CTB vs DUR Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match
Kingsmead, Durban, November 18 at 02:30 PM IST
After an enthralling win in the tournament opener against a top class side Tshwane Spartans, the high on confidence Cape Town Blitz will next face the Durban Heat led by the experienced hard-hitting all-rounder Albie Morkel.
In their opening game, Cape Town Blitz were all over their opponents and agonizingly tamed them by 49 runs. Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz’s ferocious 59 off 37 and wicket-keeper Kyle Verreynne’s unbeaten 53 helped them post a formidable 180 for the loss of 4 wickets.
Their bowling was outstanding as they kept Tshwane batsmen at bay and didn’t let them score freely. Even though, Tshwane’s skipper ‘Mr.360’ AB de Villiers who played a competitive game since announcing his retirement from International cricket in June, got a breezing 50 to his name but it wasn’t enough for his side to cross the line. Ferisco Adams snared 3 wickets for 28 runs while all the other bowlers got one apiece.
This would be the opening game for Durban Heat and facing a formidable unit of Cape Town Blitz will definitely be an uphill task for them. They possess a core strength in their batting line-up with the likes of Morne Van Wyk, David Miller, Hashim Amla, Temba Bavuma and with Albie Morkel at the helm they do have match-winners in their side.
Their bowling will be led by the charismatic Afghan spinner Rashid Khan who was their premiere pick in the auctions. Marchant de Lange, Kyle Abbott, Vernon Philander, Keshav Maharaj etc will be forming a formidable bowling unit for the Durban Heats.
