Nelson Mandela Bay Giants vs Paarl Rocks, Match 17
November 27th, 9:00 PM IST
St. George’s Park, Port Elizabeth
All the games at this venue have seen relatively high scoring games with the chasing side winning two games out of three. With dew coming into play in the latter stages, spinners will find it tough to grip the bowl. The dimensions of the ground also go against the bowlers although there some swing on offer for the pacers to exploit.
There isn’t any rain on the forecast which paves the way for a perfect day for a game of cricket. The temperature should range between 24-28 degrees Celsius while a few clouds are also expected to make an appearance as the game progresses.
No injuries are reported from either side.
Probable Playing XI
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants:
No changes are expected from the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants after yet another win at St George’s Park against Durban Heat. They have settled unit in their ranks with Jason Roy and JJ Smuts being key with the bat. However, their bowling unit has been their shining light with the trio of Junior Dala, Chris Morris and Imran Tahir revelling in the tournament. Along with Nandre Burger, they will be key against a formidable and deep Paarl Rocks batting unit as they look to cement their place at the top of the table.
Jason Roy, Matthew Breetzke, JJ Smuts, Ben Dunk, Heino Kuhn, Marco Marias, Chris Morris, Junior Dala, Imran Tahir, Nandre Burger and Onke Nyaku
Paarl Rocks should also field the same eleven after a morale boosting win over Cape Town Blitz. Nevertheless, they will be hoping for better performances from the duo of Faf du Plessis and Cameron Delport in the batting unit. Like their opponents, Paarl Rocks also possesses a lengthy batting unit with Isuru Udana slated to bat at number nine. While their bowling unit does look light on options, the spin twins, Tabriaz Shamsi and Bjorn Fortuin, are critical to their fortunes in this game.
Henry Davids, Cameron Delport, Faf du Plessis, James Vince, Dwaine Pretorius, Isuru Udana, Mangaliso Mosehle, Hardus Viljoen, Tabriaz Shamsi, Bjorn Fortuin and Sibonelo Makhanya
