Joburg Super Kings would want their top order to get some form as they were saved by Donavon Ferreira in the last match. Faf-du-Plessis is expected to go big in this match with support from other batters in the team. Paarl Royals will be expecting a lot more from their firepower batting lineup but they desperately need their bowlers to step up who were looking like a toy in front of Brevis.
The match between these two teams begins at 5:00 pm IST and will be streaming live on Voot App and Jio Cinema App. We are putting our money on the Joburg Super Kings because of their current form but anything can happen in this shorter format of the game.
