Match Details :

Date : 21/11/2019
Time : 9 PM IST.
MSL Match No.12 between Tshwane vs Durban who are the most effected by rains this MSL. Both team’s have 2 No Results out of 3 games so far with Tshwane winning the one whereas Durban losing the only match they’ve played so far.
Pitch Report :
Centurion is known for runs,it’s a good batting deck. Last game here we saw Tshwane being 33/4 but that’s not really how the pitch fares here. Can be one off game where Tshwane didn’t get their batting right because it was their first game,now that they’ve sorted,they should be going well in this pitch,it assists pace under lights i.e the team defending.
Tshwane should be sticking to their XI. The role of Donavon Ferriera would be playing at 3 if Tshwane lose a wkt early which keeps AB away from new ball,if Elgar & DeBruyn puts up decent partnership at the top then Donavon will be demoted just like the last game.
Durban can bring in Dupavillon who is a bowling Allrounder who could give them depth in batting for Subrayen who went for runs last game or they could be sticking to the same xi to give them another game.
Alex Hales form has been a big concern,he wasn’t really doing well in the CPL & here he started off with a duck.
Playing XI :
Elgar,DeBruyn,Ferriera,DeVilliers,Klaasen,Biljon,Vander Merwe, TCurran, Morne,Lungi,Sipamla.
Dream 11 team :
WK : Klaasen,Vilas
Batters : DeVilliers(C),DeBruyn(vc),Miller,Lubbe.
All-rounders : Phehlukwayo,Vander Merwe.
Bowlers : TCurran,Abbott,Morkel.
Elgar is not someone who is a consistent in any format,so you can go with Vilas in his place as Vilas is a good batsman & plays at 4 besides Kyle Abbott is a very good new ball bowler.
Looking at Tshwane bowling it won’t be any easy for Durban batters.
Captain options : AB,Elgar,DeBruyn.
VC Options : Lubbe,Vilas,Miller,Andile,TCurran.
Grand League Tips :
* Siboto,Curran,Andile,Bopara are good Captain options.
* Siboto bowls at death & if Durban bowls first he might get good amount of wickets where Tshwane’s lower order middle is hit or miss.
* Andile death bowler besides bats at 7,good enough to be C.
* Donavon Ferriera is WK batsman who can bat at 3 if an early wkt falls.
* Dane Vilas has done decently well in MSL last season,also looked good this t20 blast,he’s a very good option for C in GL besides he can give keeping points.
