Cape Town Blitz
Cape Town Blitz are being led by Quinton de Kock in this season of Mzansi Super League. They are well placed at number fourth spot on the points table but would like to move higher on the points table.
Blitz are coming off a close loss against Paarl Rocks. They fell short of their target of 164 runs by just two runs and would have been left very disappointed. However, there were positives for them even in the loss as despite not getting significant contributions from their top order, they stayed in the game. Vernon Philander and Mohammad Nawaz showed their batting skills and put on a good partnership late in the innings.
Their batting has so far been led by Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks and Liam Livingstone in this tournament, whereas Dale Steyn has been the leader of the bowling attack. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Cape Town Blitz’s playing XI:
- Dale Steyn
- Vernon Philander
- Wahab Riaz
- Mohammad Nawaz
- Quinton de Kock
- Asif Ali
- Liam Livingstone
- Janneman Malan
- SSB Magala
- Anrich Nortje
- Vernon Philander
Dane Vilas is the skipper for Durban Heat this season. They were led by allrounder Albie Morkel last year who is no longer available.
Durban Heat finished last year at the last spot. In the second season, rain has not helped their cause as their first two cricket games have been abandoned due to rain. They are coming off two consecutive losses. They lost their last game in the final over by five wickets against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants. Heat had scored 160 runs on batting first and for a while, it looked like that they are going to get their first win of the season. However, the likes of Chris Morris and Jason Roy had other ideas and their performances proved to be the difference between the two sides.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game barring any injury.
Here is our prediction of Durban Heat’s playing XI:
- Dane Vilas
- Kyle Abbot
- Kesav Maharaj
- Ravi Bopara
- Alex Hales
- David Miller
- Khaya Zondo
- Andile Phehlukwayo
- Shaun von Berg
- Prenelan Subrayen
- Wesley Marshall
Expert Prediction: CTB vs DH
Durban Heat and Cape Town Blitz will take on each other for the second time in the second season of Mzansi Super League. In the first cricket game between the two sides, Cape Town Blitz emerged victorious by ten runs. That win was brought about by some good batting from Asif Ali and some fantastic bowling from Dale Steyn late in Durban Heat’s innings.
Quinton de Kock has led from the front for Cape Town Blitz and has been supported well by Reeza Hendricks and Liam Livingstone with the bat. With the ball, Dale Steyn and Anrich Nortje have been very good at the various stages of the innings.
Durban Heat would be looking to get their first win of the tournament sooner than later. With just a handful of the games left in the group stage, time is running out for them. Due to the current form, our prediction is of yet another win for Cape Town Blitz over Durban Heat.
