Defending champions the Titans have to win their next match if they hope to earn a berth in the Standard Bank Pro20 semifinals set for February 13.

But should they lose against the Diamond Eagles in their last encounter at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday, their hopes of ending in the top-four bracket will be shattered.

On Friday, the Titans suffered a huge blow when their clash against arch-rivals the Highveld Lions was abandoned without a ball being bowled in Johannesburg due to a waterlogged pitch.

On Sunday they went on to lose by 16 runs to log leaders the Dolphins in Durban.

Now, by hook or crook, they need a victory with a bonus point against the consistent Eagles at home to get a place in the semis.

On the other hand, they will be crossing fingers for their neighbours the Lions to beat the Cobras whom they hosts at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom tomorrow.

The Titans are second from bottom of the table with four points from four games, trailing the fourth-placed Cobras by four points from the same number of games.

The Dolphins have already qualified for the semis after collecting 11 points from four games.

They meet the Lions in the last game of the league stage in Durban on Sunday.

The second-placed Warriors have garnered nine points, a point ahead of the third-placed Eagles from three games each.
