Dave Vilas hit a superb half century to help the Highveld Lions beat the Nashua Titans by 4 wickets at SuperSport Park in Centurion.
Set a target of 146 for the victory the Lions recorded the win with 8 balls to spare thanks to Vilas (53) and Zander de Bruyn (39) who enjoyed a 78 run partnership after the Lions were 46-3.
The Titans who are the defending Pro20 champs suffered their first lost of the season. They got off to the worst possible start losing openers Blake Snijman (8) and Gulam Bodi (7) inside the first 9 balls.
Jacques Rudolph scored an important 58 lower down the order for the Titans but the damage had already been done at the start of the innings.
