Jozi Stars restricted Cape Town Blitz to just 113/7 from their 20 overs in last year’s MSL final, before Rassie van der Dussen’s unbeaten half-century led them to the inaugural title. It was their second win against the Blitz, though Cape Town had won the first match.
Quinton de Kick (74) and Janneman Malan (66) helped the Blitz to 198/5 in the first match before they bowled the stars out for 136. Reeza Hendricks hit 79 in a total of 196/4 in the re-match, however, and Dan Christian’s 4-22 saw them bowl Cape Town out for 146 in reply.
Cape Town Blitz are our favorites to win this game.
