Tshwane Spartans have had an on-off season. Most of their cricket games have been rained off and the ones which they played have been very exciting to watch. Their current status is that they have played nine cricket games and won three, lost two and the rest have been abandoned. As a result, despite winning just three games, they are above their opponents of this game, Cape Town Blitz, on the points table.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game barring any injury.
Here is our prediction of Tshwane Spartans’ playing XI:
- AB de Villiers
- Dean Elgar
- Morne Morkel
- Roelof van der Merwe
- Tom Curran
- Lungi Ngidi
- Pite van Biljon
- PWA Mulder
- Theunis de Bruyn
- Heinrich Klaasen
- Lutho Sipamla
Cape Town Blitz
Cape Town Blitz are being led by Quinton de Kock in this season of Mzansi Super League. After beginning the season well, they have now slipped to the fifth spot and are in danger of losing out on the semifinal spot.
In their last five cricket games, Blitz have managed to win just one game hence, their position on the points table has really deteriorated. Their last cricket game must have shocked them. They needed to chase down the total of 173 runs on batting second and they were completely on their way towards a victory. At one stage, they were 106 for 1 in just 9.4 overs but lost their way spectacularly and ended up being 11 short. Now they need to win the final cricket game to be sure of their semifinal spot.
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
Expert Prediction: TS vs CTB
Such has been the effect of rain in this edition of Mzansi Super League that a side placed at number three spot, Tshwane Spartans, have less number of wins than the side placed at fifth, Cape Town Blitz. Spartans have just played five full games out of nine and won three out of those. Blitz have been lucky on the rain front but have lost more games than Spartans.
Tshwane Spartans are coming off back-to-back losses in their last two games. A loss against Cape Town Blitz by 15 runs was followed by a loss against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants by six wickets. As a result of those two losses, Spartans now find themselves in a must-win situation and they must respond.
Cape Town Blitz too are in a bit of a rut at the moment and must get themselves up for the final group game. With some thunderstorm forecast for this cricket game, it is likely to be a curtailed game once again. Our prediction is of Tshwane Spartans’ victory but if rain plays the spoilsport, it will be all over for Blitz.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
