MI Cape Town will lock horns with Sunrisers Eastern Cape in the 12th match of the ongoing SA20 on Wednesday, January 18 at Newlands, Cape Town. 

MI Cape Town, despite suffering two losses from four outings, are currently sitting at the top of the SA20 points table. Their most recent defeat came at the expense of Southern Eastern Cape only. 

Their batting looked depleted against the Men in Orange. Thanks to George Linde's belligerent half-century knock, MI Cape Town could manage to post a challenging total on the board. 

However, it wasn't enough as Sunrisers Eastern Cape chased down the target in 19.3 overs. Aiden Markram and Tristan Stubbs played flamboyant knocks to help their side register their maiden win of the season.

Heading into this match, while MI Cape Town will look to avenge their previous match defeat, the Sunrisers Eastern Cape will be keen on sustaining their winning run in the tournament.
