Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction MSL - Cape Town Blitz v Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

Ben Duckett 75 for Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in their last game

Cape Town Blitz have a lot of things going their way as they step out to clash against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants.

Cape Town Blitz have won both their matches against Tshwane Spartans and Durban Heat respectively, in the Mzansi Super League (MSL) so far. Apart from that, they will be also playing at their home venue which will give them a sense of relatability and calmness.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, however, are no less as they comfortably beaten Jozi stars in the opening match and also have a relatively better bowling line up then Cape Town Blitz.

Cape Town Blitz would expect good knocks from batsmen Dawid Malan, Kyle Verreynne and Asif Ali. Ali made an instant impact with a 33 ball 80 to win his team the last game. Verreynne also scored an unbeaten half-century in the first match. A big knock from skipper David Malan is just round the corner.

With the ball, Dale Steyn would be back and provide an X-factor for the team. Anrich Nortje picked up five wickets from two matches which includes a four-fer and he would look to be consistent with his performance.

For the Bay Giants, Ben Duckett has been in good form. He smashed 75 runs off just 45 deliveries against Jozi Stars. Skipper JJ Smuts and Christian Jonker are the other big names in the batting department.

With the ball, Junior Dala and Ryan McLaren will hold the key while Aaron Phangiso would be their lead tweaker.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
