All 40 wickets fell in the last game and batters need to be proactive to score runs consistently. We expect average score to be around 350+ runs in this match. 

Toss: To Bowl

Both teams will look to bat first in this match as the pitch will be good to bat early in the match. The pitch might deteroiate as match progresses and batting will become difficult. 

Eastern Cape will start their campaign in this match and they will look to find their best XI for this match. Northern Cape are on a roll and will look to continue their dream run. Their batters have posted big scores and their bowlers picked up all the wickets in the two matches played so far. We expect Northern Cape to win this match.
