17:03 Local Time, 15:03 GMT, 20:33 IST: Paarl Royals win by 10 runs. Heinrich Klaasen's unbeaten 56 off 39 balls goes in vain. Just ran out of gas there towards the end, and didn't have much support either with wickets tumbling. The damage was done in the powerplay as Bjorn Fortuin bowled a brilliant spell, picking up 3 wickets for just 13 in his four overs. He stood out with the ball in the first half, and then Evan Jones did the same in the second, using his variations nicely to get a four-fer. It was a two-paced pitch where most batters struggled, and Klaasen was left with way too much to do.

DSG: 159-8 after 20 overs

19.6 Evan Jones to Subrayen, 1 run, pitched right up on the pads, Subrayen swipes it to deep backward square

19.5 Evan Jones to Subrayen, no run, cracking yorker that hits Subrayen on the back leg. Was going down leg with the angle. But more importantly, Jones has all but sealed the win

19.5 Evan Jones to Subrayen, wide, slower bouncer outside off, loops over Subrayen's attempted pull. Umpire calls it a wide for height

19.4 Evan Jones to Klaasen, leg byes, 1 run, low full toss on leg, and Klaasen misses out! He swings and misses, and it goes off the pad through square leg

19.3 Evan Jones to Klaasen, 2 runs, slower dipping full toss outside off, Klaasen is deceived by it, goes through the slog early and drags it past short fine for two more

19.2 Evan Jones to Klaasen, 2 runs, slower one that follows Klaasen as he backs away, denies him the swinging room and he chips it in front of long-off. Charges back for two

19.1 Evan Jones to Subrayen, 1 run, low full toss outside off, Subrayen hammers it straight at Jones who fails to get a hand on it. Goes down to long-off for a single
