Port Elizabeth, December 8 at 10:30 PM IST
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, sitting second on the Mzansi Super League 2018 points table, would be looking to catch up on the table toppers Cape Town Blitz when they meet Tshwane Spartans on Saturday. For them to go to the top, they must win the remaining two but also hope that Blitz lose both of theirs. They have been unfortunate with two of their games being washed out, including the last against Durban Heat.
Tshwane Spartans, on the other hand, are hanging by a thread. The win over Paarl Rocks in the last outing has kept them in the hunt for the playoffs but they need to win the remaining three games to stand a chance.
Last result at the venue: Jozi Stars 173/3 defeat Nelson Mandela Bay Giants 92 all-out – December 2, Mzansi Super League 2018
