Joburg Super Kings vs Durban’s Super Giants Preview

It’s a crucial fixture for both Joburg Super Kings and Durban’s Super Giants, who are sitting outside the top four as the race for the semifinals gets more intense. Let’s have a look at two teams ahead of their clash on Tuesday.

Joburg Super Kings

Joburg Super Kings have won three and lost three matches. Their net run-rate of -1.128 could be a huge issue for them down the line. They’re coming off a five-wicket win over Sunrisers Eastern Cape, where they took 19.4 overs to chase down 128.

Leus du Plooy has been superb for them with the bat while Faf du Plessis has also shown form. But Reeza Hendricks and Donovan Ferreira need to step up. Their bowling attack looks good with the likes of Alzarri Joseph, Aaron Phangiso, Gerald Coetzee and Maheesh Theekshana.

Squad: Reeza Hendricks, Faf du Plessis (c), Neil Brand, Leus du Plooy, Donavon Ferreira (wk), Sibonelo Makhanya, Romario Shepherd, Gerald Coetzee, Alzarri Joseph, Maheesh Theekshana, Aaron Phangiso

Durban’s Super Giants

Durban’s Super Giants are at the bottom of the table with only two wins out of six. They have an awful net run-rate of -1.773 and are coming off three straight losses. Most recently, they were hammered by 124 runs by Sunrisers Eastern Cape.

Durban’s batting has been a major issue for them in recent matches and the likes of Quinton de Kock, Kyle Mayers and Dwaine Pretorius need to step up. The bowling attack also lacks penetration. They played three spinners in the last game but Reece Topley should return for this fixture.

Squad: Kyle Mayers, Wiaan Mulder, Quinton de Kock (c & wk), Matthew Breetzke, Heinrich Klaasen, Dwaine Pretorius, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Keshav Maharaj, Prenelan Subrayen, Reece Topley
