Joburg Super Kings and Paarl Royals will lock horns in Match No. 24 of the SA20 2023 on Wednesday, February 1. The match will take place at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
The Super Kings, led by Faf du Plessis, are slowly but surely starting to find their feet in the tournament. From once languishing at the bottom of the table, du Plessis’ men have a golden chance of breaking into the top two.
They are on a two-match winning streak and will go into the game on the back of an eight-wicket win over Quinton de Kock’s Durban’s Super Giants. Du Plessis led from the front with an unbeaten 113 off 58 balls with eight fours and as many sixes.
The Royals, led by David Miller, on the other hand, are placed third in the table and even have a chance to break into the top two. Like the Super Kings, the Royals have also won their previous two matches in the tournament.
They will go into the game after beating Aiden Markram’s Sunrisers Eastern Cape by five wickets. After being asked to chase down 131, the Royals got home with seven balls to spare. Jos Buttler scored 51 off 39 at the top of the order.
