CTB vs NMG Dream11 Predictions

Mzansi Super League, 2018

Cape Town Blitz vs Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, Match 07 | CTB vs NMG Dream11 Team

The seventh match of the 2018 edition of the Mzansi Super League will see Cape Town Blitz square off against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in what is expected to be a clash of the Titans at the picturesque Newlands in Cape Town.

Both sides aim to continue with the winning momentum

Both teams have got off to an imperious start in the tournament.

While Nelson Mandela Super Giants overcame Jozi Stars by five wickets after their bowling unit led by skipper JJ Smuts (3-20) restricted Jozi Stars to 5-127 which was chased down with ease thanks to Ben Duckett’s 45-ball-75.

Cape Town Blitz, on the other hand, capped off their second successive win of the tournament thanks to Asif Ali’s swashbuckling 33-ball-80 to chase down 158 in 19.1 overs. They would, however, hope that the lower-middle order offers some support unlike what they did against Durban Heat.

All in all, it is expected to be a battle of the Titans, as both sides will look to continue with the winning momentum as the Proteas superstars are all set to feature for the first time.
