Stanbic T20 played in Harare: Southern Rocks (114/8) lost to Matabeleland Tuskers (106/1) by 20 runs (Duckworth-Lewis).
Matabeleland Tuskers continued their winning streak with a third successive victory, this time at the expense of the hapless Southern Rocks team.

2nd Stanbic T20 played at Harare Sports Club: Matabeleland Tuskers 123/3 beat Mashonaland Eagles 120/8
This was another one-sided match with the team batting second winning easily. Mashonaland Eagles batted poorly, and good batting by Paul Horton and Charles Coventry took Matabeleland Tuskers home with more than three overs to spare.
The opening match of the series failed to excite the crowd, as Mid-West Rhinos failed to produce a competitive total and Mountaineers were never stretched as they recorded a straight-forward victory by six wickets.
