Player of The Match: Heinrich Klaasen(DSG) We discussed bringing Keemo in to gain some traction. It’s the first time I’ve hit a 19-ball fifty in Durban in a long time, so it gives me a lot of confidence. It was nice to see such a large crowd in Kingsmead after a long time.

David Miller(Paarl Royals): We expected it to be slow, but it remained a good wicket. We were under pressure in the PP, but Morgs and Dane Vilas demonstrated that collaboration is essential. Sadly, we lost a few too many wickets. We were deviating from our plans today and couldn’t really stop them. They deserve credit for putting us under pressure. It appeared to be a very good wicket, and we were ready to fight. Morgs and Vilas fought hard in the middle.

Quinton de Kock(DSG): That makes me very happy. We just had to keep the pressure on them with the ball because of our batting momentum. We were at ease because anything could happen on this pitch. Morgan and Vilas both batted extremely well. Morgan’s runout was a watershed moment for us. Exciting and exhausting all at the same time(Regarding the tournament’s upcoming games).

“The Super Giants of Durban now share third place on the points table with the Pretoria Capitals. The Paarl Royals were in the chase until Eoin Morgan came in, but other than him, there was little from the other batters. Dane Vilas did score 44 runs on 30 balls, but he struggled with his timing for much of the game. Morgan, on the other hand, played brilliantly for his 37-ball 64. He got two fours and five sixes, but not enough support. Dwaine Pretorius and Reece Topley each took five wickets to stymie Royal’s chase. Prenelan Subrayen was outstanding in his two overs, conceding only ten runs and dismissing Jason Roy. The home crowd was overjoyed with the outcome. The Royals kept the Super Giants at bay, and how important were the four sixes off the final over in Durban’s batting effort? The Royals’ chase didn’t go as planned, but Morgan and Vilas turned it around brilliantly with a 114-run stand. Things could have been different in the chase if it hadn’t been for Morgan’s runout, as Durban struggled to stop the run flow. Topley and Pretorius combined for five wickets, putting the brakes on the game at crucial times”.
