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.

- Dane Vilas
- Kyle Abbot
- Kesav Maharaj

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants are being led by JT Smuts in this season of Mzansi Super League. So far, he has led the side wonderfully well and his tactics have brought about a lot of success this season.
Giants are coming off a loss in their last cricket game against Paarl Rocks. It would have been disappointing for Giants to lose the game in such one-sided manner. They had to chase down the score of 167 runs against Rocks but failed to do so by 31 runs. Jason Roy was dismissed off the golden duck and from there on, nobody could really take the opportunity and the innings got wrapped up.
Despite the loss in previous cricket game, Giants have almost everyone in good form and with four wins out of six games, our prediction is of the same side that played the last cricket game barring any injury.
Here is our prediction of Nelson Mandela Bay Giants’ playing XI:
- JJ Smuts
- Chris Morris
- Jason Roy
- Marco Marais
- Imran Tahir
- Heino Kuhn
- Junior Dala
