Sunrisers Eastern Cape successfully defend SA20 title against Durban Super Giants

Sunrisers Eastern Cape retained their SA20 title with an emphatic 89-run victory over Durban Super Giants at Newlands.

Posting a formidable 204/3, the Sunrisers' early defensive efforts mirrored their previous encounter. 

Smart fielding and stellar bowling by Dan Worrall and Marco Jansen left the Super Giants reeling at 3 wickets down within the power play, including the dismissal of Quinton de Kock.

Despite a brief resurgence led by Wiaan Mulder's 38 off 22 balls, the Sunrisers' fielding brilliance and Ottneil Baartman's double wicket over quickly quashed any hopes of a Super Giants comeback. 

Baartman, Jansen, and Worrall emerged as top wicket-takers, showcasing the Sunrisers' bowling prowess.

Jordan Hermann and Tom Abell's 90-run partnership set the stage for Aiden Markram and Tristan Stubbs to launch a late assault. 

Markram's strategic decision to bat first paid dividends, with Abell capitalizing on Super Giants' missed chances in the power play.

Abell's dynamic innings, complemented by Hermann's support, laid the foundation for the Sunrisers' imposing total. 

Despite the Super Giants briefly regaining momentum, Markram and Stubbs' onslaught in the final overs secured victory.
