Paarl Royals vs Durban’s Super Giants – Match Predictions

Durban’s Super Giants are coming off two straight wins and do have a strong side. But Paarl Royals’ only win so far came at this very venue and they’ll be looking to maximize the home advantage. With a couple of changes, the Royals could strengthen the bowling unit while the batting line-up remains solid.

Our Prediction: Durban’s Super Giants to hit most sixes in this match with the odds of 6/5(2.20).

Probable Wickets

Paarl Royals vs Durban’s Super Giants Preview

Paarl Royals will be looking for revenge, having lost to Durban’s Super Giants on Sunday. Let’s take a look at both sides ahead of their return fixture on Tuesday.

Paarl Royals

Paarl Royals have played three games so far, winning against Joburg Super Kings and losing to MI Cape Town and Durban’s Super Giants. They went down by 27 runs in the previous game at Durban, despite Eoin Morgan’s fighting 64 off 37.

Jason Roy and Morgan finding some form is good news for them but the Royals will expect more from their skipper David Miller and Jos Buttler. The bowling was depleted in the previous game with Tabraiz Shamsi sitting out due to an injury. The Royals could bring in Corbin Bosch or Andile Phehlukwayo in place of Ferisco Adams.

Squad: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (wk), Wihan Lubbe, Dane Vilas, David Miller (c), Eoin Morgan, Ferisco Adams, Evan Jones, Imran Manack, Bjorn Fortuin, Lungi Ngidi

Durban’s Super Giants

Durban’s Super Giants lost their first game to Joburg Super Kings but bounced back strongly to defeat MI Cape Town by five wickets. On Sunday, they defeated the Royals on the back of a strong batting performance.

Kyle Mayers and Quinton de Kock have been superb, with Wiaan Mulder and Heinrich Klaasen also firing in the previous outing. They opened with Mulder to split up two left-handers and it paid dividends. The bowling attack will rely on Reece Topley, Prenelan Subrayen and Keshav Maharaj.

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