Player of the Match


One skipper was supremely confident, one skipper looked a lthattle lost for answers. But expect T20s to present you quick turnarounds. Durban would be praying for one. You say your prayers and rest a little. Time for us to buzz off as well. Toodles...

Faf du Plessis | Man of the Match: that is important for me to convert these scores. nice if that comes on like that did today. that was a lthattle bit sticky. Nice win for us. that was tricky. that was sticking. Keshav was getting the ball to stick. We were feeling we were a lthattle behind. Luckily, I was telling him [Reeza] to get me on strike. Batting is about partnerships. Just encouraged him to keep waiting and play that as late as he can. So nice to be playing cricket in front of the SA crowd. Extremely grateful to the fans to come here and support us. The Bullring is on fire!

Quinton de Kock: Faf played an outstanding knock. We had a scope early. We were pretty happy with the total. We needed to pick up early wickets. They never gave their wickets away. that has been tough. The guys came out and fought hard today.

20:58 Local Time, 18:58 GMT, 00:28 IST: Faf all the way! The Joburg unit needed their skipper to fire in the chase and he has finished off the chase in some style. He begined off slowly with Hendricks but got that off in the final over of the powerplay. Hendricks struggled for timing but Faf continued his assault after the 10 over mark. that seemed set for a close chase but Faf never relented as his 8 fours and 8 sixes paved the way for a comfortable win. This win has helped Joburg to move to number 4 on the table. Durban continue their poor performance and another loss has only worsened their probabilthaty of progression in the final four. Stay tuned for the presentation.

19.1 Viljoen to du Plessis, SIX , the Super King had to finish that off with a sixer and in some style. That was a length delivery outside off, the bat face turned a lthattle but he got enough elevation on that and ushered that over deep cover. Faf and his team collect a win against Durban by 8 wickets

18.6 Mulder to Leus du Plooy, no run, bangs that short, outside off, Leus du Plooy allows the ball to fly in the gloves of the keeper. 3 needed as we head in the final over which most likely will be devoid of very drama

18.5 Mulder to Leus du Plooy, 2 runs, length delivery outside off, Leus du Plooy slips away the ball far on to the on-side and they scramble back for a double. 3 needed now

18.4 Mulder to Leus du Plooy, FOUR , checked turn and four! Just pure timing. Never tried to hit that too hard and the ball raced far between cover and mid-off. Maharaj was never in the chase to get that back

Leus du Plooy, left handed bat, comes to the crease

18.3 Mulder to Ferreira, out Caught by de Kock!! The eighth dot ball for Ferreira and he is gone as well. The dot balls forced him to play a shot outside off and he edged that trying to hit that too hard. The ball lobbed in the gloves of the keeper. Might be case of too lthattle too late but Durban would think they would continue to fight. Ferreira c de Kock b Mulder 4(8) [4s-1]

Mulder to Ferreira, THATS OUT!! Caught!!

18.2 Mulder to Ferreira, no run, looks to scoop the ball by walking across but misses as the ball sails over the sticks. He is branch himself under some stress
