Cape Town Blitz vs Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, 7th Match Preview
The 12th match of the season will see the Cape Town Blitz going against the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at the St. George’s Park in Port Elizabeth.
This would be the second instance when the two teams will go head to head. The first match between the two sides took place at the Newlands in Capetown where the Blitz blazed away with a win by 12 runs.
Janeman Malan was the hero of that game as he scored a gritty 57 off 39 deliveries which included 10 fours and a maximum. He along with Andile Phehlukwayo (28 off 22) stitched an important stand which helped them go past 170.
In reply, the Nelson Mandela Giants had a horrible start as they were reduced to 13 for the loss of two wickets in 4 overs. A 3rd wicket stand for 55 runs helped them a bit but it wasn’t enough to get away from the loss.
Venue- St. George’s Park, Port Elizabeth
