There has been a major update regarding the Mumbai-based franchise ahead of the upcoming season of the Indian T20 League. The franchise has added a player from South Africa as confirmed by their head coach Mark Boucher. Although Boucher did not reveal the name of that player, he indicated that this player has been signed.
During the SA20 League, Boucher confirmed that the new signing for Mumbai is a South African. However, it is not yet known whether this player will play for Mumbai Indians or for any other franchise. Apart from this, there is also a possibility that this player will be used as a net bowler.
“Yes, always nice to have South African flavor. We got another one. I’m not going to tell his name now, but he’s gonna be there, but the nice thing is that these guys are youngsters as well, and they are getting some good cricket time in.”
“They are getting good cricket time in a good competition as we have seen so far. So it’s going to be great working with Jansen and Brevis.”
Durban Super Giants beat MI Cape Town in SA20
Talking about the SA20, the tournament was back in action on Thursday, February 2 after an international break. Durban Super Giants and MI Cape Town clashed against each other in the 23rd match of the league. Durban elected to bowl first after winning the toss. Cape Town batters started off on a poor note as they lost their openers on the score of just 32 runs.
Later, Rassie Van der Dussen took matters into his own hands. Tim David also hit a few lusty hits but he also fell for 33. Odean Smith and Delano Potgieter then added the finishing touches to it. Cape Town ended with a good total of 165 runs.
Chasing the target, Super Giants started really well as skipper Quinton de Kock despite battling a finger injury batted like a dream. He was well supported by Matthew Breetzke who towards the end provided the final touches as the game looked a little tense. The Durban unit lost a few wickets in the end they won the match by 5 wickets.
