Nelson Mandela Bay Giants start their MSL 2.0 campaign against defending champions Jozi Stars, who started this year’s tournament with a defeat. In a re-run of last year’s final, the Stars opened against Cape Town Blitz but Reeza Hendricks’ 80 from 53 balls was not enough – they posted 198/5 in reply to 213/3.
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, meanwhile, are looking to go one better than last year’s fourth-place finish, and have retained JJ Smuts, Imran Tahir, Jason Roy and Junior Dala in their bid to do that.
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants are our favorites to win this game.
