Time for the post-match presentations

Dane Vilas says "you can't set 120-odd at Wanderers." No time to dwell on this, he says. "Been playing well in warm-ups and training, need to be much smarter. It was hard to get going, need to bash out a few ideas with the coach."

JJ Smuts says this wasn't a traditional Wanderers surface. "Duckett made it look unbelievably easy."

Ben Duckett is the Player of the Match for his 45-ball 75.

He isn't a recognised T20 name worldwide yet, but Ben Duckett showed glimpses of hitting ability. He smashed a 27-ball half-century, but that the Bay Giants still took 18 overs to chase 125 showed that the other batsmen couldn't really get going. Victory in 16 overs would have fetched them a bonus point, but it was not to be. The Stars paid the price for injudicious shot selection, limping to an inadequate 124 for 7, with JJ Smuts, the left-arm spinner, being Ravindra Jadeja-esque with his control and guile.
