A good batting surface is on offer at the Kingsmead. While there is some turn for the spinners, pacers will be key. 165 would be a good total while chasing would be the ideal choice upon winning the toss.

No injuries are reported from either side
Probable Playing XI
Durban Heat will field their strongest side with Alex Hales and Sarek Erwee expected to open the innings with Khaya Zondo batting at three. The experienced trio of Bopara, Vilas and Miller follow them with Miller expected to play the floaters role for the Heat. The presence of Andile Phehlukwayo at seven adds balance to the side with his death bowling ability being crucial. Keshav Maharaj and Kyle Abbott are also key components of the bowling unit. Young, Marco Jansen should get the nod over Siboto.
Tshwane Spartans have a certain AB de Villiers in their ranks. Theunis de Bruyn and Heinrich Klassen are also players capable of scoring quick runs. Their bowling unit is perhaps the best in the league with former South African all-rounder, Reolof van der Merwe handling the spin duties. The pace trio of Sipamla, Morkel and Ngidi is one to fear with the option of Waqar Salamkheil also available for the Spartans
Top Picks for Durban Heats vs Tshwane Spartans Dream11 Team:
AB de Villiers is one of the best players in the format and is bound to feature in most fantasy team for this game. Along with the RCB and TST batsman, David Miller and Andile Phehlukwayo are also must haves in the side considering their ability to win matches single-handedly. Heinrich Klassen is preferred over Dane Vilas as the lone keeper while Ravi Bopara and Khaya Zondo also find a place in the side. Although there are a number of world-class options in the bowling department, the trio of Lutho Sipamla, Kyle Abbott and Lungi Ngidi is preferred.
