Match Preview

From 8 games Cape Town Blitz played in this tournament, they won 4 games and lost 4. With 17 points, CTB are at the fifth position in the points table, though just two points less than the third-ranked Tshwane Spartans. NMBG won 3 of their previous five encounters while CTB lost 3 of their previous five games in MSL 2019. Both teams won their previous games against Tshwane Spartans.

NMBG and CTB have quality batsmen and bowlers; however, the presence of Dale Steyn in Cape Town Blitz team could really make a sizable difference, which is really required at this stage where the Blitz need to win both of their remaining games and qualify for the knock-out rounds.

Teams Preview

Cape Town Blitz

Cape Town Blitz launched their MSL 2019 campaign with a win against Jozi Stars. They won 3 of their first four games, but later they lost the plot and lost three consecutive games against NMBG, Paarl Rocks and Durban Heat, before defeating Tshwane Spartans on Sunday at Cape Town.

On Sunday, playing against Spartans, CTB scored 157 runs batting first, thanks to 53 off 40 by David Bedingham and Malan’s helpful 36 runs. The bowlers successfully defended the total mainly due to Steyn’s magical 4 overs 10 for 3, supported well by Wahab Riaz (3 overs 18 for 2). Eventually, they restricted the Spartans at 142 in 20 overs.

To make it to the next round, Cape Town Blitz bowlers need to continue their exuberant bowling display in the remaining two matches while the batting unit needs to slightly level up their game.

Quinton de Kock (286 runs in last 10 innings) is the second most successful batsman for CTB after Malan (298 runs in MSL 2019). While Steyn (15 wickets in MSL 2019) and Magala (9 wickets in last 8 matches) are the leading wicket-takers for CTB.

Key Players: Janneman Malan, Dale Steyn, Wahab Riaz, Quinton de Kock

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants remained unbeaten in their first five games of MSL 2019, as they won 4 of those games and 1 game was washed out against Tshwane Spartans. Then followed NMBG’s two consecutive losses against Paarl Rocks and Durban Heat.

They returned to their winning streak by defeating Spartans on Tuesday at Port Elizabeth and achieved the top-place in the points table. Against Tshwane, Dunk’s unbeaten 54 balls 99 and thirties from RN ten Doeschate and M Marais led the team’s run-chase which ended successfully in 19.4 overs. Imran Tahir was remarkable too for his 4 overs 28 for 2 wickets.

Ben Dunk (278 runs in last 8 innings) and JJ Smuts (249 runs in last 10 innings) are the key batsmen for NMBG while Imran Tahir (12 wickets in last 8 matches) and Junior Dala (12 wickets in last 8 matches) are the leading wicket-takers.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

On the match day, the weather at Newlands would be partly cloudy. Daytime temperature will reach 24°c while nighttime minimum temperature is expected to be around 19°c. Overall, it will be dry with no precipitation.

Venue Details

The match is scheduled to be played at Newlands, Cape Town. The average first and second innings score on this surface is 149 and 143, while the highest total is 192 by South Africa against Pakistan. The highest total chased is 181 while the lowest defended is 154.

Toss Prediction

Newlands' surface has enough help for the bowlers especially in the later stages of the game. Out of the 4 games played in this tournament, 3 times the teams batting first have won. It is a good idea to bat in the best batting conditions in the first innings. Thus, the team winning the toss should opt to bat first.

Winning Prediction

Cape Town Blitz played some good cricket this season, but at the moment their position in the points table does not look good. NMBG couldn’t make it to the playoffs last year, but this time, being the table-topper, and just two games to go, they have almost secured the ticket to the final.

Both the teams have quality players and a high voltage encounter is expected. NMBG are at the top, but not invincible. Cape Town Blitz has a slight edge especially considering the bowling unit of both the sides and the home conditions.

Our prediction is that Cape Town Blitz will defeat Nelson Mandela Bay Giants!
