put in to bat, the Titans began their innings defying any assistance to the bowlers by the pitch. A boundary off almost every over, some classy drives and some over the top, forced Auckland to use 5 bowlers within the first 8 overs. Azhar Mahmood struck in the ninth over, removing Henry Davids for 36 (23b) and this slowed the scoring rate a bit. The Titans still managed to find the occasional boundary with Jacques Rudolph anchoring the innings brilliantly till he fell for 63 in the 18th over. Farhaan Behardien took charge towards the end with some controlled acceleration as he moved quickly to 48* off just 23 balls, striking three sixes along the way as the Titans posted an imposing 172-4.

South African powerhouse the Titans opened their Champions League T20 campaign with a very impressive 39 run demolition of the Perth Scorchers at SuperSport Park, Centurion on Saturday afternoon. Being put into bat on losing the toss, the Titan openers got their side off to a rollicking start, adding 109 runs for the opening wicket. Jacques Rudolph remained unbeaten on 83 from just 59 balls, while Henry Davids made a more than handy 54 from 38 deliveries to set the Titans on their way.

The home side failed to make the most of their start, faltering towards the ends of their innings to finish with a par score of 163-4 in their 20 overs, having looked good for 180-190 for the better part of their innings. The Perth bowlers with the exception of Nathan Rimmington (2-20) and Brad Hogg (0-26) had largely ordinary outings.
