Tshwane Spartans have made a big change this year at the leadership level. They have replaced AB de Villiers with Henrich Klassen as the skipper for this season. Clearly, the franchise has understood that AB is not going to be around forever, and they needed to find a replacement.
Tshwane Spartans have a nice mixture of young and experienced players in their squad. While AB de Villiers, Morne Morkel and Dean Elgar are the most experienced members of the squad, the likes of Lungi Ngidi and young Corbin Bosch are the youngest members of the squad.
As their first cricket game got abandoned without the toss, our prediction remains the same, which is the inclusion of Corbin Bosch, Lungi Ngidi and Morne Morkel in the playing eleven as bowlers.
Here is our prediction of Tshwane Spartans’ playing XI:
- Henrich Klassen
- AB de Villiers
- Dean Elgar
- Theunis de Bruyn
- RVD Merwe
- Morne Morkel
- Lungi Ngidi
- Lutho Sipamla
- Corbin Bosch
- Wiaan Mulder
- Petrus van Biljon
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have chosen JJ Smuts as their skipper for this season of Mzansi Super League. They finished of the last season at the number fourth spot and would like to do better this season.
They have begun well in this tournament. They won the first game of cricket against Jozi Stars by 24 runs. Despite the failure of Jason Roy and the rest of the top order batsmen, Giants managed to put a score of 167 runs. In reply, Jozi Stars could never really get ahead in the game as Giants bowlers kept a leash on them and kept picking up wickets in regular interval.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Nelson Mandela Bay Giants’ playing XI:
- JJ Smuts
- Chris Morris
- Jason Roy
- Farhan Behardien
- Imran Tahir
- Heino Kuhn
- Junior Dala
- MP Breetzke
- O Nyaku
- N Burger
- Ben Dunk
Expert Prediction: TS vs NMBG
The crowd at Durban had to go back disappointed as they could not see their favourite superstars in action due to rain. Now the caravan moves to Centurion, where Spartan will take on Giants in a crucial game of cricket.
Although Tshwane Spartans picked up two points due to the rain, they would now like to get the wins on the board. Spartans were led by AB de Villiers last season and yet finished off at the second last spot. With the new captain in Henrich Klassen, they would be hoping for a good finish this time around.
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, on the other hand, would be pleased with their performance of the first game. They were in deep trouble at one stage at 48 for 4 but recovered well thanks to a good partnership between Farhan Behardien and Heino Kuhn. Once they posted 167 runs on the board, it was always going to be a difficult task for Jozi Stars as they had to contend with the likes of Imran Tahir and Chris Morris.
Our prediction for this game is of Nelson Mandela Bay Giants win as they have already played one game and won that game despite being in trouble. Spartans, on the other hand, would be looking to find the right combination.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
