T20 World Cup 2024 Match 21: South Africa vs Bangladesh| Captains’ Corner

You’re always pretty nervous in the final over in a game like that. It was always on a knife’s edge, it can make you mentally tired. It’s always nice to be in them though. Sometimes you get on the right side, sometimes not, but it’s very entertaining. 19.5 (full toss) could’ve gone anywhere, could’ve gone two more metres further and we’d have had a different conversation. Like I mentioned, a few things went our way today, very fortunate on that to get on the right side. (Will Maharaj bowl the 20th over again) Depends on the situation, you want to drag the game as long as you can, so you use quicks to attack. Today was one of those days where the seamers were bowling well, we wanted to drag it to the end where anything could happen in the last over. We’re putting Klaasen and Miller under pressure but they’ve been exceptional. 

Aiden Markram(South Africa Captain) said post-match

Everyone was nervous, but were confident when Jaker was there. It didn’t happen but that’s okay. Tanzid really worked hard last couple of games, we needed new-ball wickets and he showed his character. This is the match we should have won, we nearly did but the last couple of overs they bowled well. It can happen in cricket. Rishad is very good, he’s bowled well in the last two games and in practice. We’ve struggled with legspin in 10-15 years but hope he goes far. Wherever we play, we get a lot of support. Hope it’s the same in the West Indies.
