DSG vs MICT Betting Tips

  • Heinrich Klaasen had a very strong 2023 which included him hitting an unbeaten century in the SA20. He is our pick for Durban Super Giants’ highest run scorer in Match 2. Reece Topley is two wickets from bringing up 200 T20 dismissals and he is a strong choice for Durban Super Giants’ top wicket taker against MI Cape Town.
  • Rassie van der Dussen is a very consistent performer across all formats and has a top score of 112 not out in T20 cricket. The right-hander is our tip for MI Cape Town’s highest run scorer on Thursday. Kagiso Rabada will be keen to improve on his strike-rate of 16.90 from last year’s tournament and we expect him to be MI Cape Town’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • With a brilliant T20 record across all tournaments and 369 runs in the 2023 SA20, we recommend backing Faf du Plessis to score over 31.5 runs in this match.

DSG vs MICT T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, SA20 2024

Match 2 of the 2024 SA20 tournament sees Durban Super Giants go head to head with MI Cape Town at Kingsmead on Thursday evening. These sides were the bottom two teams in last season’s SA20 although the Super Giants only missed out on the play-offs due to net-run-rate. Read on as we preview this day-night game. This match begins at 17:30 local time in Durban.

Durban Super Giants finished level on points in the group stage with eventual competition winners Sunrisers Eastern Cape last year. Therefore, it’s fair to say that they were not far from having a successful tournament. We are backing them to get off to a winning start.

The loss of skipper Rashid Khan to injury is a blow for MI Cape Town who were the most disappointing side in the debut season of the competition. However, their team is full of top level T20 players and their homegrown bowling attack will cause problems.

DSG vs MICT Match Toss Prediction

Teams fielding first have a far superior record in T20s at Kingsmead so we predict that both sides will choose to bat second and field first if they win the toss ahead of this game.

DSG vs MICT Pitch Report

The average T20 score at Kingsmead in 2023 was only 140 but we expect a quicker pitch this year and a par score of over 160 from this surface.

Durban Weather Report

The weather forecast is for mostly cloudy conditions across this game with high humidity levels. The temperature will be in the mid-twenties throughout.

Durban Super Giants Team News & Playing 11

DSG Team News

After failing to make the top five places in last season’s competition, the Super Giants have replaced Quinton de Kock as skipper with Keshav Maharaj in SA20 2024. It will not take much for the team to improve on their placing from 2023 and they have a fully fit squad to select from in this game.

DSG Key Players

  • Heinrich Klaasen - The powerful middle order batter announced his Test retirement earlier this week and we can expect him to show off his white ball skills in this game.
  • Quinton de Kock - The left-handed keeper-batter did not have the best of times in this year’s BBL but he is a proven short format player and he will be keen to produce in his home country.
  • Reece Topley - The England international is a white ball specialist who always extracts bounce and movement from any pitch. He will cause problems throughout the innings.
  • Keshav Maharaj - The all-format South Africa international spinner has taken on the captaincy for this year’s tournament. He has a strong T20 record with 111 dismissals.

DSG Team Form

Durban Super Giants won their final game of last season by 151 runs and were unbeaten from their last three matches.

Durban Super Giants Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), Tony de Zorzi, Matthew Breetzkee, Nicholas Pooran, Heinrich Klaasen, Wiaan Mulder, Keemo Paul, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj (c), Reece Topley, Junior Dala

MI Cape Town Team News & Playing 11

MICT Team News

With none of their first choice players taking part in this year’s BBL, MI Cape Town have been able to benefit from having their squad together for longer than some other sides ahead of their opener. Kieron Pollard will captain the side with Rashid Khan currently injured.

MICT Key Players

  • Rassie van der Dussen - The right-hander is likely to bat at number three in this game and although he may not score quite as quickly as others, he has a reliable average of 35.72 in T20 cricket.
  • Liam Livingstone - The English international all-rounder had a disappointing 2023 Cricket World Cup but he impressed for England in the West Indies afterwards and could be back in form.
  • Kagiso Rabada - The all-format South African pace bowler is simply one of the best in the world. He has 230 T20 wickets from 176 innings and has delivered across the globe.
  • Beuran Hendricks - The 33 year old left-arm fast medium bowler has an impressive strike-rate of 16.3 and best figures of 6/29 in T20 cricket.

MICT Team Form

MI Cape Town won only three matches across the entire tournament last season and lost all of their last four games.

MI Cape Town Predicted Playing 11

Dewald Brevis, Tom Banton, Rassie van der Dussen, Grant Roelofsen (wk), Kieron Pollard (c), Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, George Linde, Kagiso Rabada, Duan Jansen, Beuran Hendricks

Who will win Durban Super Giants vs MI Cape Town T20 Match?

We agree with the bookies that the teams are very well matched but we think Durban Super Giants have the edge in the batting department. Therefore, we have them as the top team ahead of this game.

DSG vs MICT Top Team Batsmen

We have selected Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen and Nicholas Pooran with the bat for Durban Super Giants. Trinidad’s Pooran is another batter who has been in fine form in white ball cricket over the last 12 months and he has hit over 6000 T20 runs across his career. Klaasen scores his runs at a good rate in T20 cricket with his T20 strike-rate at 145.31 and his T20I rate at 147.64.

For MI Cape Town, Liam Livingstone, Rassie van der Dussen and Dewald Brevis are our batting tips. Although Brevis is only 20 years of age, he has already scored over 1000 T20 runs including his top score of 162. Livingstone has developed into a real top level short format batter over recent seasons and he has scored two centuries and 32 fifties in T20 cricket so far in his career.

DSG vs MICT Top Team Bowlers

We recommend Reece Topley, Keshav Maharaj and Junior Dala with the ball for Durban Super Giants. Right-arm medium pacer Dala has taken 114 T20 wickets and has best figures of 4/18 ahead of this match. Topley has missed out on plenty of franchise and international opportunities due to injuries but he was back to his best for England during the tour of the West Indies in December.

Sam Curran, Beuran Hendricks and Kagiso Rabada are our bowling choices for MI Cape Town. England all-rounder Curran was named the Player of the Series in the 2022 T20 World Cup and needs three dismissals to bring up 200 in this format. Rabada has an excellent IPL record where he has taken 106 wickets from 69 games. He will get pace and movement from this pitch.

🏆 Durban Super Giants vs MI Cape Town Prediction

We agree with many cricket pundits that this game is likely to be very close and we see the key battle being between Kagiso Rabada and Durban Super Giants batting line-up. If Rabada can dismiss some big names then his team will have an excellent chance. Overall though, we think Durban Super Giants have the slightly stronger line-up and we are backing them to win this game.
