MI Cape Town
MI Cape Town have had a decent 2023 SA20 campaign so far with three wins and three losses. The Mumbai Indians-owned franchise has a slightly imbalanced squad as they lack multiple stars in their lineup. However, the likes of Dewald Brevis have stepped up for the MI. Their bowling attack, meanwhile, can be considered to be one of the best.
