PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Rilee Rossouw(PC) No. I am unable to comment on that. He is a very seasoned umpire, and I do apologize if the situation got out of hand [in reference to his irritation about a non-wide with Marais Erasmus]. There were some cracks and a lot of uneven bounce, and we are all fairly happy with how things turned out in the end. Let’s be honest, this season hasn’t been the best for me, but this game is a step on the right way. Let’s hope I can deliver on the job end.

Rashid Khan(MICT): A considerable effort was made. Excellent cricket match; we continued to struggle in the same areas as we had in the previous games today. We were probably 15 to 20 runs short. On this track, 180 was a respectable total, and the chasing was strong. The bowlers who persevered till the very last ball deserve praise. With the new guys, it was going to take some time. Even though I am aware that our team was the finest in the field, sometimes things just don’t work out. Cannot change it; must put in significant effort and maintain faith. It will take a year or two, but after that, things will only get better. Wait until the right moment, keep working hard, and return better the following year.

Wayne Parnell(PC): The team’s primary objective is to succeed. There was some debate about whether to proceed or wait when there were 14 runs. The appearance of Arna was beneficial. I can’t say too much at this time because it’s still painful, but we’ll get a scan tomorrow and go day by day [with his groin]. We entered the tournament with the idea that we would win every game. We have lost two, but we still have two critical games left to qualify. Going into the semifinal, we need to gain some momentum. I believe we have performed admirably. Both with the bat and the ball, we have gotten off to strong starts. As a captain, I am proud of how we have responded when under pressure. This team’s primary character never loses hope and adopts a never-say-die mentality.

“What a thrilling conclusion to Centurion. There were 19 wickets taken, several standout performances, and the outcome was decided by the last delivery. How crucial could a few more runs have been? MI will regret their batting collapse, which included being bowled out with a few deliveries to spare. Capitals are certain of finishing first and advancing to the knockout rounds, but highly anticipated MICT must start over from scratch until the next year. So Pretoria eliminates MICT with this victory? No, if a lot of things go their way, they still have a mathematically slim chance. Before the final man, the game swung like a crazy pendulum in both directions. Joshua Little managed it while Parnell, who was hurt, was on the other end. Kusal Mendis ignited the chase, but three quick wickets in 7 balls dragged MICT back. Then Rossouw threatened to destroy everything, but MI once more retaliated with wickets. Odean Smith promptly took two wickets and brought it back when Muthusamy appeared to have it in the bag. Following a pivotal six in the penultimate over, Muthusamy fell in the last over, leaving the game wide open. Nortje then came out and struck two boundaries before he was out. Parnell was having trouble even finishing an easy single when Joshua Little entered the game and finished the job”.
