Chasing the target, they couldn’t quite run away with the game and lost wickets later. Faf du Plessis made 37 off 38 while Leus du Plooy steered them over the line with an unbeaten 47 off 40. 

Durban’s Super Giants are reeling at the bottom of the table with eight points. They have won only two and have lost four, with net run-rate reading an awful -1.773. The Quinton de Kock-led side suffered a 124-run thrashing in the previous game at the hands of Sunrisers Eastern Cape.

Akila Dananjaya conceded 19 runs in three overs but the rest of the attack was belted all over the park. Chasing a massive target of 211, Wiaan Mulder was the top scored with 29 off 15 as their batting unit collapsed yet again. They were bowled out for just 82, having registered the lowest total of 80 in the game prior.
