Chasing 151, Imperial Lions started off terribly and lost 3 top order batsmen for a total of 41. All the hopes of Imperial Lions victory now rode on the shoulders of Rassie van der Dussen. He played well for his 33 runs but he was unable to wave his magic wand and got out to Prenelan Subrayen.

They collected 46 runs for the 2nd wicket partnership at a quick pace and bailed their team out of trouble. Zubayr Hamza made a very good looking 57 off 45 balls. A death overs cameo of 48 in 20 balls by George Linde propelled the total to 181 for 5 in 20 overs.
Chasing 181, Warriors lost Marco Marais and Gihahn Cloete early on in the innings. Jon Jon Smuts and Lesiba Ngoepe tried to resurrect the innings but Ngoepe perished soon after scoring 3 boundaries. After the introduction of George Linde into the attack, the middle order simply surrendered and the scoreboard displayed 75 for 7. Marco Jansen and Anrich Nortje then lit a ray of hope with their quick fire partnership of 67 runs but it was too good to be true. Once Nortje was dismissed, the hope vanished vanished in no time.
