The 11th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 will be played between Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and Cape Town Blitz at the St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants are placed at the second spot in Mzansi Super League 2019 points table with two wins and one washed out game out of their three matches. They have 11 points and a sensational net run rate of +3.22.

They will be up against Cape Town Blitz who are sitting comfortably at the top of the leaderboard with three wins and one loss from four matches. The team has 13 points and a net run rate of - 0.050.

The advantage for them is that they are one of the only two teams in the tournament who have not had any of their games being affected due to rain.

The Blitz played their last game against Durban Heat in which they beat the Heat by 10 runs. In a total of 174, Marques Ackerman and Asif Ali were the major contributors, both scoring 43 each. Dale Steyn and Gregory Mahlokwana then picked up two wickets each to help the team return with a victory.
