While the scorecard suggests that the batters dominated proceedings, the death bowling, from both teams, was top notch. That's it from today's game. The action moves to Durban tomorrow, where the home team locks horns against Tshwane Spartans. Join us there. Until then, it's goodbye. Quinton de Kock | Cape Town Blitz captain: This is the first game of the tournament, we just wanted to show other teams what we are. We wanted to stamp our authority. Janneman batted really well. All the batters batted superbly. Still getting used to it (captaincy). I want to lead from the front. Janneman Malan| Player of the Match: It was good fun. Compliment to all my batting partners. It was a flat wicket. Credit to Dale Steyn. He deserves this award for getting three wickets. We have a squad of 15 quality players. We can do well in this competition. It'd have been fun to get that extra run, but not too bothered about it. Temba Bavuma | Jozi Stars captain: They batted really well. We backed our batting line-up to chase down whatever target, but we couldn't close it off in the end. We'll take confidence from this game. I'm enjoying the captaincy, there's no pressure. It's all about having fun and entertaining the people. 20:49 Local Time, 18:49 GMT, 00:19 IST: The Stars, chasing a stiff target, were cruising through - scoring 153 in 14 overs. Bavuma played a cameo and the duo of Reeza Hendricks and van der Dussen stitched a half-ton partnership. However, the Stars capitulated under pressure. Magala bowled a tight 15th over and Steyn followed it up by removing a well-set van der Dussen. Despite the 17th over going for 17 runs, the veteran held his nerve in his final over and nipped out the half-centurion Hendricks for 80. With 27 needed off the last two overs, Magala and Nortje didn't offer any freebies and Cape Town ended up defending their score with ease. 19.6 Anrich Nortje to Harmer, 1 run, short of length delivery, slapped towards extra cover. Cape Town Blitz win by 15 runs 19.5 Anrich Nortje to Harmer, 2 runs, yorker length, Harmer goes hard at it and inside-edges it to fine leg 19.4 Anrich Nortje to Harmer, no run, very full, in-angler, Harmer moves leg-side and fails to make contact after swinging his bat hard 19.3 Anrich Nortje to Harmer, 2 runs, back of a length delivery, dinked towards long-on and Cape Town are happy to concede the second run 19.2 Anrich Nortje to Christian, 1 run, another off-speed delivery as Nortje shortens his length, Christian carves it away but finds deep point who takes it on the bounce 19.1 Anrich Nortje to Christian, 2 runs, slower delivery, full and outside off, Christian picks it late and manages to drag it to deep mid-wicket with a sweep shot. The throw was a weak one Anrich Nortje [2.0-0-33-0] is back into the attack So, this is the equation: 24 runs | 6 balls 18.6 Magala to Harmer, no run, swing and a miss! An in-angler from a short of length and Harmer fails to make connecttion with his attempted heave. Brilliant penultimate over from Magala - conceded just 3 off it 18.5 Magala to Christian, 1 run, fuller than a good length ball, drilled to long-off Simon Harmer, right handed bat, comes to the crease 18.4 Magala to Ryan Rickelton, out Caught by Janneman Malan!! Holed out in the deep! A slower ball from Magala, but it was in the slot to be put away. A fullish delivery on middle and leg and Ryan Rickelton went through with his shot - a heave across the line. Doesn't get the required elevation and offers a straightforward catch to Malan at deep mid-wicket. Ryan Rickelton c Janneman Malan b Magala 1(2) Magala to Ryan Rickelton, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!! 18.3 Magala to Christian, 1 run, 109.7kph, slower ball from a back of a length, Christian moves leg-side and slaps it over the covers. Just a single 18.2 Magala to Christian, no run, pacy bumper at 132.1kph, angled in and cramps the batsman for room, Christian sways away and lets it go through to the keeper Next
