SA20 Points Table Updated (January 30): In an epic contest Mumbai Indians Cape Town (MICT) locked horns against Joburg Super Kings (JSK) in match 23 of the SA20 League 2024. The contest was staged at the Newlands in Cape Town on January 29th, which saw JSK defeat MICT by 10 wickets and climb up in the SA20 League Points Table.

Earlier, JSK invited the MICT to bat first, which didn’t seem to be a good decision. However, as things turned out, the move started falling in place and gave an advantage to the JSK.

Mumbai Indians Cape Town started off decently at around 6 runs per over until the rain intervened in the proceedings. MI had played six overs and scored 43 runs and after the play resumed following a long haul due to showers, they had just 12 more deliveries to play around as per the revised conditions.

At the end of eight overs, MICT found themselves in a decent position with 98 runs on board, thanks to skipper Kieron Pollard’s blitz innings of 33 runs in just 10 deliveries.

The problem was quite clear for the JSK, who only had the option to whack the opposition until they reached 98 runs total and the two Super Kings opener did exactly what was expected of them. Faf du Plessis and Leus du Plooy completely blew MICT out of the water and hunted down the target in just 5.5 overs.

The insane striking of the ball saw du Plooy score 41 runs in just 14 deliveries and his partner du Plessis contributed with a 20-ball half-century. The two not only helped JSK win the game but also bagged the crucial bonus point to further simplify the equation for his side.

MI’s ranking further plummeted after the contest as they stand at the bottom of the SA20 League Points Table. Below is the complete SA20 League Points Table Updated (January 30) after MICT vs JSK.

SA20 League Points Table Updated (January 30) after MICT vs JSK

With another poor outing, MI Cape Town have now almost cemented their place at the bottom of the SA20 League Points Table. MICT have only managed to win two matches so far after playing out 8 in the league. The franchise have just nine points to their name.

MICT, to stand any chance for the SA20 League Playoff qualification, needs to win both of their remaining matches with a decent margin. If possible the team must try to bag the bonus points in both the remaining fixtures.

Joburg Super Kings, on the other side, were sensational in their outing. JSK have managed to lift themselves to the fourth spot with the win over MICT in Newlands. JSK too have 2 wins so far in the tournament after playing 8 fixtures, but it is worth noting that two of their games have been washed out.
