The Titans play in the Sunfoil Series first class competition (where they were the 2015-16 champions), the Momentum One Day Cup, and Ram Slam T20 Challenge. They have been Supersport Series and MiWay T20 Challenge champions in the past, and had qualified to take part in the Champions League Twenty20 where they narrowly lost to the Sydney Sixers at SuperSport Park.
The Titans were also Momentum One Day Cup champions in the 2014/15 season, beating the Cape Cobras in the final.
Since the franchise system was introduced in South African domestic cricket, the Titans have been the most successful, winning 18 trophies.
Champions League T20Edit
Titans played very well in their first CLT20 and qualified for the semi-finals, where the Sydney Sixers nailed a win off the last ball in front of a massive crowd at SuperSport Park, Centurion. In the 2013 edition, they played well in the group stage, winning 2 matches and facing defeat in 2, but failed to qualify at the expense of T&T and the Chennai Super Kings.
