No one can predict what will happen in cricket. Sometimes the teams that are close to victory lose, and sometimes the teams that go to the brink of defeat get amazing victories. A similar scene was repeated in the SA20 league. But the only difference is.. as happy as the winning team was.. the same happiness was seen in the camp of the losing team. Yes..! You heard it right.. On 7th February there was a match between Pretoria Capitals and Paarl Royals. In this, Paarl Royals lost by 59 runs. However, there was joy in the team’s camp.

How do you think this is possible.. Batting first in this match, Pretoria Capitals scored 226 runs for 5 wickets in 20 overs. Pretoria team batsman Kushal Mendis scored the highest 80 runs in just 41 balls. At the end of Ingram’s brilliant innings of 41 runs, the team achieved a huge score in the allotted overs. Parl Royals, who came into the ring as a part of breaking the target, managed to make only 167 in 20 overs. Jos Buttler was the top scorer with 70 runs. As a result, Paarl Royals lost in this match by 59 runs.

How did you win?

This defeat is like a victory for Paarl Royals. Pretoria need to chase down a target of 227 runs while the latter need to score at least 163 runs to clinch a berth in the semi-finals. Although the Paarl Royals team failed to get the first one, they got the second one easily. So even from defeat, they were able to finalize the semifinal berth.
