Joburg Super Kings (Match Odds – 1.75):


Faf du Plessis will be pleased with his team’s performance in the tournament. They finished second on the points table after winning their final game against MI Cape Town by 76 runs. Their batting appears to be in good shape, and their bowlers performed admirably in the previous game. They had beaten Sunrisers Eastern Cape in both league games, which will boost their confidence.

The team will be hoping for a strong start from openers Faf du Plessis and Reeza Hendricks, both of whom have scored runs in the tournament. Leus du Plooy batted well in the previous game and will look to form partnerships in the middle order with Sibonelo Makhanya and Matthew Wade. Down the order, they can also expect runs from Donavon Ferreira, Kyle Simmonds, and Romario Shepherd.

With the new ball, the team will need good spells from Kyle Simmonds and Lizaad Williams. They both bowled well in the previous game and will carry that confidence into this one. Maheesh Theekshana is an experienced bowler who, along with Shephard and Gerald Coetzee, must perform well. Donavon Ferreira’s spells in the supporting role will be crucial.

Full Squad:

Faf du Plessis (c), Maheesh Theekshana, Romario Shepherd, Gerald Coetzee, Janneman Malan, Reeza Hendricks, Kyle Verreynne, George Garton, Leus du Plooy, Lewis Gregory, Lizaad Williams, Nandre Burger, Donavon Ferreira, Malusi Siboto, Caleb Seleka, Aaron Phangiso, Sibonelo Makhanya, Neil Brand, Matthew Wade, Kyle Simmonds

Players to watch out for:

Faf du Plessis

Only Jos Buttler has scored more runs in the SA20 than Faf du Plessis. Throughout the tournament, he has one century and two half-centuries.

Leus du Plooy

The English middle-order batter was named Player of the Match after scoring 81 runs off 48 balls in Monday’s match.

Gerald Coetzee

The right-arm fast bowler picked up three more wickets in the previous game. In the win over MI Cape Town, he dismissed Dewald Brevis, George Linde, and Rashid Khan.

Possible Playing XI:

Faf du Plessis (c), Reeza Hendricks, Leus du Plooy, Sibonelo Makhanya, Matthew Wade (wk), Donavon Ferreira, Romario Shepherd, Gerald Coetzee, Kyle Simmonds, Lizaad Williams, Maheesh Theekshana

Sunrisers Eastern Cape (Match Odds – 2.10):


Aiden Markram’s team has its work cut out for them. They must overcome their two losses to the Super Kings and play with a positive attitude. They come in with a 24-run loss to the same team. Batting has been shaky in recent games, and Markram must lead from the front and guide his team to victory.

Temba Bavuma played well in the previous game, and he needs to form a strong partnership with Adam Rossington in this one. The middle order hasn’t been at its best, so Jordan Hermann, JJ Smuts, and Markram must step up. The team bats deep, with Tristan Stubbs, James Fuller, and Marco Jansen all capable of scoring quick runs.

Smuts and Marco Jansen will be put to the test because their opponents have a strong batting lineup. They must score early to put the Super Kings on the back foot. Sisanda Magala has done well, and he, along with Filler and Roelof van der Merwe, will need to keep the scoring rate under control. Brydon Carse and Markram round out the bowling options for the team.

Full Squad:

Aiden Markram (c), Ottniel Baartman, Marco Jansen, Tristan Stubbs, Sisanda Magala, Junaid Dawood, Mason Crane, JJ Smuts, Jordan Cox, Adam Rossington, Roelof van der Merwe, Marques Ackerman, James Fuller, Brydon Carse, Sarel Erwee, Ayabulela Gqamane, Jordan Hermann, Temba Bavuma

Players to watch out for:

Temba Bavuma

The South African white-ball captain scored 50 runs off 34 balls in the previous match against the Super Kings, forming a 59-run partnership with Aiden Markram.

Marco Jansen

The bowling all-rounder took a crucial wicket of Leus du Plooy in the previous game. He has the ability to win this T20 game with both bat and ball.

Roelof van der Merwe

The 38-year-old left-arm spinner is third in the tournament wicket-taking list, trailing only Gerald Coetzee and Anrich Nortje.

Possible Playing XI:

Aiden Markram (c), Adam Rossington (wk), Temba Bavuma, Jordan Hermann, JJ Smuts, Tristan Stubbs, Marco Jansen, Sisanda Magala, Roelof van der Merwe, Brydon Carse, James Fuller

Joburg Super Kings vs Sunrisers Eastern Cape Toss Prediction

It is one of South Africa’s fastest wickets, and fast bowlers have done well with the new ball. With the weather expected to remain cloudy, batting on this track will be difficult. We expect the team that wins the toss to bowl first on this wicket in order to capitalise on the early juice on the surface.

Joburg Super Kings vs Sunrisers Eastern Cape Pitch Report

SuperSport Park in Centurion is one of the liveliest pitches in South Africa, with good bounce and carry for fast bowlers. The pitch’s grass cover helps fast bowlers. Batsmen who play through the line have also had success here. Spinners don’t have a lot of options on this track.

Centurion’s weather forecast for February 8 is partly cloudy. Because it has been raining in this area for a few days, the pitch will be slightly damp, which will help fast bowlers. Batsmen can play their strokes, and we’ve seen two high-scoring games in a row. The team batting first will need to score 180 runs.

Joburg Super Kings vs Sunrisers Eastern Cape Prediction

Sunrisers Eastern Cape’s momentum has dwindled in the second half of the season. Their batsmen have been inconsistent, and the team will need its top five batsmen to perform well and put up a fight in this game. The Joburg Super Kings arrive in good form, with their batsmen scoring runs. They defeated Eastern Cape twice in the league stage and will go into this game as favourites.
