NMG vs PR Dream11 Prediction
Mzansi Super League, 2018 | Nelson Mandela Bay Giants vs Paarl Rocks, Match 29 | NMG vs PR Who Will Win
The Big Picture
The Bay Giants and Paarl Rocks, separated by four points in the points table, face each other in what could be a virtual quarter-final, as both sides tussle in a bid to make it to the top-3 of the 2018 Mzansi Super League. The Bay Giants could have consolidated their spot for the playoffs had they won their last encounter against Tshwane Spartans. But, Gihahn Cloete’s 59-ball-65 and Shaun von Berg’s 3-19 ensured they fell to a 28-run defeat after they failed to chase down 166. The Rocks, on the other hand, pulled off a much-needed win over the Jozi Stars after successfully chasing down 171 thanks to yet another whirlwind knock by Faf du Plessis  and all-rounder Grant Thomson’s 55-ball-71, and will hope for an encore to harbour chances of making it to the Playoffs.
With Jozi Stars pulling off a 10-run win over the Spartans, they have consolidated their place for the eliminator, which means the Bay Giants simply need to win the match against Paarl Rocks to knock both the latter and Tshwane Spartans out of the contest, making their game against Durban a dead rubber.However, if NMG loses today, that’ll keep all three sides in the reckoning. The Spartans will hope that Paarl Rocks beat NMG sans bonus point which will give them a glimmer of a chance to qualify if they can beat Durban by a heft margin.Match Details Venue:- Boland Park, Paarl Match Day- Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 05:30 PM IST Read further for NMG vs PR Team News & NMG vs PR Playing 11

NMG vs PR Dream11 Team
1] OpenersCameron Delport will open the batting. While the swashbuckling Aussie has not yet set the stage on fire thus far, he still is the third-highest run-scorer for Paarl Rocks [113 runs at 28.25].Fantasy Tip:- Jason Roy has been underwhelming thus far. However, the English opener has been in outstanding form coming into the tournament. You can go for him in your Grand League team.2] Middle-order
Faf du Plessis [312 runs at 62.40] has played a crucial part in Paarl Rocks campaign. The Protea skipper was at it again in the last game, spearheading the run-chase with an imperious 34-ball-61. He’ll lead the middle-order along with the likes of Ben Duckett [198 runs at 33.00], who scored a 32-ball-47 in the last game.
Other Options- Heino Kuhn [140 runs at 28.00]
Both Rudi Second [99 runs at 19.80] and Mosehle [80 runs at 20.00] have not had a particularly good tournament. But, I’ll go with Second, purely because, he bats at the top of the order.
JJ Smuts [208 runs, 7 wickets] has led the side from the front, contributing in both facets of the game. He will also spearhead the opening department with Delport.
Other than Smutts, Dwayne Bravo [7 wickets at 17.28] will be the other all-rounder in my Team along with Grant Thompson, who scored a match-winning 71 in the last game.Other options:- Chris Morris, David Wiese
Kerwin Mungroo claimed 3-29 for the Paarl Rocks in the last game while Tabraiz Shamsi, with nine wickets, is the leading wicket-taker. Sisanada Magala [6 wickets at 25.16] and Imran Tahir [4 wickets] are good choices from NMG.
JJ Smuts opens the batting and has been more than handy with the ball. He, along with Faf du Plessis are good choices for the captain’s position.Team 01
