Easterns clinch first crown
SuperSport Series final, Benoni: Easterns (238 & 472) beat Western Province (309 & 128) by 273 runs

All-rounder Andrew Hall took five wickets as unfancied Easterns secured their first ever South African domestic title, beating Western Province by 273 runs in the final.

Hall, who played two Tests for his country last season, returned figures of five for 22 in the second innings, taking his match haul to 11 for 99.

And left-arm spinner Ant Botha took three wickets on the final afternoon as a WP line-up featuring eight current or former internationals crumbled to 128 all out.

Opener Herschelle Gibbs top-scored with 33 in a second-wicket partnership of 67 with skipper Gary Kirsten, following the early dismissal of Graeme Smith for three.

But both men fell in successive openers to the Easterns captain, former international spinner Derek Crookes.

And, unlike the home side's recovery from 27 for five on the first day, there was no way back for Western Province, despite Ashwell Prince's three-hour unbeaten 26.
