Sunrisers Eastern Cape defeated Durban Super Giants in the summit clash of SA20 2023-24 to claim back-to-back titles. The Aiden Markram-led side registered an empathic 89-run victory over the Super Giants. Opting to bat first, the Sunrisers posted a whopping total of 204/3 in 20 overs with Tristan Stubbs and Tom Abell scoring 56* and 55 runs respectively. Later, the Super Giants were bundled out for 115 with Marco Jansen claiming a five-wicket haul. It was a joyous moment for the whole team, including their host Kavya Maran as she whole-heartedly celebrated her side’s victory.

After the match, memes surfaced on social media, showing the two moods of Maran. Through the memes, fans looked to highlight the contrasting expressions of Maran, one from the SA20 league and the other from the Indian Premier League. Here are some examples:

Notably, SRH had a forgettable outing in the 2023 edition of the IPL. In 14 matches, they registered victories in just four and finished at the bottom of the points table. Similarly in 2022, they finished at the eighth spot with six wins in 14 matches.

Talking about the SA20 match, partnerships were crucial in the Sunrisers’ innings with Hermann and Abell setting up the winning total with a 90-run stand for the second wicket after the early loss of Dawid Malan.

Durban’s Super Giants captain, Keshav Maharaj, hit back with a double-wicket over by removing both set batters in Hermann and Abell.

But the Sunrisers showed they had plenty more in reserve with Markram and Stubbs rebuilding the innings before exploding towards the backend with 98 runs off 55 balls.

The Sunrisers’ bowling has been their strongest discipline all season and their seamers certainly rose to the occasion on the night.
