The 5th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 will be played between Tshwane Spartans and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants kicked off their MSL 2019 campaign with a match against Jozi Stars. The team batted first and did not get off to a great start. Middle order batsmen Heino Kuhn and Farhaan Behardien scored 40s to take the team's total past 160.

The partnership between Reeza Hendricks and Temba Bavuma for the second wicket was looking threatening at one point with the Stars on their way to a win. Junior Dala worked his magic with two quick wickets and helped the Bay Giants win the game by 24 runs.

Tshwane Spartans were slated to begin their campaign with a match against Durban Heat in the second fixture of the tournament. But, it could not be played due to rain. The downpour was so heavy that even the toss could not be conducted and the match had to the abandoned.
