Mzansi Super League 2018
Cape Town Blitz vs Durban Heat, 3rd Match Preview
The MSL T20 2018 kick-started the way it was meant to be. When Dawid Malan’s Cape Town Blitz locked horns with AB De Villiers’ Tshwane Spartans yesterday at Cape Town, plenty of fours and sixes and ample of wickets fell. Moreover, it turned out to be the AB vs Cape Town clash. Mr 360 blasted 59 runs off just 30 deliveries including 5 sixes. However, he didn’t get the support from other end and the Spartans lost the match by 49 runs.
Cape Town Blitz had a wonderful outing with both bat and ball in the first game against Tshwane Spartans. Batting first, the fifties from Kyle Verreyne and Mohammad Nawaz helped the side post a defendable 180-4 in the allotted overs.
In response, AB de Villiers (59 of 30) was the only threat in the opposition who to some extent tried to take the game away from Blitz but failed to get support from the other end. As a result, Tshwane Spartans ended at 131-10, falling short by 49 runs.
Now, Cape Town Blitz is all set to meet Albie Morkel’s Durban Heat at Kingsmead on Sunday noon, after registering a win in the opening game. Led by experienced former Proteas all-rounder Albie Morkel, Durban Heat has a mixture of young talent and experienced campaigner in the likes of Tladi Bokako, Brandon Mavuta, Okuhle Cele and Hashim Amla, David Miller, Kyle Abbott.
Hashim Amla is all set to return to the field after a long injury while David Miller will be available from next match. He is currently on Australia tour.

The probable CTB vs DUR playing 11 is listed below.
Wicketkeeper: Kyle Verreynne
Batsmen: Dawid Malan, Sibonelo Makhanya, Janneman Malan
All-rounder: George Linde, Ferisco Adams, Jason Smith
Bowlers: Dane Piedt, Malusi Siboto, M Nawaz, Anrich Nortje (Doubt: Dale Steyn)
Wicketkeeper: Morné van Wyk
Batsmen: Hashim Amla, Khaya Zondo, Temba Bavuma (Doubt: Sarel Erwee)
All-rounder: Albie Morkel
Bowlers: Kyle Abbott, Keshav Maharaj, Marchant de Lange, Vernon Philander (Doubt: Brandon Mavuta, Okuhle Cele, Tladi Bokako, Prenelan Subrayen)
In wicketkeeper, choose from Morne van Wyk and Kyle Verreyne. Kyle scored a fifty in the last game and is in good touch. He also scored a fifty in the practice game.
In batting, Dawid Malan and Janneman Malan are sure shot starters from Cape Town. From Durban Heat, Hashim Amla is set to feature. There’s still doubt over Sarel Erwee.
Fantasy Tip: Don’t pick David Miller and Farhaan Behardien. Both are unavailable.
In all-rounder, Albie Morkel, Frisco Adams and Jason Smith will be a perfect choice. Frisco Adams returned with three wickets in the first encounter against Tshwane Spartans.
Fantasy Tip: Don’t pick Rashid Khan, Andile Phehlukwayo and Husain Talat. All are unavailable.
In bowling, Mohammad Nawaz, Anrich Nortze will be the safe bet. Malusi Siboto can make way for Dale Steyn. Kyle Abbott and Vernon Phillander are favorites to start for Durban Heat.
