Joburg Super Kings 182 for 2 (du Plessis 113*, Hendricks 45) beat Durban’s Super Giants 178 for 6 (Klaasen 65, Holder 28*, Coetzee 3-21) by 8 wickets
DSK also started magnificently with the ball. The first three overs, bowled by Mayers, Keshav Maharaj and Reece Topley, conceded just eight runs. While du Plessis began to lay a platform, Hendricks continued to struggle. By the end of the 13th over, JSK had managed 97, with the run rate approaching 12.
But from thereon du Plessis found a purple patch. The next three overs produced 55 runs, with du Plessis completing a 54-ball hundred. Even Hendricks found the fence on a few occasions, and by the time the asking rate was a run a ball. DSK struck twice to take the game into the final over, but by now, JSK had control, and in the end, yet another creamy drive over cover for six from du Plessis sealed the win.
