PRE vs DUR, Match 28: Top Five Picks

  1. Phil Salt (PRE): Despite 2 half-centuries, England international Phil Salt has managed to score only 168 runs in 6 innings. The opener would be hoping for some more runs under his belt in the coming matches.
  2. Kusal Mendis (PRE): Kusal Mendis is averaging 35.00 in 3 outings and has got starts in each game. The Sri Lankan will be looking to convert his starts into a significant score in this fixture.
  3. Anrich Nortje (PRE): Anrich Nortje is the leading wicket-taker in SAT20 with 15 scalps to his name. The speedster is in some form in the tournament and picking him is a no-brainer for this fixture.
  4. Heinrich Klaasen (DUR): Right-handed batter Heinrich Klaasen is the leading run-scorer for Durban Super Giants with 3 half-centuries in SAT20 2023. He is the man in form and picking him up is a straightforward choice.
  5. Quinton de Kock (DUR): Super Giants skipper Quinton de Kock is the second highest run-getter for his side after Klaasen. The South African intenrational should be a good pick for this contest.
