We are finally into the last leg of the Mzasi Super League, South Africa's Premier T20 Competition, and things are getting tighter with every passing match. Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and Paarl Rocks occupy the top two spots, and will be looking to keep it that way. In the next match of the tournament, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants are set to take on Tshwane Spartans, who are looking to finish at the top as well. The two teams will meet at St George's Park, Port Elizabeth on Tuesday, December 3rd. Conidering that finishing among the top two teams has an added incentive, both the sides would strive hard in this upcoming match and a cracker of a contest is certainly on the cards.
Placed comfortably at the second spot on the ladder, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have done pretty well in the tournament so far. They have played seven matches, have registered wins in four of them, and have a brilliant net run-rate of 0.721. The Giants, however, appear to be losing the momentum they had in the first half of the tournament. All of their two losses have come in their last two matches.
They got off to a super start in the tournament and had a streak of five unbeaten outings, but two back to back losses has certainly put pressure back on them. However, they'd not want to press the panic button yet. They are still pretty much in contention to finish at the top of the table and a win against Tshwane Spartans should do them a world of good.
In their last match, their batsmen did pretty well to put up a decent score on the board. Ben Dunk, Jason Roy, and JJ Smuts all got decent starts, but none of them could convert it into a big one. However, the trio scored runs at a pretty fast pace and that allowed the likes of Heino Kuhn and Ryan ten Doeschate a bit of extra time to settle down in the middle. Their middle-order failed to get going as well and despite a strong start, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants ended up scoring just 173, which was certainly a good score, but could have been a lot more had their batsmen batted a bit more responsibly.
Given the form Durban Heat were in, defending the total would not have been easy and hence it proved. Beuran Hendricks removed WB Marshall early in the innings, but was a little too expensive. Barring Imran Tahir and Chris Morris, none of their bowlers proved to be effective as Durham Heat chased the total down in the 19th over with six wickets in hand.

Safe to say, the Spartans have been the unluckiest team in the tournament. Despite losing just one match in the tournament so far, the least of all teams, they are at the third spot. Rain ensured that they had to share points in three of their matches, which they could have otherwise won. They have 19 points to their name in seven matches and their net run-rate of 0.714 is an evidence of how dominant they have been.
Just like the Bay Giants, the Spartans are coming off a loss in their previous match and would like to get back to the winning ways. Chasing a smallish total of 152, their batting fell like a pack of cards as they ended up with just 142 runs on the board. None of their star batsmen could get going on a sticky surface. PJ van Biljon fought hard with a personal score of 62 off 42 deliveries, but his knock could take Spartans only to 142.
Earlier with the ball, Spartans continued their brilliant show with the ball as they never allowed Cape Town Blitz to get going. Morene Morkel, Lungi Ngidi, and PWA Mulder were all pretty impressive and they picked up four wickets between them and gave away 68 runs in their 11 overs combined.
