Match Details :

MSL Match No.17 between Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and Paarl Rocks. Both the teams have had a pretty good tournament so far & it’s a clash between the top 2 in the table. NMG are undefeated in the MSL so far whereas PR have just 1 defeat in 5 games.
Pitch Report :
Port Elizabeth been one such pitch in the tournament where it’s been a pretty good battle between the bat & the ball where both batters & bowlers getting something out from the pitch,maybe a bit leaning towards batting. Last match we saw here NMG pulling off a thriller against Durban & a match before that we saw NMG chasing a 185+ total against a solid bowling unit which suggests pitch is pretty good but it can slow down as the tournament goes on hence more than pacers,the pitch can assist spin.
Team news :
No injury concerns which can assure NMG won’t be tinkering with their winning combination,also every other player stepping up when it’s required.
Paarl Rocks too got nothing to worry about injury. But the form of their skipper has been poor but he’s just about to get a move on & also their overseas signing C Delport who has had a poor MSL so far.
As Paarl don’t have any other option,they might stick with Delport even after his poor run so far.
With Davids,Vince & Pretorius stepping up everytime with the bat so far,Paarl didn’t have to worry much about two of their best batters form.
Mungroo could comeback for Makhanya.

VC Options : Delport Morris Pretorius
You can pick Fortuin inplacs of Delport as the pitch might assist spinners most than expected because it’s a used pitch for several games.
Grand league Tips :
Isuru Udana is picked only by 20% and he’s a worthy C in GL because of his death bowling where he can get you wkt points besides if PR batters don’t do much,he can come in at 7 and score some runs as he did many a times for SL.
Breetzke is another option,this kid is quite a talent, advantage is that he opens,he got the ability to get a good score.
Delport will be ignored for his poor run so Delport as C in GL can do wonders if he finally takes off.
