So that marks the end of our coverage from the 6th match of SA20 2024 betwee Paarl Royals and Pretoria Capitals. Paarl Royals won the nail-biter by just 10 runs. For now, this is the duo of Saptak Sanyal and Ayan Chatterjee signing off alongside our scorer Paras Yadav. Good Night!
Lungi Ngidi (Player of the Match): "Yes, look the batters did well to set the game for us. Dave and Mitch batted well. I know my lines and lengths and did the job for my team.

It was nerve wracking when Rilee was batting out there, but held my nerves.

Shane Bond told me to bowl straight and bowl slower balls and do the job for my team. I kept it simple out there and got the job done.

I am a PAARL boy now and will help them win the trophy if I can. Unfortunate it had to come at my home ground, but then so be it. Happy to win the game for PAARL Royals in the end."   
Lungi Ngidi is the Player of the Match. 
David Miller(Paarl Royals Captain)- "We posted good score on the board. We got wickets at the start and then we leaked runs in the powerplay but that's the nature of the game. The pitch was little bit touch slower and it probably did get better. We were really happy with the total we posted. 

I am very happy that we have experienced players like Buttler in the line up. We take advice from Jos whenever needed and then our bowlers have executed really well. We are happy because we got what we asked for."
Jimmy Neesham (Pretoria Capitals Captain): "First of all, thanks to the Pretoria Crowd for coming out here and supporting here. It was a tough wicket to bowl. The guys tried hard and David Miller was special for them. We gave away 10 extra runs, but we came out there and gave a good effort out there.

It was a collective effort out there and some things come off and some don't. On another day, we could have won this game. 100% confident that we can come back in the tournament. We played well today by and large.

We have to continue the good work and brush up the ideas and areas to work on and get better in the next game. That's what we have to do. I am confident we can bounce back."
