The much-anticipated franchise T20 tournament SA20 2023 is underway in South Africa as six participating are locking horns with each other to win the inaugural title of the tournament. The players of different cricketing countries are playing for the teams owned by the Indian T20 League franchises. The brilliant display of cricket from the players has also amused ardent cricket fans.
A similar happened during the 5th match of the tournament between MI Cape Town and Durban’s Super Giants at the Newlands stadium. Star Caribbean all-rounder opened the bowling for Durban’s Super Giants as his skipper decided to bowl first after winning the toss.
Mayers amazed everyone with a stunning yorker to young batting prodigy Dewald Brevis on the second delivery of the first over of the innings. The intensity of the delivery was that much effective that Brevis had no reply to that excellence from the Barbados all-rounder.
The video of this amazing delivery by the 30-year-old is now making rounds on social media within minutes of being shared by a user on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
Here’s the video:
