Match 6 of SA20 will see Pretoria Capitals hosting Sunrisers Eastern Cape in SuperSport Park in Centurion on Saturday. Notably, both teams will be facing each other in a space of 48 hours. In their previous encounter, the Capitals registered a comfortable win against the Aiden Markram-led side. Pretoria Capitals are currently sitting in 2nd spot with 4 points.
The pitch at SuperSport Park provides a lot of assistance to fast bowlers. The pacers will get a good bounce and carry from the pitch. However, the outfield is lightning-quick, which means batters will get value for their shots.
Sunrisers Eastern Cape
Despite JJ Smuts brilliant half-century, Sunrisers fell short of the target in their first match against the Capitals. The middle order couldn't contribute much to the game. The team will be hoping for a better show from the middle order, including skipper Aiden Markram, who fell cheaply in the last game. Sunrisers' star bowler Marco Jansen also disappointed in the first game as the pacer went for 31 runs in his 3 overs. However, despite the defeat, the management is likely to go with the same XI in this match as well.

Pretoria Capitals made a perfect start to their campaign as the side registered a 23-run win in their first game. After the batters helped the side post a big total of 193, bowlers did the rest as they restricted the Sunrisers to 170/5. Express pacer Anrich Nortje was the pick of the bowlers as he picked 2 wickets while giving away just 18 runs. Phil Salt is another key player for the Pretoria Capitals.
