Titans beat Brisbane Heats by four runs

Mohali, Sep 24 : Titans kept alive their hopes of a semi-final berth as they successfully defended a small total to beat Brisbane Heats by four runs in a Group B match of the Champions League Twenty20 at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium here Tuesday.


It was some poor batting that let down the Titans of South Africa after they were put in by the Heats.

Henry Davids (39), Heino Kuhn (31) and AB de Villiers (28) were the only players to get to double digits as the Titans were all out for 123 runs with seven balls to spare.

For Heats, pacer Matthew Gale got four for 10 while Dan Christian took two for 16.

Titans atoned for their poor batting with some exceptional bowling to pack up Brisbane Heats for 119 runs in 20 overs.

Pacer Marchant de Lang was the pick of the bowlers with three for 13 while left-arm pacer Rowan Richards got two for 20.

Heats' skipper James Hopes was the top scorer with 37 while Christian made 21.

There was, however, some excitement at the end as Heats needed 10 runs off the final over. But they lost three wickets instead, including two run outs, and the match ended with de Lange bowling Alister McDermott.

Brief scores: Titans 123 all out in 18.5 overs (Henry Davids 39, Heino Kunn 31; Matthew Gale 4-10, Dan Christian 2-16). Brisbane Heat 119 all out in 20 overs (James Hopes 37, Christian 21; Marchant de Lange 3-13, Rowan Richards 2-20). Titans won by four runs.
