MPR vs KTS Dream11 Prediction: The 12th encounter of the CSA T20 Cup 2021 season is scheduled to be played between the Mpumalanga Rhinos and the ITEC Knights on 30 September (Thursday) at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein. This will be the second match on the entertaining double header day in the ongoing edition of the tournament and also the third match for both these teams.
Both these teams are coming into this game after facing quite contrasting fortunes in the ongoing edition of the competition. It has been a really disappointing start to the CSA T20 Cup 2021 for the Mpumalanga Rhinos as they have not been able to win even a single match so far losing two back-to-back games. On the other hand, the ITEC Knights have got off to a brilliant start as having registered two comprehensive victories.
This is the sixth match in the Pool B of the CSA T20 Cup 2021 season that comprises of teams like Hollywoodbets Tuskers, ITEC Knights, Momentum Multiply Titans and Mpumalanga Rhinos. Both these teams would be now hoping to do well on a regular basis further in the crucial stage of this tournament. This will also be final match in the Pool B.
Fixture Name: Match 11, Mpumalanga Rhinos vs Knights
Competition: CSA T20 Cup
Date: 30 September
Time: 6 PM IST
Ground: Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein
Pitch Report: The Mangaung Oval will once again offer a competitive pitch as seen in the previous two games. There will be enough help both for the batsmen and bowlers on this wicket and since this will be the first afternoon match at the venue this season, it will be interesting to see the behaviour of the track. The dew factor will come into play as the game progresses and thus, chasing will be easier.
The Knights are surely looking as the better side in this contest and therefore, picking more of KTS players will be a brilliant move from the fantasy cricket point of view. It will also be important to include as many all-rounders and batsmen to increase the chances of winning big contests. The likes of Rilee Rossouw, Farhaan Behardien, Rubin Hermann and Gerald Coetzee will be the must pick players in this game.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Rubin Hermann
BATSMEN: Rilee Rossouw, Farhaan Behardien, Yassar Cook
ALL-ROUNDERS: Alex Kok, Blake Schraader, Jacques Snyman, Jon Hinrichsen
BOWLERS: Migael Pretorius, Gerald Coetzee, Mbulelo Budaza
The ITEC Knights will surely have the upper hand in this contest after their dominating performance in the first two matches of the Pool B in this ongoing edition of the CSA T20 Cup. Both their batting as well as bowling departments are pretty much sorted and looking solid. On the other hand, the Mpumalanga Rhinos would also be hoping to play with the best of their potentials to pick up their first win of the season.
For the Mpumalanga Rhinos, it will be crucial to grab the momentum from the opening stages of the CSA T20 Cup 2021 season both in the batting as well as bowling departments. The trio of Liam Peters, Rubin Hermann and Alex Kok will be the important clogs in the batting department and they will have to contribute collectively for the team to do well this year. On the other hand, Luvuyo Nkese, Bamanye Xenxe and Blake Schraader will play a significant role with the ball.
For the Mpumalanga Rhinos, Alex Kok does not have a lot of experience playing the shortest format of the game but he will surely be a key player to watch out for in the ongoing edition of the tournament. While playing in just 4 T20 matches, he has an amazing strike-rate of 163.04. He has already registered two brilliant 90-plus scores in the longest format of the game for Mpumalanga Rhinos.
Mpumalanga Rhinos wicket-keeper batsman Rubin Hermann played a fine innings of 32 runs that included four boundaries in the last game against the Tuskers. He has been in an impressive form across different formats in domestic cricket in the recent while. Rubin has smashed a total of 139 runs in the last 5 matches that includes a brilliant fifty as well. He will be hopeful to contribute with a big knock in this match.
MPR Playing 11 (likely)
The ITEC Knights will be very much hopeful to continue the good work both in the batting as well as bowling departments. The likes of Farhaan Behardien, Rilee Rossouw, Petrus van Biljon and Jacques Snyman will be expected to play well and take some responsibility in the batting department. On the other hand, Migael Pretorius, Gerald Coetzee and Mbulelo Budaza will be the key with the ball.
For the ITEC Knights, left-handed batsman Rilee Rossouw played a brilliant unbeaten innings of 73 runs off 51 balls that included 7 fours and 1 six in the previous game against Titans. He is quite an experienced performer when it comes to the shortest format of the game as he plays T20 cricket across the globe in different conditions. The southpaw batter has composed more than 5000 runs in a total of 220 T20 matches at a strike-rate of 136.29.
ITEC Knights’ Farhaan Behardien scored an amazing cameo of 23 runs off 19 balls in the opening match. The right-handed middle-order batsman has scored more than 3000 runs at a strike-rate of 132.22. He has also smashed a total of 11 half-centuries in the shortest version of the game. Farhaan Behardien will now once again be an important performer in this match for the Knights.
