MARITZBURG College won their second Pro20 KZN cricket final in Durban yesterday against Kearsney. They had to dig deep as the win came with eight balls to spare.

Batting first, Kearsney made a moderate 109 for seven with James Lambert top-scoring 34 not out in 32 balls. Reagan Smith and Tim Guise-Brown both took two wickets.
