Opener Henry Davids and David Wiese slammed half-centuries to power Titans to 163 for five against Sydney Sixers in the second semi-final of the Champions League Twenty20 on Friday.

Davids hit three fours and sixes apiece in his 44-ball 59 before Wiese hammered a 28-ball 61 with four sixes and six fours against their Aussie rivals missing the services of all-rounder Shane Watson, recalled home to join the Test preparations.

The Wiese blitzkreig  gave Titans the much-needed momentum towards the end and helped them post a challenging total. The winners will face Highveld Lions in the final.

However, unlike Kingsmead on Thursday, Sixers would fancy their chances on a far better batting conditions at the Centurion.

Brief scores: Titans: 163/5 in 20 overs (H Davids 59no, D Wiese 61, M Starc 2/33
