The Giants seek to dominate the Heat
After three washout games and two losses, at last, the Heat have won a game to stay alive in the tournament. Their opponents on Saturday, have gone through a different campaign altogether. The Giants were unbeaten until their last match against the Rocks a couple of days ago. There aren’t any loopholes in the Giants lineup, with most of their players in good form. Durban, on the other hand, seems to be getting to their best but they have to deal with the lack of quality international stars in their line up and poor form of few players. When these two sides met earlier in the season the Giants won by 5 wickets. Expect the same on Saturday if the Giants continue their form.
Both sides are unlikely to make any change to the playing XI from the last match.
The surface in Durban has mostly produced sporting games whether it is international or domestic cricket. But in the only completed match of the season, it was not the case as it produced a high scoring game. So expect something for everyone if the track holds true to its nature. The forecast is for rain in the last hour of the play.
He is among the top 5 point scores of the tournament. He has proved to be the most valuable player for the Giants with batting in the top 3 and chipping in with handy wickets in the middle overs. He has a PPM of 65 and an MDTA of 1 in the tour.
He is one among the trustworthy players for Smuts in the tournament. He has done the job, whether it is bowling in the powerplay or in death. Adding to it, his cameos down the order also proved to be vital for the Giants. He has a PPM of 52.6 and MDTA of 1 in the tour.
The veteran spinner has been amongst the top wicket-takers for the side in the tournament. He has chipped in with at least a wicket in each match and at times his spells proved to be the difference in the end result. Usually, he was known to be a bit expensive but in this tournament that was not the case. He has a PPM of 53 and MDTA of 1 in the tour.
He is one among the key batsmen for the Heat in the line-up which lacks international quality. In the 3 matches played so far in the tournament he has played his part either scoring a big knock or playing the anchor role when needed. His PPM of 48.3 and MDTA of 1.5 in the tour makes him a worthy pick in the Dream11 cricket team.
He may not have been at his best with the ball so far, but he has proved to be vital with the bat. His half-century may have gone in vain against the Blitz but apart from that, he hasn’t had much to do. He has a PPM of 40 and MDTA of 1.5 in the tour.
The young flamboyant batsman has proved to be one of the best finds for the Heat. He has either come up with an impactful knock or departed for a low score, which is his game style. The very quality makes him a big bet to consider against the Giants. He has a PPM of 59 and an MDTA of 1.5 in the tour.
