EAC vs DUR, Match 19: Top Five Picks

  1. Aiden Markram (EAC): Captain Aiden Markram is a crucial member in the middle-order of this side as he is also the second-highest run-getter for Eastern Cape in this season. Banking on Markram looks like an ideal choice.
  2. Tristan Stubbs (EAC): A lot was expected from Tristan Stubbs before the start of the tournament but the youngster is yet to deliver. With the highest score of just 30 in 6 innings, Stubbs would be looking to finally come good for his side.
  3. Marco Jansen (EAC): Surprisingly, all-rounder Marco Jansen is the leading run-scorer for Eastern Cape in SAT20 2023. Considering his all-around abilities and his current form, Jansen is an easy pick for this fixture.
  4. Heinrich Klaasen (DUR): Heinrich Klaasen is enjoying a solid campaign as he is the leading run-scorer for the Super Giants with an average of 64.33 and a strike rate of 154.40.
  5. Quinton de Kock (DUR): Wicketkeeper and captain Quinton de Kock is behind Klaasen in terms of runs scoring for Durban with  159 runs and 2 half-centuries to his name. The experienced campaigner is a sure-shot pick for this one.
