Joburg Super Kings

Donovan Ferriera scored a brilliant 82 off just 40 deliveries. However, the side has failed to show the same resilience in their ongoing match against Paarl Royals, where the du Plessis-led side got bundled out for just 81 runs. The side has a lot to ponder before the big game against MI Cape Town.
