Bloemfontein – The Titans are on course to win the SuperSport Series for a fourth time in spite of their draw against the Dolphins in Benoni.

With three matches left in the series, the Titans are runaway leaders on 83.98 at the top of the log. The Lions are second on 59.74 after overtaking the Cape Cobras with an impressive batting performance in their draw in Paarl.

The Cape Cobras, who earlier did not get any points for the match against the Knights in Bloemfontein that was rained out, slipped from second to fourth.

The Cobras have 58.28 points, while the Dolphins are third on 59.38.

The Warriors notched up their first win in seven attempts in Kimberley the past week, with 16 wickets falling on the second as well as the third day. However, they are still last on 39.08 in spite of the win by two wickets.

The Lions’ Neil McKenzie is still the leading run-scorer, with 771 runs in 11 innings.

He is one of three batsmen that have already scored more than 600 runs.

Team-mate Zander de Bruyn has scored 653 runs, while Titans captain Jacques Rudolph has scored 621 runs in 12 innings.

Rilee Rossouw scored 1189 runs last season.

Dillon du Preez’s record of 55 wickets in a season also appears safe.

Dolphins spinner Imran Tahir took 42 wickets in just five games, but has been tripped up by his national commitments.
