Three teams have reached their way to the semi-finals, and with this victory, the Sri Lankan Legends have also taken on the South African Legends in semi-final 2. But who will face India legends in semi-final 1? A winner takes on all the competition, England giants take on West Indies legends in the final game of the league stage. This game starts at 19:00 local (13:30 GMT).
Andrew Puttick has been named Man of the Match for his impressive performance with the bat. Putic says he tried to keep it simple and played good cricket shots. Tell him Van Wyk kept him calm. Putic says he wanted to push the Bangladesh fielder into the field. It tells them they had some guys swallowed, and so they saw the game end. What if they wanted to finish the game before they did? Putic says the match against Sri Lanka will be great, and he can’t wait for it.
South African Legends captain Jonty Rhodes jokes he turned the clock too far. Jonty says the situation they find themselves in gives them time to see how the injury responds. Rhodes thinks it could have been very interesting if he had ended up losing a wicket or two. Jonty says they knew they had talented players at the top but say they felt if they could take 3-4 wickets, they could take them out. Rhodes says Sri Lanka legends practice a lot while watching them play cricket at the hotel. He tells him he hopes to take quick wickets against them and put them under pressure.
Bangladesh Legends Khalid Mahmood says he has dealt with the problem throughout the tournament. He mentions that he played far too many point balls that didn’t do his best. He mentions that there is moisture at night so that the ball gets wet and the hitting becomes easier. He went on to mention that the South African Legends batted professionally. He says they didn’t get enough chance to practice because of Covid, and he says that certainly can’t be an excuse. She ends by saying that the next time they have a chance, they will look for a better way to perform.
Earlier in the evening, Bangladesh legends batted. They started well and were looking for a total of more than 175. But the wheels fell badly towards the end of their innings, and they stuttered their way to 160. Defend a total that wasn’t good enough for them and get their first real win. They come out of the tournament without a real win.
A tough night for Bangladesh legends bowlers, the collapse of the batsmen towards the end meant they were almost 15-20 runs short, and it turned out. The Bangladeshi Legends needed regular wickets, but they couldn’t apply that pressure because Putic and Van Wyk were just outstanding.
After 161, the South African knew they were short of a batsman when captain Jonty Rhodes worked together. Putic and Van Wyk followed brilliantly. Putic played the striker, while Van Wyk liked to play second fiddle. The openers themselves sealed the deal and easily took the side across the finish line.
South Africa is chasing an excellent run of legends, and although they have been in an injury crisis, South Africa has secured their place in third place in the Legends League table and will take on Sri Lanka Legends in the semi-final! Apart from an injury to Jonty Rhodes, it was a perfect day at the office for them!
