Quinton de Kock exploded out of his quiet season with a blistering 83 off 51 balls, propelling Durban’s Super Giants to the top of the SA20 table after defeating Paarl Royals at Boland Park.

De Kock’s Batting Masterclass:

Batting in an unusual No. 4 position, De Kock found a partner in Jon-Jon Smuts (52) as the duo stitched together a rapid 118-run partnership off just 82 balls. Heinrich Klaasen added a late cameo of 30 not out off 9 deliveries to boost DSG’s total to a commanding 190/3.

Royals’ Chase Fizzles:

Despite a positive start, the Royals’ chase lost momentum after Jason Roy’s dismissal. David Miller’s return couldn’t spark a revival, and only Jos Buttler (44 off 36) offered some resistance before being caught off Keshav Maharaj’s bowling (2/24).

Super Giants Bowling Reigns Supreme:

Marcus Stoinis (3/24) and Reece Topley (2/27) kept the Royals’ batsmen in check, restricting them to 133 all out.

DSG Top the Standings:

This emphatic victory puts DSG atop the SA20 table with 23 points, leaving the Royals with 22 in second place.
