The South African T20 league, SA20 League, has been a hit off the mark already among the fans and people are already enjoying the level of competition and excitement surrounding the league.
The South African Cricket Board formed the SA20 League with much expectations after several attempts of forming their own T20 league on the path of the very successful IPL.
And with the backing of the 6 IPL franchises, the league has got off to a flying start. A total of 13 matches has been played as of writing this article and all of the matches have been competitive.
An example of it would be how Sunrisers Eastern Cape got the victory from a losing position against the mighty MI Cape Town team.
From having lost 6 wickets for 100 runs which chasing a target of 172, Sunrisers Eastern Cape’s Marco Jansen produced a fine inning of 66 runs from 27 balls to win the match for his team.
Meanwhile during his inning, something interesting happened on the ground. It was during the 13 over of the Sunrisers’ inning when Jansen played a shot towards the mid-wicket where Pakistani anchor Zainab Abbas was conducting interview by the boundary.
The fielders chased a ball, but MI Cape Town unintentionally took down Zainab Abbas in an attempt to stop the boundary. Following this, the Twitterati have shared their funny and supportive message on this.
