PITCH AND CONDITIONS
There will be some cloud cover and conditions that will be humid, but there is zero chance of rain on the forecast for Port Elizabeth on Wednesday evening and temperatures will be in the high-teens.
Port Elizabeth is generally a slower wicket, making for a generally balanced contest between batsmen and bowler that leans more towards the former if anything.
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants
- Matthew Breetzke and Farhaan Behardien both dropped out last time out, with Grant Thomson and Marco Marais replacing them.
- Ben Dunk moved up to open the batting. After a convincing win, that tactic could be deployed again this time out.
- Frustrated by the rain when they were well on top against Tshwane Spartans, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants got back on track against Jozi Stars last time out beating them for the second time in this year’s tournament.
- They won the first match, at Port Elizabeth, by 24 runs but this second game was a one-sided victory Junior Dala and Imran Tahir took three wickets each as they bowled the Stars out for 108 and Ben Dunk’s unbeaten half-century led them to a nine-wicket win in just 9.1 overs.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF Nelson Mandela Bay Giants
Jason Roy, Ben Dunk (wk), JJ Smuts (c), Heino Kuhn, Grant Thomson, Marco Marais, Chris Morris, Onke Nyaku, Junior Dala, Imran Tahir, Nandre Burger
Cape Town Blitz
- Unchanged last time out, Cape Town Blitz made it back-to-back wins and that same winning 11 could be retained again for this match.
- Cape Town Blitz has won three of their four games so far, including their last two back-to-back. Liam Livingstone hit 65 from 41 balls and Sisanda Magala claimed 3-17 in a dominant 57-run win against Jozi Stars in the first of those.
- Last time out, the Blitz posted 174/6 as Marques Ackerman and Asif Ali both hit 43, and Dale Steyn took 2-23 to limit Durban Heat to 164/7 in reply.
