Durban’s Super Giants (DSG) roared back to winning ways with a dominant 36-run bonus-point victory over MI Cape Town (MICT) at Newlands on Tuesday. The triumph catapults them back into second place on the SA20 table.

Stuttering Start, Steady Rebuild:

DSG stumbled initially, losing Quinton de Kock and Tony de Zorzi in the first few overs. However, a gritty 43-run partnership between Matthew Breetzke (48) and Jon Jon Smuts steadied the ship.

Mulder’s Late Surge, Kaber’s Grip:

Wiaan Mulder’s explosive 20-ball 38 not out propelled DSG to a respectable 157/6. Meanwhile, MICT’s Thomas Kaber kept things tight with 2/20, restricting DSG’s late flourish.

MICT’s Fading Hope:

MICT’s chase lacked momentum, with only Sam Curran (38) and Dewald Brevis (21) offering a flicker of hope. Noor Ahmad and Marcus Stoinis, DSG’s new signings, proved lethal, claiming 3 wickets each, effectively shutting down MICT for 121/9.

What’s Next?

DSG will look to build on this win, while MICT faces a long wait before their next match against Sunrisers Eastern Cape.

Player of the Match: George Linde (2/15)
