Wining the previous match Cape Town Blitz will be confident and wouldn’t like to change their playing XI and go with the same team as in the previous match.
Though they have won the last match they lost some early wickets so they would want to have Jason Roy back into to team and there is a chance that he might replace Mathew Breetzkee as Ben Dunk playing very good as an opener.
