Pretoria Capitals will take on Paarl Royals in the first semifinal of the SA20. Both teams met in the last league game as well and Pretoria Capitals won the match with a convincing margin of 59 runs.
Having posted a magnificent score of 226-5, the Capitals managed to restrict the Royals to a mere 167-9. Notably, the Royals needed to score 163 to qualify for the semi-final and they barely managed to do so. The Capitals will be high on confidence after winning the last game, but the Royals too won't be too down as they defeated the Capitals in the first league game.
The wicket should be a good sporting wicket. It will have pace and bounce for the bowlers to exploit while batters will also get full value for their shots.
There is around 70 per cent chance of rain on the match day. The temperature will range between 23 and 15 degrees.

Jason Roy is a player to keep a keen eye on. Roy has been inconsistent but that doesn't make him a less match-winner. He can return to form anytime and smash the bowlers to all corners of the park.
Jos Buttler has been in remarkable form for the Royals in the last few days. Buttler has hit three fifties in the last four matches and will be eyeing another big knock in the coming game.
David Miller is also having a decent tournament for the Royals. Coming down the order, Miller has played a few cameos for his team, giving them much-needed wins. He has two man-of-the-match awards in the last three completed games.
Kusal Mendis was in top form in the previous match against the Royals as he whacked 80 in just 41 balls which must have instilled a lot of confidence in him. He has played a few good knocks for Pretoria Capitals in the backend of the tournament.
Anrich Nortje has played a significant role in the Capitals' journey to the semis. Nortje has taken 16 wickets in 9 matches and sits second on the list of most wickets this season.
