swept past fine leg, and that brings a demolition from Pretoria to an end. They win with over a dozen overs to spare!
Capitals won by 8 wickets (with 74 balls remaining)
Well, that's it from us today, on a day Pretoria Capitals cruised to a huge win over Durban Super Giants, and picked up a bonus point along the way. See you again tomorrow!
"It worked out nicely," says a beaming Wayne Parnell, with a considerable degree of understatement. "It is difficult adjusting to the new surface, but we've got plenty of expeirence, both local and international. It's about sharing informationa nd trying to execute. For us it's about backing everyone, playing a positive brand of cricket and entertaining people."
Senuran Muthusamy is the Player of the Match. "Just really grateful it came off for me," he says. "These conditions allowed for an extra spinner which opened up an opportunity for me. The surface was a bit two-paced. I don't think it was an 80-all out wicket, more of a 130-140 wicket."
"Bad execution with the bat," says Quinton de Kock. "We just weren't good enough. It's not a game we should dwell too much on. We're going to need to look past this and carry on."
PC gone mad, is all I can say after this game tonight. A sensational bowling performance and absolutely no mucking about with the bat at all. Kyle Mayers bowled an eventful first over but that's about as good as it got for the poor Super Giants, who found themselves cut down to size today.
Afeef: "Seems like Rossouw will not be required to bat today" Very nearly wasn't!
full and fast. Timed to point, who fields well
turns it round the corner for a single to level the scores
AdiCan: "As a non-South African, I can confirm that this league has me hooked just like IPL. I will be following this regularly. On the same note, I love this bonus point concept. Wish IPL brings it in from this year as well."
straight-bat pull to long-on
James : "I think Will Jacks has a date!" He'll be early for it at this rate
it was there for the finishing, but Jacks holes out this time to cow corner. Another one short of a length, but Jacks didn't middle one for once. Departs, but not before he's single-handedly made a mockery of this chase
defended to mid-off
long hop that he deposits over square leg for another colossal six. This isn't good enough from the spinner, and Jacks in this form was never going to miss out
nudged away for a single
clipped into the onside, and that brings up Will Jacks half-century. It came in just 22 balls. Completely removed any jeopardy after the first ball wicket
long hop, tried to smash it away through the onside but gets an under edge
low full toss, timed through to square leg. He even manages to keep the strike
back of a length, smashed majestically over midwicket for a huge six. This is ending in a huge hurry
hits it through the line, mistimed loft over mid-on that the fielder pulls back
With that sort of rampage, let's welcome Danyal back!
this is brutal! Good length ball angling into middle. Shuffles onto the back foot and clips it through to midwicket!
even better! Good length ball outside off, and Jacks is really enjoying the pace. Driven in front of square, good extension through the arms
flies away! Jacks is in a hurry. Shortish ball around leg, but Jacks is a tall man who has no trouble swiveling and flicking it for six
length ball angling into his pads. Wants to work it leg side. Hits his pad instead
full on middle, and flicked to deep midwicket's left. Maharaj cleans up, throws it in, could've been dangerous if it was a direct hit
glorious! Holder goes full, Jacks goes up and over. As simple as that. Picture-perfect shot, high-elbow and all.
full ball on off. Defended to the off side and says no to the single
