Sunrisers Eastern Cape Beat Durban Supergiants In A One-Sided Encounter
Choosing to bat after winning the toss, Sunrisers Eastern Cape suffered an early setback with the dismissal of Dawid Malan in the second over. However, Jordan Hermann and Tom Abell built a solid partnership, providing a strong foundation for the team in the final match.
Tristan Stubbs (56*) scored a rapid fifty, while skipper Aiden Markram (42*) contributed a crucial cameo, guiding the team past the 200-run milestone in the first innings. Durban Super Giants captain Keshav Maharaj secured two wickets for 33 runs in his four-over spell.
The Keshav Maharaj-led side experienced a collapse during the powerplay while chasing. They lost three wickets for just seven runs in 3.4 overs. DSG wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock was dismissed for only three runs off seven balls by Daniel Worrall in the third over.
Ottneil Baartman dismissed the in-form Heinrich Klaasen for a golden duck in the 11th over of the Durban Super Giants’ innings. Wiaan Mulder top-scored with 38 runs off 22 deliveries. Despite his efforts, Durban Super Giants were bundled out for just 115 runs in 17 overs.
Aiden Markram’s team earned just one point from their first two matches. However, they lost only one more game to finish atop the league stage. The Sunrisers continued their winning streak with a dominant performance in the first Qualifier and secured a finals berth.
