SA20 2024 Points Table: Updated Standings: Durban Super Giants locked horns with Paarl Royals in match number 22 of the ongoing SA20 2024. Durban has given twin setbacks to the Paarl following two big defeats in the span of three days. Fixture number 22 saw Durban Super Giants win the game by a mammoth 125 runs against Paarl Royals at the Kingsmed, Durban.

After opting to bat first, Durban Super Giants went on a run-scoring spree right from the ball one. Though they suffered breakthroughs consistently, the runs never stopped ticking the scoreboard.

It was opener Matthew Breetzke, who set the tone for the game with his sensational 43-ball 73 run innings following which the other batters too made hays while the sun shone. Marcus Stoinis played a decent innings of 38 runs in the middle order, but it was Henrich Klaasen who gave the finishing touch to the innings.

Klaasen blew Paarl Royals with his astounding half-century knock in just 17 deliveries. His innings saw a flurry of sixes and fours as he helped his side post a total of 208 runs in 20 overs.

The task of 208 runs was huge in front of the Royals, who had already suffered a loss at the hands of the Super Giants two days back. The pressure of scoring at par with the required run rate didn’t let any of the Royals’ batters take a sigh of relief. For them, the task was to whack the bowlers from ball one, which apparently didn’t go well.

Paarl Royals lost wickets in clusters and barring two of their batters, who scored 14 and 36 runs, none of the remaining players could cross the double digits.

In response to the 208 runs total posted by Durban Super Giants, Paarl Royals succumbed in just 13.2 overs after scoring 83 runs. Royals were bowled out by the Super Giants, won the fixture by 125 runs, and took an unassailable lead as we advance in SA20 2024.
