The Yellow Army, Joburg Super Kings will stride forward to clash against Durban's Super Giants when they meet at the Kingsmead Stadium, Durban, in the second match of the much-hyped SA20 League 2023.

The expertise and experience of South Africa's veteran Faf du Plessis will be on display when he leads his beloved Super Kings side against the brilliance of Quinton de Kock, who has been handed the responsibility of leading Lucknow's sister franchise.

With some outstanding international quality in the line-ups of both teams, the local talent cannot be undermined as has been the case in the past.

While Durban have Jason Holder, Keshav Maharaj, Johnson Charles, Christiaan Jonker and Dwaine Pretorius, their counterparts are lit up with the firepower of Maheesh Theekshana, Janneman Malan, Reeza Hendricks, Alzarri Joseph and Donavon Ferreira who will set the stage ablaze.
