The Guyanese were unsuccessful in defending a target score of 149, as half-centuries from Richard Cameron and Lions captain Alviro Petersen led the South African side to victory with 29 balls to spare in the 14th match of the competition at the Wanderers.
Cameron struck five fours and six sixes in a List-A Twenty20 career-best, undefeated 78 from 42 balls, and Petersen hit six fours and two sixes in an unbeaten 57 from 38 balls.
  They added a Lions T20  record 133 – unbroken – for the  second wicket. The result condemned the Guyanese to remain at the bottom of the five-team ladder in Group-B with no points from their three matches, after they lost their opening match against Royal Challengers Bangalore by the same margin last Sunday at SuperSport Park, and then suffered a 31-run defeat to the Mumbai Indians last Thursday at Kingsmead.
Guyana face South Australia Redbacks at the Wanderers in their final group match tomorrow the same day that  the Lions will meet Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match. (CMC)
