Cape Town Blitz Team News & Playing 11
The team will look to the likes of Dawid Malan, Asif Ali and Kyle Verreynne to turn it on with the bat in this Wednesday’s clash. Asif announced his arrival in the MSL with a match-winning 33-ball 80 against Durban Heat and he will be expected to make another strong contribution here. Verreynne cracked an unbeaten half-century in the tournament opener at this venue while skipper Malan after two underwhelming performances will look to make up with a big knock. With the ball, Cape Town Blitz will bank on the pace trio of Dale Steyn, Anrich Nortje and Ferisco Adams to do the damage. Nortje has taken five wickets in the two games, including a four-fer in the last match, and he is expected to finish with the best bowling figures again. Adams had a good outing at this ground against the Spartans and he will look to replicate that performance here.

NB Bay Giants Team News & Playing 11
Ben Duckett was the star performer with the bat for the Giants against Jozi Stars. The top-order batsman belted 75 runs off 45 balls to steer his side to victory and the team will be hoping that he continues from where he left off. Apart from him, the Giants will also need heavy contributions from their skipper JJ Smuts at the top and Christiaan Jonker in the middle order. Smuts will also have a big role to play when it comes to bowling. He notched up three wickets against the Stars and he could trouble the Blitz with his left-arm spin. Junior Dala and Ryan McLaren will be the biggest threats among the seam bowlers. Dala has three wickets in the only T20I he has played at this ground and he also bagged impressive figures of 1-19 from four overs in the last game.

Cape Town Blitz vs NB Bay Giants Prediction
Both the teams are coming into this match on the back of a win in their last match. Cape Town Blitz, however, have the upper hand as they will be playing at their home ground where they recently outplayed the star-studded Tshwane Spartans in the opening game of the MSL 2018. They will be carrying plenty of momentum as well after winning their first two matches of the season. Nelson Mandela Bay Giants too registered a win in their opening encounter against Jozi Stars and their bowling seems to have a little more variety with the likes of Junior Dala, Aaron Phangiso and Ryan McLaren in their ranks. Although both these teams have performed well so far, we expect the Blitz to secure their third consecutive win on Wednesday.
Final Verdict: Back Cape Town Blitz to beat Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at 1.72 on Betway, 1.80 on Bet365 and 1.82 on Betfair.
