Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants started their Mzansi Super League 2018 journey on a winning note defeating the Jozi Stars at Johannesburg. They lost their next match against Cape Town Blitz chasing 144 in 16 overs.

The win in their last match against Durban Heat has made it 2 wins in 3 matches for the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants.

The positives from the last match were the performances by their opening batsmen JJ Smuts and Marco Marais. The two batsmen were out for 0 in their 1st match and under 10 runs in the 2nd match.

JJ Smuts’ 62 not out along with Marco Marais’ 42 ensure the NMBG cruised to victory with ease.

Junior Dala was the man of the match with his exceptional bowling. Dala’s economy rate was of 4.00 as he picked 2 wickets along with Chris Morris. It was a comeback from Junior Dala as well, as he had gone for 37 runs without a wicket in their 2nd match against the Cape Town Blitz.

Chris Morris is consistent with wickets picking 2 wickets in each of the last 2 matches.

Their successful chase in the last match was at the venue where average 1st innings score was 118. Here are some more things to consider –

The match venue for this game is SuperSport Park, where average 1st innings score is 167. NMBG middle order has failed in the high scoring match at Cape Town.

It was their openers who made the chase easy in the last match. While in the previous games where the openers were out cheaply, the burden of scoring runs was on Ben Duckett and Heino Kuhn in the 1st 2 matches.  If their middle order is exposed against Tshwane Spartans, NBMG could again lose out on a winning opportunity.


The Tshwane Spartans have won 1 in their 3 matches. While Tshwane Spartans haven’t been great at chasing, their batsmen came all guns blazing at Paarl where they scored 203-5 batting first. Tshwane Spartans too are dependent on a select few batsmen in their batting line-up.

The top order consisting of Gihahn Cloete, Theunis de Bruyn, and AB de Villiers have performed well so far and a lot is expected of these batsmen in every match.

Though the Spartans, have batsmen like Rilee Rossouw and Dean Elgar in their squad who were dropped in the last match after the two batsmen failed to score runs and play a match winning innings as is expected of them.

Tshwane Spartans have also experimented with their batting order, having Tony de Zorzi open the innings in the 1st match, then dropping him to number 6, and in the last match playing him at number 3.

Zorzi hasn’t scored over 10 runs in any of these positions and if the skipper AB de Villiers decides to go the same route with Zorzi as he did with Rossouw and D Elgar, he might drop Tony Zorzi in the next match.

This venue will be good opportunity for the likes of AB de Villiers, Gihahn Cloete, and Rilee Rossouw if he plays, to score runs.

The Tshwane Spartans bowling hasn’t been great so far when it comes to defending and the one match they won defending against Paarl Rocks was by 1 run.

The Tshwane Spartans seem to be struggling to find the right combinations in both the batting and bowling department. It might take a few more matches for them to figure out the way ahead in this league.
