Durban's Super Giants will be facing off against Sunrisers Eastern Cape in the upcoming 25th match of the SA20. This highly anticipated match will be held on Friday, February 3, at Kingsmead, Durban. 

The Super Giants ended their losing streak with a nail-biting win over MI Cape Town in their last game. In a tense finish, DSG overpowered MI Cape Town by five wickets and recorded their third win of the season. 

With a mere 12 points on the board, the team languishes at the bottom of the standings. The win over Rashid Khan & Co. must have infused them with confidence, and they will be eager to extend their winning run in the tournament.  

On the other hand, South Eastern Cape have won four out of eight games in the tournament, securing second place with 17 points in their account. However, they suffered a five-wicket defeat in their last low-scoring match against Paarl Royals. 

Their batters struggled to put up a competitive score, with JJ Smuts as the only one to score more than 20 runs. Heading into this game, the team must be aiming for a better outing. All in all, a cracking match awaits us at Durban.

Pitch Report 

This pitch is a batting paradise, offering ample opportunities to score runs. However, the fast outfield and short square boundaries will pose serious threats to bowlers, especially pacers. The average first-inning score here is 162 runs, and the team winning the toss might look to bowl first. 

Predicted Playing XI 

Sunrisers Eastern Cape: Adam Rossington (wk), Jordan Hermann, Aiden Markram (c), Tristan Stubbs, Sarel Erwee, JJ Smuts, Marco Jansen, James Fuller, Roelof van der Merwe, Brydon Carse, Sisanda Magala

Durban Super Giants: Ben McDermott, Quinton de Kock (c), Matthew Breetzke, Wiaan Mulder, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Dwaine Pretorius, David Willey, Keemo Paul, Simon Harmer, Keshav Maharaj, Reece Topley 


The Durban Super Giants have a more well-rounded lineup than the Sunrisers Eastern Cape, giving them an edge over the Aiden Markram-led team in this match.
