Durban Super Giants defeated MI Cape Town in their opening match of the second edition of the SA20. Heinrich Klassen stole the show with his blistering knock of 85 runs off 35 deliveries, as the Super Giants won the match by 11 runs (DLS method). This win will give the Keshav Maharaj-led side a lot of confidence ahead of their upcoming game against the defending champions Sunrisers Eastern Cape on January 13 at St George’s Park in Gqeberha.

The Aiden Markram-led side, on the other hand, will be hungry after their opening game of the season was called off due to rain. They have a strong middle order, with Markram, Tristan Stubbs and Sarel Erwee in the mix. Batting at the top of the order, Dawid Malan too can prove to be dangerous.

When it comes to bowling, Marco Jansen, Liam Dawson and Brydon Carse can prove to be threatening. Dawson had a sensational season in domestic cricket while Jansen has been in terrific form since the ODI World Cup.

Durban Super Giants too have a brilliant squad. Quinton de Kock was poor in the opening game as the keeper-batter would be gunning to get going against Sunrisers. They have a very strong bowling unit as Keshav Maharaj, Reece Topley and Richard Gleeson can give a tough time to the hosts in the match. 

Predicted playing XI of Sunrisers Eastern Cape and Durban Super Giants:

Sunrisers Eastern Cape – Dawid Malan, Adam Rossington, Aiden Markram (c), Sarel Erwee, Andile Simelane, Tristan Stubbs (wk), Marco Jansen, Liam Dawson, Ayabulela Gqamane, Brydon Carse, Simon Harmer

Durban Super Giants – Quinton de Kock (wk), Matthew Breetzke, Nicholas Pooran, Heinrich Klaasen, Wiaan Mulder, Prenelan Subrayen, Dwaine Pretorius, Keemo Paul, Keshav Maharaj (c), Reece Topley, Richard Gleeson
