SUNFOIL SERIES RACE TO GO DOWN TO THE WIRE
The race for the 2017/18 Sunfoil Series is set to go down to the wire after the latest round of games were completed on Sunday.
Five teams still have a mathematical chance of claiming the title making for a thrilling climax at the three venues that will be hosting the games – Durban, Potchefstroom and Centurion.
The Warriors (128,04 points) currently lead the race following their epic draw with the VKB Knights on Sunday, a match that went down to the wire with the Eastern Cape franchise falling eight runs short of what would have been a massive victory.
As it stands, they will travel to the fifth-placed Hollywoodbets Dolphins (114,44) on Thursday knowing that only victory will do if they want to win the four-day title for the first time in the franchise era.
Anything less at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead will leave their fate hinging on other results. Their KwaZulu-Natal opponents are also still in with a shout, although their prospects are the slimmest of the five teams in contention.
They will have to win the game with plenty of bonus points and hope rain washes out the other two matches completely for their best chance.
The World Sports Betting Cape Cobras (127,02) are presently second and face the bottom-of-the-table bizhub Highveld Lions (96,28) at Senwes Park.
For the Cape side to finish top, a win is likely to do, provided the Warriors either draw or lose in Durban. Even if the leaders do win, the Cobras can still overtake them with a big victory of their own – considering that just over a point separates the top two.
In the final game of round 10, third plays fourth at SuperSport Park. Defending champions the Knights (124,32) and the Multiply Titans (121,58) also maintain interest in the title race.
Only a win will do, though, and the victorious team will in all likelihood claim the title should the Warriors and Cobras lose.
A win without many bonus points for the pair, coupled with a big win for third or fourth is likely to take the chase right down to the wire.

MILLER TON LEAVES KNIGHTS IN COMMAND
A sixth career century by David Miller helped the VKB Knights ease into a powerful position after two days of action in their Sunfoil Series encounter against the bizhub Highveld Lions at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley on Friday.

Luthando Mnyanda also played a key hand alongside Miller after compiling 81 (154 balls, 14 fours) to give the Central Franchise an 89-run lead heading into the weekend.
The Lions did make a positive start to proceedings on day two with Dwaine Pretorius progressing from his overnight 42 to 76 (133 balls, 11 fours).
He helped his side move from 159 for eight at the start to their eventual total – meaning 97 came with help from the last two wickets as Sean Jamison managed 35.
Mbulelo Budaza was the pick of the bowlers with three for 40.
The Knights lost Grant Mokoena (6) and Keegan Petersen (0) cheaply in the reply, but a 94-run third-wicket stand by Mnyanda and Miller got them back on track.
The latter then added another 103 for the for the fourth wicket with Rudi Second, who had to retire hurt on 28, before becoming the third victim of Nono Pongolo (3/61).
But the runs continued to flow through an unbroken 50-run stand between Patrick Kruger (45) and Werner Coetsee (32), leaving the hosts well-placed at the close.
