Match Details :
Venue : Port Elizabeth
Date : 23/11/2019
Time : 4 PM IST.
MSL Match No.14 between NMG and Durban at Port Elizabeth.
NMG vs DUR Dream11:We have seen quite a few games getting washed out due to rain, obviously one of the most affected due to rain been Durban Heat where 3 out of their 4 games getting abondoned with losing one of their game. Durban can just blame their luck for not opening an account yet in MSL even after 4 games.
Other side we have NMG who are at the top of the table with 3 wins in 4 games,their most recent last over thriller win coming against the Blitz.
Pitch Report :
It was a high scoring game in the previous encounter in this pitch where NMG chased down 186 vs a fine bowling attack of CTB. Expect the pitch to play even better tomorrow considering it’s a day game.
Team news :
We have seen quite a few surprising changes this MSL,teams are rotating players mostly.
Chances of Breetzke going back to the bench and Farhan coming in is a possible change from NMBG.
With bowlers doing decent job,I don’t see the reason they’ll change the attack.
Durban Heat can bring in Erwee back for Marshall who got a golden duck against Tshwane.
Not expecting any other changes.
Playing XI :
NMG : Roy Dunk Smutts Kuhn Farhan Marais Morris Nyaku Tahir Dala Burger.
DUR : Erwee Hales Lubbe Vilas Miller Bopara Andile Jansen Maharaj Abbott Siboto.
WK : Vilas, Kuhn
Batters : Roy, Smutts(c), Lubbe, Miller
Allrounders : Andile, Morris(vc)
Bowlers : Tahir, Dala, Abbott.
You can also pick Dunk in place of Vilas considering how good Dunk has been so far this MSL but I considered not to have every batter from NMG considering it’s a batting pitch,I tried to sneak in Vilas who does decently well at 4,also Abbott is someone who is good with the new ball.
Risked Hales for his form,he has never looked himself since few months.
Smutts is a sure shot C option considering his batting form.
C options : Smutts,Roy,Morris,Hales.
VC Options : Miller,Andile,Vilas.
Grand league Tips :
Dane Vilas is a pretty good batter in such leagues and only around 20% have picked him,so picking him as C is worth a good punt,he could also give you keeping points.
Not many have picked Hales due to his current form,but we know what he’s capable of and he’s worth it.
Farhan might come in tomorrow and if Kyle does his new ball job,we could see Farhan in early,over the years Farhan has been a top contender in SA domestics.
Erwee can be the other option,he has good capability & he has shown it last MSL.
