Match 15 of the SA20 will see Durban’s Super Giants play host to Pretoria Capitals at Kingsmead in Durban later today. Pretoria Capitals have won three out of four games so far and are comfortably sitting on top of the points table, while DSG are 4th with two wins and two losses. Lwanele Poswayo has prepared his best bets and has a prediction for this game.
I backed Nortje in Pretoria Captials’ previous game and he almost delivered after ending with figures of 3/12 in his four overs. His figures were only bettered by Jimmy Neesham (3/7). Nortje has been outstanding in the SA20, taking eight wickets in four games at 5.81 rpo.
Phil Salt and Will Jacks have been brilliant for PC at the top of the order and have played a huge role in their side’s great start to the competition. Salt had been impressive, scoring 159 runs at a strike rate of 169 with two half-centuries. He top-scored with 52* off 30 balls in their previous game and I’m backing him to do so again.
First 6 Overs
PC have a much more settled top 3 compared to DSG and they have the in-form pair of Phil Salt and Will Jacks at their disposal. Judging from what we’ve seen from the PC’s opening pair so far, backing them to score the most Powerplay runs is a no-brainer.
Pretoria Capitals have been the most impressive side in the tournament so far. Phil Salt with the bat and Anrich Nortje with the ball have been exceptional for the side. Even though DSG have had their moments in the SA20, the side has looked inconsistent with the bat. I’m picking Pretoria Capitals to win this game.
