CAPE TOWN – Not even a floodlight pylon failure at Newlands could halt the Cape Town Blitz’ charge to a third consecutive Mzansi Super League victory on Wednesday evening.
The disruption meant the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants’ target was revised from 176 to 145 in only 16 overs.
But having been reduced to 49/2 after 8.4 overs before the interruption, the Giants ultimately fell 12 runs short.
The Blitz were boosted by the inclusion of Proteas trio Farhaan Berhardien, Quinton de Kock and Andile Phehlukwayo.
Ultimately, though, it was opener Janneman Malan’s 57 off 39 balls and a resurgent Dale Steyn (2/21) that set up the win.
