Durban Giants will be up against Paarl Royals in the 8th game of the South Africa T20 League on January 15 (Sunday) at the Kingsmead in Durban. While the Super Giants won their previous game against MI Cape Town by five wickets, Royals also won their match against Joburg Super Kings.
The Royals showed the strength of their bowling unit as they bundled out JSK for just 81 runs and won the game by seven wickets in hand in 10.3 overs. The competition is still at the initial stage and both teams will be hoping to continue their momentum.
Durban Super Giants are most likely to win the toss in the upcoming fixture as they have won once in the last two attempts. Joburg Super Giants have lost the toss on both occasions.
David Miller-led Paarl Royals batted really well in their first game against MI Cape Towns, but their bowlers failed miserably as the opponents chased down the target with a lot of ease. The likes of Eoin Morgan, Jason Roy, Jos Buttler and David Miller have made their batting unit formidable, and the likes of Evan Jones, Ferisco Adams and Bjorn Fortuin performed extremely well in the second game to bundle out Joburg Super Kings at 81. The upcoming fixture is likely to be an exciting affair, but the Royals have a better chance to emerge victorious.
The surface at Kingsmead is expected to favour batters and we can expect sides to put up a good total on board. As per the prediction, 45-55 is likely to be a powerplay score while 1st inning score will be around 165-175.
