NMG vs DUR Dream11 Team Prediction and Preview: 14th Match, Mzansi Super League 2019
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants will take on Durban Heats in the 14th T20 match of Mzansi Super League 2019 at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth. We will cover NMG vs DUR Dream11 Prediction, match preview and probable playing XI of the match.
Table-toppers Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have won all three of their completed matches and are performing well as a team. In the last game, They defeated Cape Town Blitz by 5 wickets.
Bowling first, Chris Morris, Dala, Tahir and Onke Nyaku struck twice each to restrict Cape Town Blitz at 186 runs. Chasing the target, JJ Smuts played match-winning knock of 73 runs while Macro Marais and Ben Dunk scored attacking 40* and 28 fields to ensure comfortable chase of the target. They will be eager to continue the winning momentum ahead and defeat under-performing Durban Heat.
Durban Heat has been profoundly affected by rain gods this season with three of the encounters being washed out and one ending on losing side for them. However, Rain gods saved them yesterday when they were in a quite unfortunate situation against Tshwane Spartans. Thus, ending in no result.
Bowling first, Heat bowlers failed against Spartans resulting in a total of 141 runs in 15 overs. Siboto, Phehlukwayo and Kyle Abbott took one scalp each but could not keep a check on their economy. In the chase, Durban top-order collapsed quickly and were limping on 21/3 in 2.1 overs before rain entered and ultimately the match was abandoned. They will hope to open their account tomorrow defeating Giants.
