The CSA T20 Challenge has entered the business end and in the 2nd semi-final of the tournament, we have the Western Province taking on the Rocks in what is expected to be an absolute fire cracker of a game.

Western Province placed second in the group stage after winning five of the seven games they played in the group round. They did, however, lose their last two games, to the Titans and the Dolphins, which could be a significant impact in this contest.

Against North West, the Rocks won four out of three games, including a Super Over victory. They were defeated by Knights in their final group stage match. Western Province defeated Rocks by six wickets in their most recent meeting, which took place in the very first match of the competition.

The match is scheduled to take place on the 25th of February, 2022 at St.George’s Park, Port Elizabeth.
