Nelson Mandela Bay Giants vs Paarl Rocks, Match 29 | NMG vs PR WHO WILL WIN
The key parameter to judge whether a tournament is successful or not is when we are down to the closing stages of the tournament, we still do not know the makeup of the knockout stage- the Mzansi Super League certainly passes the parameter with aplomb.
So, we are down to the final week of the Mzansi Super League and we still do not know who will challenge table-toppers Cape Town Blitz in the playoffs. Four of the five remaining teams are vying to lock in their names into the top-3 and with a plethora of permutations and combinations in the air, the remaining two group games boast of everything that can whet the appetite of a cricket fan.
The first of those two matches will see Nelson Mandela Bay Giants square off against the Rocks at Boland Park in Paarl.
The Bay Giants would have consolidated their play into the playoffs had they won their last game against Tshwane Spartans. But an insipid batting performance that resulted in them failing to chase down 4-165 after Andrew Birch [2-29] and Shaun von Berg [3-19] wrecked through their batting unit with the exception of Smutts  and Ben Duckett.
Their opponents in Paarl Rocks, on the other hand, are coming off a much-needed win over the Jozi Stars in their last fixture. Coming into the previous game after having suffered three losses in the past four matches, the Rocks managed to break the rut with a comprehensive six-wicket win over Jozi Stars.
As has been the trend, the run-chase  was spearheaded by skipper Faf du Plessis. The South African skipper amassed a whirlwind 34-ball-61 and along with Grant Thomson  stitched a 120-run stand for the third wicket.
This will be the second meeting between these two sides. The first encounter was won by Nelson Mandela Bay Giants by a margin of 48 runs, but it would count for nothing as a do-or-die encounter looms over the two sides.
