The Pretoria Capitals and Durban’s Super Giants will face each other in Match No.28 of the SA20 2023 on Sunday, February 5. The match will take place at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.
The Capitals, led by Wayne Parnell, are sitting at the top of the table with 27 points and a net run rate of +1.758. They are already through to the playoffs and are likely to finish in the top two.
The Capitals had to fight hard to win their previous game against MI Cape Town by one wicket. While chasing 160, they got home off the last ball. Rilee Rossouw was named the Player of the Match after he scored 40 runs off 19 balls.
The Super Giants, on the other hand, are placed fifth in the table with 14 points and a net run rate of -1.355. A win in their next game won’t be enough for them to get through to the next round due to their net run rate, the worst among all the teams in the tournament.
A win with a bonus point would give the Super Giants a chance of making it through to the next stage, but even then, the Joburg Super Kings will have to lose both their matches. With their backs to the wall, it will be interesting to see how the Super Giants react.
