It was a deplorable performance and the quicker they forget about this afternoon, the better it will be for their campaign. That's it for this encounter, we have another match to look forward to. Join us for that in about half an hour. See you there! Faf du Plessis: It's good to start the campiagn on a winning note. For me, it's all about winning your home games. Injuries created a bit of a headache. I thought we were a batter short today. We were 10 runs short but the bowlers bowled it smartly and that makes it easy to captain. Last year we just had pace off but this year we have different options in our side. We have a lot more variety in our team this team around. Hardus Viljoen, Man of the Match: It was a great team performance. We thought we are a bit short at the halfway stage but the bowling group executed their skills well. I think, it was my day. It was good to take the wickets of QDK and Malan early. Quinton de Kock: I am not too sure what went wrong. It was a soft wicket. We are a good side and we will bounce back. The wicket became slower as the innings progressed. We thought 170 was par, we were very confident that we will chase it down. 13:13 Local Time: It's been a morning/afternoon to forget for Cape Town Blitz. They came here on the back of a formidable victory against the defending champions - Jozi Stars. And on paper, they looked extremely superior than their counterpart, Paarl Rocks. But things didn't pan out their way at all. Paarl Rocks posted a total of 170 which seemed like around par. Blitz would have backed themselves in the innings break. They rely a lot on their openers QDK and Malan. Both didn't click today and their middle order was lousy against the spinners. The required rate kept soaring and the wickets kept tumbling and eventually Blitz were bowled out for an embarrassing 84. Let me tell you, Blitz are a strong team and the team management should ensure that this performance shouldn't affect their confidence going forward in the competition. Stick around for the post-match presentations. 15.4 Udana to Anrich Nortje, out Caught by Shamsi!! That's it! Home team are off to a winning start! They have thumped Cape Town Blitz mercilessly here at the Paarl. A victory margin of 86 runs is massive in this format. It was short and was aimed on the body, Anrich Nortje top-edged the pull and Shamsi at short fine leg dives, makes it look a little dramatic but completes his job. Anrich Nortje c Shamsi b Udana 4(6) [4s-1] Udana to Anrich Nortje, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!! 15.4 Udana to Anrich Nortje, wide , errs in line, it was down the leg-side and umpire calls it as a wide 15.3 Udana to Anrich Nortje, no run, driven back to the bowler 15.2 Udana to Steyn, 1 run, length delivery around off, Steyn stays put and flat-bats it down the ground to long-off 15.1 Udana to Steyn, no run, full ball wide of off, Steyn pushes it away to cover Isuru Udana [2.0-0-11-0] is back into the attack 14.6 Shamsi to Anrich Nortje, FOUR , wow! That must have taken Shamsi by surprise. Anrich Nortje takes out the reverse sweep and nails it, gets it fine of short third man and collects a boundary 14.5 Shamsi to Anrich Nortje, no run, it clips the pads but it pitched outside leg 14.4 Shamsi to Anrich Nortje, no run, pushes it to the off-side 14.3 Shamsi to Anrich Nortje, no run, blocks it back Anrich Nortje, right handed bat, comes to the crease 14.2 Shamsi to George Linde, out Stumped!! Another wicket for Shamsi and his shoe is out again. Not sure if that is required. He lets out a loud roar, it certainly means a lot to him or he is in a habit of overcelebrating. It spins away from George Linde who was down the track, it goes past the outside edge and the keeper does the rest. George Linde st Mosehle b Shamsi 15(16) [4s-1] Shamsi to George Linde, THAT'S OUT!!
