PC vs PR Betting Tips

  • Kusal Mendis hit 80 runs from 41 balls at the top of the order on Tuesday and the Sri Lankan opener is our tip for Pretoria Capitals’ highest run scorer in the semi-final. With the ball, Anrich Nortje took 1-14 from four overs in Match 30 and the pace bowler is our pick for Pretoria Capitals’ top wicket taker against Paarl Royals.
  • Jos Buttler is now averaging 42.00 across the competition and the top order batter is well worth backing as Paarl Royals' highest run scorer against Pretoria Capitals. Bjorn Fortuin has had a strong tournament and has best figures of 3-14. The spinner is our tip for Paarl Royals’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • There are very few other batters who are as consistent in white ball cricket as Jos Buttler. We recommend backing him to hit over 31.5 runs in this fixture.

PRE vs PRL T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Semi Final SA20 2023

The 1st SA20 Semi-Final sees Pretoria Capitals and Paarl Royals go head to head for the second time in two days. The Capitals, who finished top of the table, beat the Royals, who finished in fourth place, by 59 runs at Centurion Park on Tuesday afternoon. Read on as we preview Wednesday evening’s clash. This game gets underway at the Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg at 17:30 local time.

Pretoria Capitals showed a huge amount of character on Tuesday to bounce back from their heavy defeat against Durban’s Super Giants. They will fancy their chances of beating Paarl Royals for the second time in two days.

Paarl Royals made a good go of their 227 target on Tuesday but were way short of winning the game. They will need to bowl far better in this game to have a chance of making the final.

Joburg Super Kings won the last two games at the Wanderers Stadium after batting first. We predict that both teams will want to bat first in this semi-final.

PRE vs PRL, The Wanderers Stadium Pitch Report

Any score over 165-170 will be very hard to chase down in the second innings of this game. There is pace, turn and bounce on this pitch.

Pretoria Capitals Team News & Playing 11

PRE Team News

It was no surprise to see England spinner Adil Rashid and South Africa right arm fast bowler come back into the team after being rested for the heavy defeat against Durban’s Super Giants in their previous match. The Capitals were outstanding on Tuesday and have no injury worries ahead of this semi-final.

PRE Key Players

  • Kusal Mendis - The English opener always scores his runs at a fast rate irrespective of the format or bowling opposition. He has hit two half-centuries in the tournament.
  • Phil Salt - The right handed England international struck a very useful 39 runs from 21 balls at the top of the order in Tuesday’s final group stage game and has been in excellent form during the tournament.
  • Anrich Nortje - The South African pace bowler was exceptional with his line and length on his return to the team in Centurion. Only Gerard Coetzee has more wickets so far in the SA20.

PRE Team Form

Pretoria Capitals have won three of their last four matches and five of their last seven in the tournament.

PRL Team News

Wihan Lubbe, Dane Vilas and Tabraiz Shamsi were all left out of Tuesday’s group stage match with Codi Yusuf, Paul Stirling and Eoin Morgan coming into the side. It would be a big surprise if Tabraiz Shamsi did not come back in on this surface,

PRL Key Players

  • Jos Buttler - The right-handed English top order batter is back at the top of the run scorer’s list after hitting four fours and five sixes on Tuesday.
  • Lungi Ngidi - The right arm fast-medium bowler took 2-39 in the last game. He dismissed both openers, Phil Salt and Kusal Mendis.
  • Bjorn Fortuin - The left-arm spinner went wicketless at Centurion Park but should benefit from the extra pace and bounce in this wicket in Johannesburg.

PRL Team Form

Paarl Royals have won only two of their last five fixtures in this tournament.

Paarl Royals Predicted Playing 11

Jason Roy, Paul Stirling, Jos Buttler (wk), Mitchell van Buuren, Eoin Morgan, David Miller (c), Evan Jones, Mitchell van Buuren, Andile Phehlukwayo, Bjorn Fortuin, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi.

Who will win Pretoria Capitals vs Paarl Royals T20 Match?

Although Jos Buttler is one of the world’s greatest T20 batters, the overall batting line-up and bowlers in the Pretoria Capitals have proved to be stronger over the course of the SA20.

🏆 Pretoria Capitals vs Paarl Royals Prediction

It is very rare that teams play each other on successive days but that is exactly what is happening to Pretoria Capitals and Paarl Royals in this match. Jos Buttler could well be the key player in this game, if he makes a century then the Royals will be very hard to beat but if he does not then there are not many more consistent run scorers in their team. We expect to see a very competitive semi-final and are backing Pretoria Capitals to win.
