As both teams are coming off good performances, the clash between Cape Town Blitz and Jozi Stars is expected to be closely contested.
Having beaten both Durban Heat and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in the last two matches, Jozi Stars have momentum on their side. At the same time, Cape Town Blitz are playing at their home ground at Newlands where they have won both of the last two matches. Additionally, Cape Town Blitz mauled Jozi Stars with a 62-run defeat in the reverse fixture at Johannesburg. Cricket Betting Tips
Cape Town Blitz will depend on the opening pair of Quinton de Kock and Jaaneman Malan. Both these batsmen find a place in the top three run-getters of the tournament. While de Kock scored 74 against Jozi Stars, Malan struck 66 against them in the last encounter. de Kock’s explosive century against Tshwane Spartans must also have given him a lot of confidence.
