NB Bay Giants Team News & Playing 11

With 147 runs each, Morne van Wyk and Khaya Zondo are the leading run-getters for Durban Heat in the MSL 2018. Both scored in 30s last time against Paarl Rocks and they will be expected to score even bigger in this match. David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen have had an ordinary tournament so far and the Heat will be hoping that they are able to find form against the Giants. Rashid Khan, Kyle Abbott and Vernon Philander form the big threats in this bowling attack. Rashid’s inclusion will boost the team’s spin department and the leg-spinner could cause problems for the opposition here with his stump-to-stump bowling. Abbott has taken seven wickets in six matches and he will be the key with the new ball.

Durban Heat Team News & Playing 11

The Giants will look to the likes of Ben Duckett, JJ Smuts and Marco Marais to deliver the goods with the bat. Duckett has been their most consistent batsman and has scored the most runs for them – 149 runs in 6 matches. Skipper Smuts smashed an unbeaten 62 in the reverse encounter against Durban Heat and he will look to come up with a similar performance. With the ball, it will be mainly up to Junior Dala, Chris Morris and Imran Tahir to take wickets and exert pressure on the opposition. Dala and Morris both took two wickets apiece last time against the Heat and the duo is likely to trouble them once again. Tahir has an economy rate of under 7 and the leg-spinner will look to slip in a few quiet overs.

NB Bay Giants vs Durban Heat Betting Odds

Durban Heat are favorites to win this match at odds of 1.75 on Betway, 1.72 on Bet365 and 1.80 on Betfair. Nelson Mandela Bay Giants find themselves as outsiders at a higher price of 1.95 on Betway, 2.10 on Bet365 and 2.02 on Betfair.

NB Bay Giants vs Durban Heat Prediction: Durban Heat have the benefit of playing at their home ground but having faced two defeats in three matches here will not make them feel too confident heading into this match. However, the return of Afghan spin sensation Rashid Khan will definitely give them a ray of hope as he has the ability to win matches for his team on his own. Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have won three of their last four completed matches while the Heat are coming on the back of four consecutive defeats which means there will be a lot more pressure on the latter. The Giants registered a comprehensive win in the reverse encounter and we predict them to emerge victorious once again.
Final Verdict: Back Nelson Mandela Bay Giants to beat Durban Heat at 1.95 on Betway, 2.10 on Bet365 and 2.02 on Betfair.
