Donovan
Ferreira’s
amazing
SA20
Debut:

And
amid
the
recent
upsurge
in
his
career,
the
player
capitalized
on
the
momentum
in
the
SA20
on
Wednesday.

Playing
for
Joburg
Super
Kings,
he
dismantled
the
Durban
Super
Giants
bowling
and
scored
an
unbeaten
82
off
just
40
balls.
Ferreira
came
into
the
crease
when
his
team
was
tottering
at
27/4,
but
he
launched
a
scathing
counterattack
and
thrashed
everything
that
came
his
way.

The
player
hit
8
fours
and
5
sixes
in
his
fantastic
inning,
taking
the
Joburg
score
to
190
at
the
end
of
their
full
quota
of
overs.
And
it
was
not
the
end.
He
came
in
to
roll
the
arms
and
bowled
four
overs,
picking
up
a
wicket
in
it
while
conceding
just
28
runs.
He
picked
up
the
crucial
wicket
of
Durban
captain
Quinton
de
Kock
(78
off
52
balls),
putting
a
significant
dent
in
their
chase.

Courtesy
of
his
magical
knock,
the
Super
Kings
won
by
16
runs
as
Ferreira
was
adjudged
the
player
of
the
match.

It
is
an
amazing
start
to
his
franchise
career.
The
player
was
confident
and
didn’t
get
fazed
by
the
pressure.
He
came
into
play
under
difficult
circumstances
but
batted
in
his
natural
style,
which
speaks
volumes
of
him.
And
he
was
quite
confident
even
during
the
presentation.


“Just
trying
to
focus
on
my
game,
the
coaching
staff
picked
me
for
a
reason
and
I
will
do
what
I
just
needed
to
do.
I
like
playing
a
positive
brand
of
cricket,”

he
said.
