The 9th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 will be played between Durban Heat and Cape Town Blitz at the Kingsmead in Durban.

Durban Heat are placed at the second last spot in the Mzansi Super League 2019 points table with both of their games being washed out. Their first game was scheduled against Tshwane Spartans but was abandoned without a ball being bowled. Their next match against Paarl Rocks met the same fate.

Cape Town Blitz started off their campaign with a 15-run win against Jozi Stars in the opening encounter of the tournament. They were then beaten against Paarl Rocks by a comprehensive margin of 86 runs. However, the team came back strongly against Cape Town Blitz and registered a 57-run win.

After three games, Cape Town Blitz have 9 points and a net run rate of -0.233. They are placed right at the top of the points table.

It is hardly a surprise that Janneman Malan is the top-scorer for Cape Town Blitz with 121 runs from 3 innings, including an unbeaten 99. He has an average of over 60 and has struck at an excess of 150. Liam Livingstone and Quinton de Kock have 91 and 92 runs respectively from 3 games each.

Sisanda Magala is not only their top wicket-taker but of the entire tournament with five wickets from three games at an average of 15.20 and best match figures of 3-17.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI both teams:

Cape Town Blitz - Dale Steyn, Wahab Riaz, Quinton de Kock (c & wk), Asif Ali, Liam Livingstone, Sisanda Magala, George Linde, Anrich Nortje, Marques Ackerman, Gregory Mahlokwana, Janneman Malan
