So, that ends our coverage of this fixture from SA20 2024. We will be back tomorrow with more cricketing actions from around the globe and across formats. For now, this is Ayan Chatterjee signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Deepak Prakash alongside scorer/analysts Paras Yadav and Yogesh Kumar. Stay safe, happy, and cool. Goodnight and CHEERS!  
JJ Smuts (Player of the Match): "Yeah, look, we thought it was going to be a pretty good wicket. Not as good as that, to be honest, but I thought today was a real team performance. The opening partnership really set the platform for us, and a bit of luck went my way today. And then I think also the way we finished the innings, too, Nicky P and Klassen also got us to 225.  

I thought, I know this wicket pretty well. Spent a lot of the time playing on this wicket. So I thought it kind of suited me today to play knowing exactly where the pockets are. 

I think if you looked at it today, the way when batters get in, even the likes of Stubbs and Tom Abell when they get going, it's very difficult to defend."

Player of the Match: JJ Smuts
Keshav Maharaj (Durban's Super Giants Captain): "It was brilliant and clinical display today. The energy was visible today in the field. The openers set it up and Smuts did well and Nicky P finished things off at the end. All the bowlers did their job. We were clinical.

Richard was magnificent with the ball and got off the flight the other day. The crowds were fantastic and the drums were beating heavily.

So, thanks for the crowd support and supporting SA20 as a whole.

 Nice to get off to a good start and get the wins and we would like to carry on the momentum in the coming games."   
Aiden Markram (Sunrisers Eastern Cape Captain): "Yeah, it was a good game. I think the general cricket lover would have appreciated that game. So nice to be a part of that. Unfortunately, not quite near our best tonight, but we'll take a few positives we can and work on the things that we need. 

I think, each sort of facet of the game with the ball and each sort of facet of the game with the bat. There's an overall two where we probably could have been better from an execution point of view, but that happens first game together as a team, and hopefully from here we can be a better team.  

Yeah, it's quite frightening what guys can do these days, and they train it. So great to see it come off for him (Tom Abell). It's entertainment for all the viewers, ultimately, at the end of the day. 

If you're not going to take wickets regularly, they're probably going to hurt you. But the wicket played really well and they batted really well. They put our bad balls away, kept us under pressure, and it was hard to sort of get any momentum with the ball in."
Time for the post-match presentation...
12:36 AM IST, 9:06 PM Local Time: So, a comfortable win in the end for Durban's Super Giants as they make it two wins out of two games in SA 20 2024 with a 35-run win over the hosts and defending champions Sunrisers Eastern Cape. The Super Giants deserved the win and played better than their opponents in all facets of the game.  

Chasing a mammoth target of 226 for the win, Sunrisers Eastern Cape lost both their openers cheaply. Tom Abell played a blinder for the Sunrisers with his 65 off 36 balls. Skipper Aiden Markram looked good for his 29 off 21 balls. Tristan Stubbs came later on and entertained everyone with his 55 off 26 balls. But the others fell under pressure as Sunrisers ended with 190/9 in 20 overs. 8 extras given by the fielding side. 

The bowlers did their job for the Super Giants. Richard Gleeson got a couple of wickets to his name alongside JJ Smuts and Dwaine Pretorius in the end. A wicket to Reece Topley and Keshav Maharaj as well. Wiaan Mulder and Keemo Paul returned wicketless. 

Earlier in the game, Durban's Super Giants won the toss and elected to bat first and put on a batting masterclass. Quinton de Kock looked good for his 23 off 16 balls while Matthew Breetzke scored a good looking 43 off 29 balls. But it was the JJ Smuts show as the right-hander powered his way to 75 off 38 balls against his former club. The finishing touches were given by Nicholas Pooran as he scored an unbeaten 60* off 31 balls. Heinrich Klaasen came at the end and scored 13* off 6 balls. 11 extras were given by the fielding side as the Super Giants ended with 225/3 in 20 overs. 

A couple of wickets for Daniel Worrall and a wicket for Marco Jansen. Liam Dawson bowled an economical spell of 27 runs in 4 overs. The rest of the bowlers went for plenty of runs today as it was a bad day at the office for Sunrisers Eastern Cape. 

So, a win for Durban's Super Giants by 35 runs as they make it two wins out of two games to top the points table at this stage. Stay tuned for the presentations.

19.6 D Pretorius to O Baartman
1 Back of a length delivery angling into the batter. Baartman hoicks across the line of the ball and gets the inside edge of the bat onto the body for a single. Durban's Super Giants win by 35 runs, and they make it two in two. 
19.5 D Pretorius to D Worrall
W CAUGHT! Another nail in the coffin! Full and just outside off. Worrall opens the face of the bat and looks to squeeze it over the short third man but ends up slicing it straight on the throat of Topley at short third man, who takes it safely. 
19.4 D Pretorius to D Worrall
0 Full and outside off. Worrall flashes at it but misses.
