Durban’s Super Giants vs Pretoria Capitals Preview
Pretoria Capitals will be looking to continue their form when they face off Durban’s Super Giants away from home. Let’s take a look at two competitors ahead of their match on Friday.
Durban’s Super Giants
Durban’s Super Giants have played four matches, winning two of those and losing as many. They’re coming off a 10-run defeat against Paarl Royals, where Heinrich Klaasen fought hard with 56 not-out in 39 balls but couldn’t get his team over the line.
Klaasen, Quinton de Kock and Kyle Mayers hold the key in the batting department. The Super Giants would hope for better results from all-rounders Dwaine Pretorius, Jason Holder and Keshav Maharaj. Reece Topley and Prenelan Subrayen have been pretty good with the ball.

Pretoria Capitals have been in terrific form, winning three out of four matches. In the most recent fixture, they romped their way to a six-wicket victory over Joburg Super Kings, chasing 123 in 13 overs to grab the bonus point.
Phil Salt and Will Jacks have provided great starts at the top of the order while Jimmy Neesham and Wayne Parnell have done well at the back end. Pretoria will be stronger once Rilee Rossouw and Theunis de Bruyn start firing. The bowling attack of Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell and Adil Rashid has been potent, with Neesham also making an impact.
Squad: Philip Salt (wk), Will Jacks, Rilee Rossouw, Theunis de Bruyn, Shane Dadswell, James Neesham, Wayne Parnell (c), Migael Pretorius, Eathan Bosch, Adil Rashid, Anrich Nortje
