MI Cape Town's openers Rassie van der Dussen and Ryan Rickleton hammered the Pretoria Capitals bowling as they scored 66/1 at the end of the powerplay. However, following van der Dussen's dismissal in the fifth over, the Capitals hoped to limit MICT to a manageable total in ten overs. But things went wrong for the Capitals bowling as the visitors showed no compassion and smashed the white cherry out of the park.
Dewald Brevis and Sam Curran later powered the MICT innings, taking their team to 198/4 in 17 overs. Brevis, the youngster had a difficult season, appearing spectacular with the bat, scoring 66 off 32 deliveries and smashing a 'No Look' six. The video of his six has gone viral on social media. The 20-year-old Brevis was relieved that his innings ended his drought.
The Cape Town won the game by 34 runs after setting a mammoth target, with a lone fight by Kyle Verreyenne who played a knock of 114 runs and got no support from the other end ending a knock in the loss for the side.

Grateful to contribute to the team and to have a great score: Dewald Brevis
Brevis was excited to return to form after a lean patch with the bat in SA20. The youngster expressed his gratitude and credited skipper Kieron Pollard for backing him throughout the league stage. He told AB de Villiers in the mid-match show, "This has been an interesting time. Firstly, I have to thank god for this. At the end of the tunnel, there is light. Grateful to contribute to the team and to have a great score."
Brevis added, "[on batting with Pollard] It was unbelievable. He told me to wait after a slower ball and I took one and gave the strike to him. That gave us the momentum. Really enjoyed to be out there in front of my home crowd. I love it here. I back us all the way and we will give it our all."
