MI Cape Town vs Joburg Super Kings – Match Predictions

MI Cape Town have a slightly better side on paper compared to Joburg Super Kings. Their batting unit is depleted with Liam Livingstone’s unavailability but is decent enough. The bowling attack has a great variety and quality. Joburg Super Kings’ top order has struggled in both the games so far while the bowling attack lacks top quality barring Alzarri Joseph.

Probable 6s

MI Cape Town have a destructive and deep batting unit with the likes of Dewald Brevis, Rassie van der Dussen, Sam Curran, Ryan Rickelton and George Linde. They have struck 19 sixes in just two matches. Joburg Super Kings will be dependent on Faf du Plessis, Romario Shepherd and Donovan Ferreira for the powerhitting.

Our Prediction: MI Cape Town to hit most sixes in this match.

Probable Wickets

Rashid Khan will be bowling to an RHB-heavy side of JSK. The Afghan leg-spinner has a stellar record in the format and could be a huge threat in this fixture. He has every chance of finishing as the highest wicket-taker for MI Cape Town. For Joburg Super Kings, Alzarri Joseph is the biggest challenge for MICT. The Afghanistan spinner will be the top bowler for the Super Kings.

Our Prediction: Rashid Khan to be the highest wicket-taker for MI Cape Town.

Man of the Match

Dewald Brevis began the season with a blistering 70 off 41 balls before falling for a duck in the second. But the youngster has the ability to make a big impact on the game. Brevis is a prime contender be the Player of the Match. Other top betting options include Rassie van der Dussen, Olly Stone, Faf du Plessis, Alzarri Joseph and Donovan Ferreira.

Our Prediction: Dewald Brevis to be the Man of the Match.

MI Cape Town vs Joburg Super Kings Preview

MI Cape Town and Joburg Super Kings have played two matches each in the tournament and both are coming off a loss. Let’s take a look at both sides ahead of their match on Saturday.

MI Cape Town

MI Cape Town hammered Paarl Royals by eight wickets and claimed a bonus point in the season opener.

Jofra Archer is unlikely to feature in this game, having already played two matches so expect Kagiso Rabada to come in. They have an excellent bowling attack but lack an off-spin option, although it shouldn’t be an issue in this fixture.

Joburg Super Kings

Joburg Super Kings have some big names from the domestic circuit but the lack of a left handed batter in the top 7 can be a concern as seen in the previous game. The bowling attack has some quality in Alzarri Joseph, George Garton and Aaron Phangiso.

Squad: Reeza Hendricks, Janneman Malan, Faf du Plessis (c), Kyle Verreynne (wk), Lewis Gregory, Donavon Ferreira, Romario Shepherd, George Garton, Alzarri Joseph, Lizaad Williams, Aaron Phangiso
