Cape Town - The Titans cruised to victory in the One-Day Cup final against the Dolphins on Sunday, with Proteas star Aiden Markram playing another stellar innings.
His knock of 127 (88) in the final was his third century of the competition following his 169 (129) against the Cape Cobras and 139 (127) against Warriors in the pool stages.
Markram finished the tournament as the leading run-scorer, but it is the fact that he only featured in five matches that makes his return so special.
In just 5 innings, Markram scored 542 runs at a ridiculous average of 108.4 and at an equally absurd strike-rate of 132.84.
To put that into perspective, Cape Cobras wicketkeeper/batsman Kyle Verreynne finished as the second-highest run-scorer with 453 runs at an average of 64.71 from 9 innings.
Markram's team-mate Junior Dala, meanwhile, finished as the competition's leading wicket-taker with 27 scalps from 11 matches at an average of just 16.59.
While Markram has all but booked his ticket to the Cricket World Cup in England this year, Dala is not necessarily considered to be in the plans.
However, with Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje injured, though, he might come into play.
