JSK lost back-to-back games against Paarl Royals and MI Cape Town after winning the first against Durban Super Giants. To get back on track, they will face Pretoria Capitals in the league’s 11th match, their first home game in front of a Johannesburg crowd.
JSK’s batting unit failed for the second time in a row to put a decent score on the board in their last game against MI Cape Town. Leus du Plooy, who scored 21 runs off 26 balls, was JSK’s highest run scorer in front of MICT’s pacers. They only managed to score 105 runs in 20 overs.
It was difficult for them to defend 106 runs against MICT’s power-hitting batting lineup. Despite Gerald Coetzee’s two wickets for 24 runs in four overs, the other bowlers failed to put pressure on the opponents’ batting unit, and they were defeated by seven wickets.
Though the team appears to be well-balanced on paper, they have not capitalised on their strengths thus far this season. If teams want to win against Pretoria Capitals, their batting unit must put on a batting display in front of their home crowd.
