A very good crowd of 13,898 was in attendance at Newlands for the MI Cape Town vs Pretoria Capitals game (January 23, 2023). The crowd figure, announced on air during the MICT innings, was quite good for a Monday evening, and in fact was greater than the attendance for the tournament opener at the same venue.
PC opener Will Jacks lit up Newlands with a stunning 62 (27) that saw the Capitals race to 84 inside their first six overs. They eventually finished on 182/8 in their allotted 20, with the none of their remaining batsmen really able to replicate what Jacks had done against the likes of Archer, Rabada and Curran.
In reply, MICT collapsed after Dewald Brevis’ wicket as the Capitals comfortably won by 52 runs.
