DUR VS NMG Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Durban, December 05 at 10:30 PM IST

Bottom-placed Durban Heat will welcome Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at Durban in the second fixture of Wednesday’s doubleheader in MSL T20.

Batting has been the main concern for Heat throughout the tournament. In six games, Durban Heat has managed just one win so far. Their only win came against Tshwane Spartans in the second encounter where they clinched 10 runs win under the DLS method. With just four more games remaining, Heat would be hoping to register a couple of wins and salvage their pride. They have been boosted with the return of Rashid Khan. The Afghanistan spinner was taking part in the T10 League in Dubai and has re-joined the squad. 

On the opposite, the high-flying Nelson Mandela Bay Giants faced a crushing 81 runs defeat against Jozi Stars in their last encounter and would be hoping to bounce back strongly. Placed second in the league table, Bay Giants have secured four wins out of seven encounters.

Previous encounter-

When last time both the teams met at Port Elizabeth, Nelson Mandela registered a massive 9 wickets win over Durban Heat. Put into bat, Heat posted 127-6 on the scoreboard with the help of the twenties from Khaya Zondo (26),  Albie Morkel (28), Vernon Philander (26) and Keshav Maharaj (22*). Junior Dala and Chris Morris returned with 2 wickets each for Bay Giants.

In response, Bay Giants chased down the target in 17.3 overs with 9 wickets remaining. Skipper JJ Smuts (62* of 52) and Marco Marais (42 of 38) were the key performers with the bat.
