Mzansi 29th Match Squads Comparison
Faf du Plessis’ men have been a case of so near yet so far this tournament. While they have played some great games it is their bad performances in between that have cost them high. Their poor start in the tournament where they lost back to back games has led to their downfall. They are already out of the contentions for the playoffs but come to this game having overwhelmed the Jozi Stars in a nail biting finish. With the last game of the season a mere formality du Plessis would like his boys to end the tournament on the right note in front of their home crowd and take revenge for their earlier loss against the Bay Giants.
Aiden Markram’s struggle with the bat has been terrible news for the side. Cameron Delport his opening partner also threw it away in the last game. It is in the middle order where the batting is strong for the side. Faf du Plessis and Grant Thomson are in great form and with Dwayne Bravo in the finishing act they have the right balance in their batting. In terms of their bowling attack Dane Paterson and Kerwin Mungroo are in good form. Tabraiz Shamsi adds the right variety to the bowling attack and can cause trouble for the opposition in the next game.
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants
JJ Smuts’ side have already qualified for the playoffs after the good start they had in the tournament. But there have been few concerns for the side in the last couple of games where they have lost poorly against Jozi Stars and Tshwane Spartans. The side suddenly seems to have dipped in form which isn’t great news as they are entering the business end of the tournament. The upcoming game would be their last chance to overcome weaknesses and Smuts would hope his side overcomes the disappointments and gets back to winning ways. They need to make it to the playoffs with a win under their belt.
Batting has been a strong area for the team especially the form of Smuts and Jason Roy. If they fire at the top the middle order that includes Rudi Second, Ben Duckett and Heino Kuhn can put up a big score and take it away from the opposition. But the batsmen have shown signs of fragility in some of the games and this can cost them dear. The bowling attack has looked good for the side for most of the tournament. Chris Morris and Lizaad Williams have bowled well in most games and if Imran Tahir can find his rhythm they have a good bowling attack to defeat their opponents.
