Watch: Spectator pulls off a incredible one-handed catch in stands during a SA20 League match in Centurion

Pretoria Capitals and Sunrisers Eastern Cape clashed against each other in the 6th match of the SA20 League on Saturday, January 14 at the SuperSport Park, Centurion. Sunrisers won the toss and invited the Capitals to put runs on the scoreboard.

Meanwhile, on the third ball of the 13th over, Brydon Carse bowled a length ball that was sent out of the boundary rope by Will Jacks. The sixes were flying at the Highveld on Saturday. Jacks swiped it high and wide of long-on on one occasion, which went deep into the stands for a maximum and the fans were delighted with the one-handed catch in the crowd.

Brilliant batting performance by the Capitals

Talking about the match, the decision of bowling first proved right for the Sunrisers as they dismissed the first Pretoria’s batter on the score of just 13 runs. But later, the Capitals were nicely set up by Will Jacks, who made a 46-ball 92 and added 111 runs for the third wicket with Thenuis de Bruyn. Jacks was the star, falling for eight short of a hundred. Seven fours and eight sixes in a 46-ball mad-max knock helped them keep the tempo high.

At 158 for 2 in the 14th over, they looked good for a massive total, only to be pegged back by quick losses, including that of Jacks. The Sunrisers were excellent in the death overs. They came back into the game when they took four quick wickets. But the outstanding partnership between Jacks and de Bruyn (42 off 23) took the game away from them. Magala was their best bowler, picking up 2 for 28 runs. A few misfields from Sunrisers didn’t help as well. Capitals would be happy to end the innings at 216 for 6.

Earlier on January 12, both teams clashed against each other. Sunrisers lost the match by 23 runs. Anrich Nortje was the best performer with the ball for the Capitals as he picked up 2 wickets while conceding only 18 runs in his 4 overs quota while from the batting department, it was Phil Salt who played a brilliant inning of 77 runs off just 47 deliveries, which included 11 beautiful fours.
