The much anticipated SA20 league has taken its initial steps and we have reached the fourth match which will be played between Paarl Royals vs Joburg Super Kings.
Both teams are evenly matched and will try to topple each other. The 4th T20 of the South African league will take place at Newlands, Cape Town, South Africa on Friday. And the market is getting hotter with top bookmakers in India are giving some excellent offers for the inaugural T20 league.
Paarl Royals have a good depth in their batting lineup with a good balance in their bowling as well. David Miller will be leading the team himself and he himself has been in great form recently.
One of the most admired South African cricketers, Faf du Plessis, will be the leading man for the Joburg Super Kings. He carries a good experience in captaincy, as he has led the national team previously.
Our experts believe that Royals will outcast Super Kings to win the upcoming game. However, do keep an eye on Faf du Plessis when the individual performances come into play.
The betting tip is...
Paarl Royals will Win
PR will be under the spotlight because of the quality of players they have on the team. Their batting lineup consists of David Miller, Jos Buttler, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Jason Roy. All four of them are experienced to face any kind of attack from the opposition. Jos Buttler is a T20 expert and he has been in deadly form in the T20 world cup. Corbin Bosch and Bjorn Fortuin will be given the responsibility of the bowling attack; the duo will be expected to pick some early wickets.
Miller will be leading the side and will field their strongest playing XI for Friday's game against a decent JSK team. The probable line-up for PR is as follows:
Predicted Lineup: David Miller (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Tabraiz Shamsi, Andile Phehluwayo, Jason Roy, Wihan Lubbe, Dane Vilas, Bjorn Fortuin, Eoin Morgan, Obed McCoy, Corbin Bosch
Faf du Plessis is back in the leadership role and that will definitely benefit the franchise. He already carries a good experience in leadership at the national level and in the T20 leagues. Faf du Plessis, Janneman Malan, and Reeza Hendricks will be responsible to provide the team with a good start. Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, and George Garton will be the key bowlers for the team.
Faf-led Super Kings have a well-balanced squad and the skipper will be looking to go with experience and youth in the playing XI. This could be their predicted XI:
Predicted Lineup: Faf du Plessis (c), Janneman Malan, Reeza Hendricks, Leus du Plooy, Kyle Verreynne, Donavon Ferreira, Lewis Gregory, Gerald Coetzee, Alzarri Joseph, Romario Shepherd, Lizaad Williams
Considering the lineup of both the teams, Royals are clearly a strong team and we predict a win for the Paarl Royals in the upcoming fixture.
