MSL Match No.23 between Nelson Mandela bay giants and Tshwane Spartans. Faceoff between 2nd & 3rd in the table.Both team’s coming into this game with a defeat in their previous game,infact NMG after being unbeaten first 5 games,now they have lost 2 in 2 whereas Tshwane who were unbeaten untill their 7th game,lost vs Paarl in their last game,so both teams will be rearing to get back into winning track especially NMG.
Pitch Report :
As tournament progressed,the pitch has slowed down. We saw in the last where bowlers getting enough assistance with spinners getting more and every spinner putting up a decent contribution. With Tshwane & NMG bowling which are pretty good,the match is expected to be a 155-165 one.
Team news :
Jason Roy has been inconsistent so far,his last 6 innings reads 0 31 1 50 0 36 which says he has been bad one game,clicking in the next.
We may see NMG trying to get Burger back in the side for Nyaku,who went out doing nothing wrong but to accommodate Beuran.
Tshwane batting has been so inconsistent this MSL just like the last one,AB getting into touch & Tshwane is depending on him to deliver every other game since Elgar-Debruyn p’ship helped Tshwane win their first game this season.
Van Biljon has done exceptionally well batting at 6,delivering when matters.
With DeBruyn going through bad patch,we might see TST bringing in Tony de Zorzi to open.
Playing XI :
NMG : Roy Dunk Smutts Kuhn Doeschate Marco Morris Dala Tahir Beuran Burger
TST : Elgar TonyDeZorzi ABD Klaasen Van Biljon Mulder Merwe Curran Morne Sipamla Ngidi.
NMG vs TST Dream 11 team :
WK : Klaasen Kuhn
Batters : AB(VC) Smutts(c) Dunk
All-rounders : Merwe Morris
Bowlers : Tahir Beuran Curran Morne
C options : Smutts AB Morris
Vc options : Dunk Elgar Klaasen Curran Merwe
Smutts is the safest C option for small leagues and he has been very consistent too.
AB scoring some good runs in the last 3 games makes him a decent option for C.
If NMG bowl first, Morris is a very good option as C because he bowls at death.
Grand league Tips :
Tony de Zorzi might get a game in place of struggling DeBruyn and if he does,he’s a very good option for C as he also opens. He got the capability to do well,an year back we saw him scoring a ton in UAE in a t20 competition for Titans.
Kuhn is another option C,he hasn’t done well so far and if he plays at 4,he’s a good option.
Breetzke if comes in then he’s a pretty good option.
Beuran has the capability to get 3-4 wkts in SA domestics,not many will pick him because he hasn’t done great so far so he is a good option.
With pitch assisting bowlers enough & how Tshwane has been collapsing every other game,likes of Tahir Dala makes a good punt.
