WATCH: Tim David smashes a monstrous six against Durban Super Giants, sends it out of the park

Quinton de Kock took charge and scored a well-made half-century to help Durban Super Giants win by five wickets at Kingsmead on Thursday night, reviving their SA20 campaign. De Kock displayed incredible bravery by persevering through the agony of a broken finger. Matthew Breetzke scored an unbeaten 48 off 39 balls to help the home team win.

However, Cape Town forced the Super Giants to the penultimate ball before Breetzke hit a six into the crowd to surpass the visitors’ 165/5. Following the international break, the Betway SA20 got off to an exciting start.

On the second ball of the 11th over, Australia star batter Tim David slammed a massive six to the bowling of South Africa’s left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj, which went out of the ground.

Both teams entered the game in severe need of the points, with the Super Giants closing down on the Cape Town franchise for the fifth position by just one point. After being introduced by De Kock, the visitors did not get off to the best of starts as they lost both of their starters, Dewald Brevis (13) and Grant Roelofsen (10) very early.

South African middle-order batter Rassie Van Der Dussenand David together rebuild the MI innings as they quite a few wickets in no time. On the other hand, for DSG, their pick of the bowler was their all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius as he finished his spell with a figure of 2/38.

When the home team’s new Australian recruit Ben McDermott fell early for 5, the run-chase got off to a shaky start. However, the two left-handers De Kock and Breetzke were excellent, partnering for 65 runs to reset the run chase.

The momentum was maintained by a quick 48-run combination between Breetze and Keemo Paul off only 29 deliveries, with the West Indian supplying the decisive 31 runs off just 18 deliveries. Due to a three-wicket burst, Proteas quick Kagiso Rabada gave MI Cape Town some late hope, but ultimately it was in vain as the Super Giants claimed their third victory of the season.
