PR vs NMG Dream11 Team Prediction & Preview: 28th Match, MSL 2019

PR vs NMG Dream11 Prediction, Match Preview and Probable Playing XI of the 28th match of Mzansi Super League 2019. Paarl Rocks will take on Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at Boland Park in Paarl.

Paarl Rocks have played well this season and are on the second position in the points table with 5 wins and 3 losses and a total of 23 points. But in the last game, they did not perform well against Durban Heat and lost the match by 6 wickets.

In the last match, Batting first Paarl Rocks were very impressed with their batting and scored a huge total of 192 runs which was possible because of Cameron Delport’s 84 runs of just 49 balls and Faf du Plessis’s 66* of 36 balls. Though they had such a good total their bowlers weren’t able to defend the score and they lost the match. Tabraiz Shamsi picked up 2 wickets, Isuru Udana and Kerwin Mungroo picked up a wicket each. They would want to win their next match against the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants as there is a chance that they might lose their 2nd position if they lose this match.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants are first on the points table with six wins and two losses and with 27 points. They won their last match against Cape Town Blitz by 11 runs.

Batting First, Bay Giants started the innings well but later lost wickets very quickly and managed to put up a score of 173 runs. Openers Ben Dunk and Mathew Breetzke scored 75 and 64 runs respectively. The remaining players weren’t able to score more than 10 runs. While Bowling Bay Giants gave away too many runs at the start of the innings but once they broke the opening partnership they took wickets at regular intervals and won the match. Every bowler who bowled in this match picked up at least one wicket and it was Imran Tahir again who picked up 2 wickets for 22 runs in his 4 overs. They would want to win their last match against Paarl rocks and close their league stage on a winning note and qualify for the finals.

CTB vs NMG Dream11 Team News

Though they have lost the previous match, there is nothing much that they could have done on that day. So they would keep their faith in the same team and play with the same XI.

Bay Giants are on a two-match winning streak, though there are some concerns in their middle order they would still like to go with the same team and not experiment in their last match. The only possibility is that Junior Dala might play in the next match in place of Nandre Burger.
