Dewald Brevis smashed the six without looking during Cape Town Town’s 19th innings. Daryn Dupavilion bowled a long delivery, which Brevis hit miles high in the air for a six. He did not look where the ball went after taking the shot.

Ryan Rickelton scored an impressive 90 runs off 45 balls with the help of 10 boundaries and five sixes. Captain Kieron Pollard chipped in with a quick cameo to help the team finish with a good total. Pollard scored 27 runs off seven deliveries, including two fours and three sixes.

Pretoria Capitals captain Wayne Parnell took three wickets but gave away 57 runs in his four-over spell. Daryn Dupavillon secured a wicket for 73 runs in his total quota. Will Jacks proved to be the Capitals’ best bowler, conceding just 24 runs in his four overs.

MICT dominated early in the second innings, restricting the Capitals to 42/6 in 5.4 overs. However, Kyle Verreynne showed resilience and reduced the margin of defeat. Verreynne added an unbeaten 85-run partnership with Adil Rashid for the ninth wicket of the chase.

Verreynne scored a remarkable unbeaten innings of 116 off 52 balls, with seven fours and nine sixes. Despite Verreynne’s excellent effort, the Pretoria Capitals managed to score 214/8 in 20 overs. However, the Capitals denied MI Cape Town a bonus point victory.

MI Cape Town secured third position in the 6-team points table with 13 points. Meanwhile, the Pretoria Capitals are bottom with 10 points. The top three teams in the table have already qualified for the playoffs, leaving fourth place open for dispute.

It was incredible – Dewald Brevis

In a mid-match conversation with AB de Villiers, Dewald Brevis expressed his delight at regaining form and acknowledged captain Kieron Pollard’s support during his poor spell with the bat in SA20.

“This has been an interesting time. First of all I have to thank God for this. At the end of the tunnel there is light. Grateful to contribute to the team and have a great score,” Brevis said.

“[on batting with Pollard] It was incredible. He told me to wait after a slower ball, I took one and hit it. That gave us the impetus. I really enjoyed being there in front of my home crowd. I like it here. I support us at all times and we will give everything,” he added.
