The 8th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 will be played between Jozi Stars and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
After three matches, Jozi Stars are yet to open their account and are struggling with losses in all their games. They are placed right at the bottom of the pile with a net run rate of -1.600.
On the other hand, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have done well in their two games. They won their first match against Jozi Stars, courtesy of 40s from Heino Kuhn and Farhaan Behardien and some good bowling from Junior Dala.
Their next match against Tshwane Spartans was washed out due to rain without a ball being bowled and hence the team has 6 points.
