Player of the Match: Kusal Mendis(PC) I’m pleased with my innings. The powerplay gave us a strong start, and we built the innings from there. Everyone was trying to score runs, so we quickly reached 200. The group is integrating well, is familiar with one another’s styles of play, and is eager for tomorrow’s match.

David Miller(PR): We obviously hoped to start the game strongly and win, but we found ourselves in a tough spot, so it’s fantastic to qualify. They batted quite well, but there were times when our bowling was subpar. We have game-changers throughout; Jos batted responsibly tonight and displayed his expertise. Tomorrow, we need to work as a team and provide a strong performance. This wasn’t a terrific game despite the different circumstances; tomorrow is a new game, and we’ll be ready for it.

Theunis de Bruyn(PC): Winning is enjoyable. Although we are pleased to be in the semifinal, we would have preferred to keep them out and play Durban instead. The enthusiasm will carry over to tomorrow’s game. These postseason games are unique, therefore the lads must put in a special effort. Since replacing Jacks, Mendis has been performing brilliantly, and perhaps he will continue to do so tomorrow.

“Throughout the game, there were a few oddball incidents, but Paarl ended up becoming the fourth team to qualify. Without Buttler, they would not have been able to surpass the required number of 163 to advance to the next round. Additionally, Pretoria’s bad bowling decisions helped Paarl to escape from custody. When Pretoria scored 226 in the first innings, they were able to put Paarl beyond reach. Paarl got off to a bad start and dropped a few wickets. Morgan appeared in a cameo, and Buttler appeared unwell. Buttler was able to assist his squad in reaching 163 just in time. The first semi-final between these two teams will take place tomorrow”.
