<p>With amazing eye coordination, the speedster sprang high to retrieve the ball with both hands in midair. Naveen finished an unbelievable screamer, never letting go of the ball as he crashed down to the field. Naveen’s outstanding fielding was sufficient to force Plooy, who had amassed 10 runs in seven balls, to return to the dressing room. The whole series was posted on Twitter (previously known as social media platform X). The message said, “Naveen-Ul-Haq, you are the epitome of beauty.”</p>
<p>The Johannesburg Super Kings won the toss and choose to bowl first to start the second qualifier. Heinrich Klaasen and Wiaan Mulder wrecked havoc in the opening innings, thus things did not go as planned. Mulder contributed a supporting knock of an undefeated fifty runs and Klassen hit 74 runs off of 30 balls, leading Durban’s Super Giants to an overwhelming 211.</p>
<p>Leus do Ploy and captain Faf du Plessis opened for the Johannesburg Super Kings in the run chase. Afghanistan player Naveen-ul-Haq had already removed Faf in the second over of the innings before he took the catch of Leus du Plooy. Super Kings were limited to only 142 runs, thus the early scalp turned out to be significant. Naveen secured a spot for his team in the SA20 2024 final with two wickets left to his name.</p>
<p>After placing second in the SA20 2024 season, the Durban Super Giants will play the Sunrisers Eastern Cape in the championship game. However, the Eastern Cape defeated the Super Giants by a score of 51 runs, demonstrating their superior strength.</p>
<p>The Super Giants of Durban will now play the Sunrisers Eastern Cape in the SA20 2024 final after winning the second qualifier. On Saturday, February 10, that summit match is set to take place at the Newlands Cricket Ground.</p>
