Meanwhile, in the 10th over, a sharp shot came out of Markram’s bat. This attack on the ball of his national teammate and well-known South African pacer Kagiso Rabada was nothing less than a slap. Rabada bowled the third ball of the fourth over outside sound off stump, as if Markram was ready for this length ball. Kneeling on one knee, he hit such a whip shot over the covers that the ball went across the boundary after eating a tappa.
Apart from Aiden Markram, Sarel Irvi scored 41 runs. In the last, young batsman Tristan Stubbs hit 30 runs in just 18 balls and gave his team the first win of the tournament. In the two matches played earlier, the Sunrisers had suffered consecutive defeats against the Pretoria Capitals. After the victory, Markram said that it was a great relief for him.
