Pretoria Capitals Team News & Playing 11
PRE Team News
After Pretoria Capitals had beaten Paarl Royals by 59 runs, an excellent response to their 151 run defeat against Durban’s Super Giants, the same team was selected for Wednesday’s semi-final. This is clearly their strongest XI and we do not anticipate any changes for this final.
PRE Key Players
- Phil Salt- the aggressive right-hander has hit two half-centuries in the SA20 and has a top score of 77 not out, made against Sunrisers in Match 3 of the campaign.
- Rilee Rossouw- the top order batter has scored only 183 runs across the competition but hit his first 50 on Thursday. He is a real talent who could deliver in the final.
- Anrich Nortje- the right-arm fast bowler continues to be one of the most impressive bowlers in the tournament. No player has taken more wickets than him.
PRE Team Form
Pretoria Capitals have won four and lost one of their last five matches in the SA20.

Ahead of the semi-final clash with Johannesburg Super Kings, Jordan Cox and Ottniel Baartman came back into Sunrisers Eastern Cape’s XI. They took the places of JJ Smuts and James Fuller and we expect the same team to be selected for this game.
EAC Key Players
- Temba Bavuma- it has been an up and down performance from the South African skipper since he joined up with the Sunrisers after the ODI series. He has registered two ducks and one half-century.

- Roelof van der Merwe- with 16 wickets from his 30 overs across the tournament, the left-arm spinner will be a big threat once again in the final. He dismissed Gerald Coetzee and Donovan Ferreira on Thursday.
