The top two teams in MSL 2.0 go head-to-head at Port Elizabeth, as Nelson Mandela Bay Giants take on Cape Town Blitz. Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have beaten Jozi Stars twice, either side of a no-result against Tshwane Spartans so far.
Cape Town Blitz have also beaten the Stars twice, bit also beat Durban Heat last time out.
They do have a heavy defeat to Paarl Rocks on their record as well though.
Only one of last season’s scheduled matches between these two teams was possible last season. Cape Town Blitz won that game as Janneman Malan hit 57 in a total of 175/6 and Dale Steyn’s 2-21 in reply proved vital in an innings reduced to 16 overs.
The Giants’ 132/6 – led by Heino Kuhn’s 55 – was 12 runs behind the DLS method target.
Cape Town Blitz are our favorites to win this game.
