Their bowling performance was top notch until the first 10 overs, but gave away too many in the last 10 to help the opposition in posting a score of 189 runs. Then, the batters like Stephen Baard (29) and Craig Williams (43) tried hard with hefty contributions at the top order. But, apart from David Wiese (43), none of the players in the middle order could get going to chase down the score and lost by 45 runs.
