About the Match

Mzansi Super League, South Africa's premier T20 tournament is really picking up the pace and get more exciting with every passing day. The excitement build in the last couple of days can be validated by the results of the last two matches. The last couple of matches went all the way down to the wire. Tshwane Spartans emerged victorious in a high-scoring thriller by a margin of just one run. Up next, they'll be meeting Durham Heat who suffered a heart-breaking defeat in their opening game. They are a spin-heavy side and considering how effective spinners have been in recent T20 matches, the battle between Spartans' batting and Durham's spinners is going to be super-exciting.

Match Preview

Durban Heat

Spartans just escaped with a one-run win in their last match against Paarl Rocks which went right till the end. Their batting did superbly with the bat before bowlers held their nerve in the final overs. It was a see-saw match which swung in both directions before it was finally concluded with Spartans ending up on the right side of the result.

It never looked like the game would go down till the end when the Spartans batters were in command. De Bruyn and Cloete showed excellent technique and power-hitting as they both rattled Paarl bowlers. The Spartans had an excellent score of 101 without any chips down at the half-way stage just before De Bruyn departed. With de Villiers walking in next, there was no respite for Paarl bowlers. Although De Villiers quickly after scoring a quick-fire thirty, he did the damage.

Bowling-wise, Tshwane Spartans did well in patches, but the knock of Cameron Delpot never allowed them to get a grasp of the game. On a surface which didn't have much assitance for the quick bowlers, Sipmala did well to remove Michael Klinger in the fourth overs. However, poor bowling from Birch and Kleinveldt in the overs to follow dragged the game till the end before they narrowly escaped with a win.

Durban Heat Starting Lineup

Mv Wyk, Hashim Amla, Khaya Zondo, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Albie Morkel, K Maharaj, VD Philander, Marchant de Lange, KY Abbott, T Bokako.


Tshwane Spartans

Unlike the Spartans, the Heat could not prevail in a closely fought game as Asif Ali stole the show with a 33-ball 80 which took away the game from them. Earlier with the bat, they could never get going with the bat as Morne van Wyk, Temba Bavuma, and Sarel Erwee were all dismissed inside the first half.

Hashim Amla, too, could not do anything special as he was trapped in front. Albie Morkel and Khaya Zondo tried to resurrect their innings and were successful as they were able to put together a total of 71 in just 53 deliveries and played a vital role in taking the team's total to a competitive one.

Heat's bowlers started off brilliantly as they removed all the main batsmen within the first half and kept it economical. Just about when the required run rate was pushing ten, Asif Ali wreaked havoc on Heat's bowlers as they had no clue for Ali's exuberance. Eventually, they failed to defend total, although they did well to bring it close.

Tshwane Spartans Starting Lineup

Gihahn Cloete, Tony de Zorzi, Theunis de Bruyn, AB de Villiers, Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Robbie Frylinck, BMAJ Mendis, Rory Kleinveldt, Lutho Sipamla, Andrew Birch.

Match Prediction

Both the teams have lost one game in the tournament, but the Spartans, having lost the first match, bounced back wonderfully in the second game. They have a good batting unit but need plenty of improvement in the bowling department. On the other hand, the Heat have excellent resources in the bowling, but their batting appears to be a little iffy. Considering the performance of the two teams so far and the teams on paper, the Tshwane Spartans are more likely to prevail in the upcoming encounter.
