So, that wraps up our coverage of this game. We will be back tomorrow with more cricketing actions from around the world and across formats. Signing off now is Ayan Chatterjee on behalf of my co-commentator Saptak Sanyal alongside scorer/analyst Raju Khariya. Stay safe, happy, and cool. Goodnight and CHEERS!   
Heinrich Klaasen(Player of the Match)- "The wicket was little bit up and down and it was not easy. I think we should be proud of us to find boundaries in this wicket. It was not easy. I was trying to get 8 runs per over. I think taking the extra runs at times has helped us to post a good total. You have to make sure taking that bowler rightly on that time.

 Before this competition, I worked on my game plans and I improved on playing the arm balls. I have also worked on my fitness and that has helped me. I am keeping my feet grounded."
Player of the Match- Heinrich Klaasen
Keshav Maharaj (Durban's Super Giants Captain): "Yes, it was a catch 22 situation. The wicket was dry and Klaasen helped us get to a good competitive score. Yes, home advantage is good for us. We need to make this ground a fortress and that helps us going forward.

We felt 140 would be a good score on this wicket. It was too much for them. The bowlers did well and bowled in the right areas.

We knew with the nature of wicket, that the collapse could happen. I think it was about sticking to basics and getting the job done in the end.

I am working hard and it's coming off well from my hand.

Yes, 3 from 3 is exciting for us. We need to keep it going and stick to the basics that we have created. Hope to do well in the coming games."    
Faf du Plessis(Joburg Super Kings Captain)- "I don't think it was a disadvantage to bat in the second innings. Heinrich Klaasen is one of the best in the country right now and he has batted superbly.

We thought something close to 140 is par and restricting them to 130 would have been good for us. If you bowl well through the plans, it is not tough to restrict the boundaries in this wicket. 

You need someone to play a good innings and I think our guys will step up. We have to work on a few things, we have to fix a few areas. When you look back, you can't really do good. I'm a guy who doesn't like to look back. Hopefully we will comeback stronger."
