The SA20 has started with a bang with a lot of big scores and exceptional matches on display. The teams look really good in the five matches that have taken place as of now, and it looks like a promising future going forward in the league. With some big games and big players coming up, we are hoping to have some more thrilling matches in the tournament as well. This has already started well with the spectators enjoying some big hits from the batters and some great wickets taken by the bowlers. It will be interesting to see what more we can witness in the future of this league as well.

We saw two high-scoring games in the last two features, especially the game between MI Cape Town and the Joburg Super Kings, where MI Cape Town put up a total of 243 runs against the Super Kings at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. The target seemed to be too much for the home team as they were bowled out for just 145 losing by a massive margin of 98 runs. Not everything went right for Faf Du Plessis and his men except for one moment that left everyone stunned.

Du Plessis becomes Superman

Super Kings captain Faf Du Plessis may have not had the best of days with the bat but still managed to lead from the front in the field. A big example was in the 17th over bowled by Lizaad Williams. Du Plessis who was positioned at mid off took one of the best catches in the league so far. MI Cape Town star batter Dewald Brevis had mistimed a slog and was only able to say it. Du Plessis was seen running back and diving covering ground and taking a one-handed blinder to dismiss the batter.

It might have not been enough to get a victory for the Super Kings, but this will still go down as one of the best catches in cricket history. It was great to see the 39-year-old skipper still being one of the best in the field with the same athleticism and awareness. There is still a long way to go in the league and if we get to see highlights like this, we should certainly be prepared for another exciting ride while watching this tournament. These fielding efforts are enough to keep the crown on its feet even in the most thrilling matches which we might get to witness.
