In a thrilling encounter at Boland Park, the Paarl Royals emerged victorious with a commanding 59-run triumph over MI Cape Town in Match 14 of SA20 2024 at Boland Park.

The contest was not only defined by the exceptional on-field cricketing prowess but also witnessed a unique and captivating performance by the Royals spinner Tabraiz Shamsi. Amidst the intensity of the game, he managed to steal the limelight not just with his cricketing skills but also with his breathtaking magic tricks showcased on the field.

Tabraiz Shamsi’s breathtaking bowling and amusing celebration

The enthralling spectacle unfolded in the 14th over of MI’s batting innings, showcasing the brilliance of Shamsi. On the third delivery of the over, the left-arm spinner delivered a tantalizingly tossed-up delivery to Sam Curran outside the leg stump. Aiming to clear the field, the left-handed batter attempted a sweep but lofted the ball into the air. The breath-holding moment arrived as fielder Fabian Allen made a valiant effort to seize the catch, prompting immediate jubilation in the Royals camp.

However, a theatrical celebration followed, as Shamsi unleashed his trademark colour-changing ‘magic handkerchief’ celebration. The theatrics, though, were not the climax, as the 33-year-old spinner claimed the crucial wicket of MI skipper Kieron Pollard on the fifth delivery of the same over. This pivotal breakthrough tilted the balance in favour of the Royals, turning the game decisively in their direction and etching Shamsi’s performance as a memorable highlight of the encounter.
