PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Aiden Markram(C)(SEC) For us, that was a wonderful day. For us, getting here was difficult. Today, we gave it our all, and thankfully it worked out for us. Certainly in the T20 format. I told a few individuals I never thought I’d reach the three-mark figure, especially batting at 4. The pitch was excellent, and the ball flew, but ultimately, the victory is what counts. In the end, it was close, and I was a little anxious. The plans are to the lads’ credit. We can work towards execution. Rest now and make some plans for tomorrow. Joburg is a little bit different from this place. We have some plans, which we aim to carry out there.

Faf du Plessis(JSK): Up until the last four overs, when we bowled maybe six beamers, things were going exceptionally well. Hendricks demonstrated his abilities while dealing with a hammy that was having trouble. Disappointing. Even if it doesn’t work in major games, cricket is where anything may happen. We made several excellent wicket plays. The minor details in the back indicate that we were a little off. It got a touch fuller than necessary and the hands started to get a little slick. Due to the large number of yellow jerseys present where we are playing in Pretoria, I would like to thank them.

“Although the scoreboard may indicate otherwise, the game wasn’t particularly close. At the very end, things did start to get a little more interesting, but JSK found it too difficult and lost by 14 runs. The first ball of the innings saw Faf leave, and Coetzee, who had been moved up the order, only made matters worse for his team as he battled to find his rhythm and died under duress. Du Plooy and JSK were already looking down the barrel when they both left for a duck. But when Hendricks entered the room, he appeared confident right away. Wade stood by him, and together they stitched a solid stand, but the latter’s knock was barely run-a-ball and far below the required rate. After Wade left, Ferreira entered and was dangerous during his brief appearance, but van der Merwe ended his innings. For a significant portion of the game, SEC’s disciplined bowling ensured that the opposition was constantly under pressure. Shepherd played a furious knockdown of the order, but they were still unsuccessful. With a superb hundred earlier, Markram set the tone, and his bowlers were able to hold off the huge total. Hendricks deserves special recognition since despite his best efforts, the middle order couldn’t fully back him. SEC has qualified for the finals as a result”.
