PLAYER OF THE MATCH: James Neesham(Pretoria Capitals) When Faf was dismissed, it was more luck than skill; the wicket shifted the momentum in our favor, and we won. Things like that do occur, and it is an honor to be bowling behind our fantastic new-ball attack. I placed my hands on the bat’s edge after spotting its edge (on the catch). We played way too aggressively last night, which made us feel bad, but returning after only a 12-hour break gave us an advantage. As I already mentioned, a lot of things worked out for us today.

Faf du Plessis(JSK): It’s regrettable because this isn’t the first time it’s happened; the best way to explain it is with lousy batting. Aggressiveness and shrewd batting must both be present at the same time. The fundamentals of T20 involve rebuilding after a wicket is lost. When we don’t bat well, we lose a lot of wickets in clusters. On this wicket, it’s pretty difficult to hold a score of about 100. With me at three, Janemann Malan and Reeza Hendricks were debating who should go first. I had played at three a lot and thought it was appropriate for me to go first. We offered them three games, which was a good opportunity, but they didn’t change. We were disappointed that after that start, we didn’t obtain a big score for the franchise.

Wayne Parnell(PC): Because Faf was so aggressive, I was unable to carry out my intentions, but that is how cricket is. To bowl them out for 120 after that 70-point powerplay was incredible. Given that clubs have triumphed on their own fields, obtaining the bonus point might be highly advantageous. Anrich Nortje is a terrific addition to our unit since he strives for excellence, and I’m glad to have him on the squad. It was encouraging to see that Salty wanted to win the game the way he did. We do tend to lose wickets when we play that style, but if they do get in, they can score heavily and quickly as well. It’s encouraging to see such a large crowd on a Wednesday night, and we hope they will continue to support us.

“Only the first six overs of batting by Johannesburg did the game continue as a contest. They appeared to be on track for a large total at 70 for 2 and with Faf du Plessis in top form, but what happened next was disastrous. They lost from 70 for 2 to 78 for 7, which effectively ended the match. The Capitals got off to a fast start in their 123-run chase thanks to their openers. They did lose a few wickets, but Phil Salt masterfully anchored the chase, and they eventually reached their destination with plenty of time and wickets remaining”.

Lets have a look at the previous match between Joburg Super Kings and Pretoria Capitals in which Super Kings won by six runs. It was really thrilling win!
