Cape Town - Andrea Agathangelou made an unbeaten 77 and Eldred Hawken returned best-ever Sunfoil Series figures as the Titans and Cape Cobras played to an expected draw in their penultimate match of the competition in Paarl on Sunday.

Batting had dominated the entire four days of the match at Boland Park, meaning that both sides had to be content with a draw that now gives both a chance for a shot at the title in next week’s final round of games after the other two matches also ended in draws.

It was the Titans that enjoyed the better of the final day after starting out by claiming the final seven Cobras wickets for just 67.

The hosts began day four batting on 393 for three, but succumbed for 460 thanks to Hawken’s four for 82, which beat his previous best return of three for 47 against the Warriors two seasons back.

There was also three for 65 for Tabraiz Shamsi, while star overnight pair of Pieter Malan and Kyle Verreynne managed to add just nine between them on the fourth morning – the pair ending on 180 (466 balls, 14 fours, 1 six) and 75 (176 balls, 7 fours) respectively.

Agathangelou then struck 11 fours in his flowing 83-ball knock, but the game was called early as the two sides were left to settle for a draw.

The Cobras walked away with 11.2 points and the Titans 10.8.
