NB Bay Giants Team News & Playing 11

The Giants will bank on the likes of JJ Smuts, Ben Duckett and Heino Kuhn when it comes to batting. Duckett and Kuhn have already made their mark with the bat. While the former struck a 45-ball 75 against the Jozi Stars, the latter cracked 55 off 35 balls in the last game against Cape Town Blitz. Skipper Smuts has scored just 8 runs from the two games and the team will be hoping that he finds form in this match. Chris Morris, with his big-hitting ability, is an important figure down the order. The all-rounder took two wickets last time and he will have a major role to play with the ball as well. Ryan McLaren has three wickets in the only T20I he has played at this ground and he along with Imran Tahir, who is currently sixth in the ICC T20I bowling rankings, will be the key men in the team’s bowling attack.

Durban Heat Team News & Playing 11

The opening pair of Hashim Amla and Morne van Wyk is the key for Durban Heat in terms of batting. Both have had decent starts in both the matches but neither has gone on to convert those starts into something big. It will be crucial for the team that at least one of them makes a heavy contribution at the top. David Miller is another danger man in this line-up. Khaya Zondo and Albie Morkel are batting well and their roles will become even more important should the Heat lose early wickets. Kyle Abbott, Marchant de Lange and Keshav Maharaj have done a good job with the ball, and it will be up to these three to put pressure on the Giants. While Maharaj starred with a three-wicket haul against Cape Town Blitz, Abbott is coming on the back of a four-fer against Tshwane Spartans. The Heat will also hope for a better performance from Vernon Philander who has been slightly on the expensive side.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants will be playing at their home ground, but that won’t give them an edge since they will be playing here for the first time in this tournament. However, they will have the support of the crowd behind them. The Giants lost their previous match to Cape Town Blitz and they will be eager to get one more win under their belt. Durban Heat, on the other hand, are coming off a win over Tshwane Spartans and they will look to build on the momentum they have gained.
