Pretoria -  Seemingly cruising to victory at 150 for 4, the Titans have collapsed to 210 all out to give the Warriors a 63 run victory via the Duckworth-Lewis method in their One-Day Cup match at Centurion on Friday.

Set a revised target of 274 for victory, it was the unlikely intervention of JJ Smuts which spurred the Warriors to the win.

The slow-left arm bowler ended the innings of top scorer Heino Kuhn for 82 at the 27 over mark with the score on 150 for 5. Kuhn who had shared in a 53-run stand with Graeme van Buuren (42), misjudged a straight delivery from Smuts as he was trapped lbw.

Jacobs fell soon after in the 36th over for the same score of 59.

Back in trouble at 164 for 5, it was the turn of Christiaan Jonker (49) and Simon Harmer (43) both scoring at faster than a run a ball which helped the visitors post a formidable total of 284 for 8 in their 50 overs, which would later prove a match-winning total.
