There were smiles for different reasons at the end of the Nashua Dolphins-Highveld Lions Standard Bank Pro20 Series game at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Sunday.
The first was obvious - the Dolphins had easily beaten the Lions by eight wickets and secured home semi-final advantage in the two-leg affair, while the second was for the fact that the local team had avoided being the No. 1 side on the final round robin league table.
That was the second reason for the huge smiles on the faces of the KwaZulu-Natal cricket officials.
"This means that we will play on Friday and not Wednesday. That suits us as Sanath Jayasuriya will be available for the first leg of the semi-final on Friday against the Nashua Cape Cobras," said Jay Naidoo.
"If we had finished on top of the table we would have missed the opportunity of having Sanath for the two-leg semis. He will arrive here on Wednesday morning and it would have been difficult pressing him into action soon after landing from a long flight from Sri Lanka."
The Dolphins will play the Nashua Cape Cobras on Friday at Sahara Park Newlands and their second leg game is scheduled for Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Sunda, at 2.30pm.
