Durban Super Giants have won two of their three tournament games and appear to be in good form. Quinton de Kock has been outstanding at the top, and the other hitters have all performed admirably. Reece Topley was fantastic with the ball in the previous games and is a huge asset.
The Boland Park in Paarl will host the second game of the current SA20 League. This is one of the most picturesque grounds in the world, and it is always a treat to watch a match at this site.
This venue has not been a good track for hitters, as seen by the last match. The spinners controlled the last encounter, and the ball was holding the wicket. This match is likely to have a better pitch, but the bowlers are expected to dominate once again. At this location, the average first-inning T20 score is 157 runs.
In this match, the narrower boundaries and speedy outfield might help the batters. If the hitters can settle in the first few overs, they have a strong opportunity of scoring large here. Based on the track record of this venue, both captains will opt to chase if they win the toss.
The SA20 League matches will be televised live on Sports18. The ICC has made the SA20 event available on ICC.tv in a number of countries, while spectators in India may watch it on the Jio Cinema app and website.
