We are into the 16th game of the CSA T20 Challenge 2022 and we shall have one of the most interesting contests. North West and Western Province have both done well in the tournament. Western Province come here with a win against the Lions while the North West lost their last game against the Rocks in the Super Over.
Both sides have their players in great form and this is likely to make this game interesting. Western Province haven’t allowed their opponents to score runs in the three games and their bowlers have been in excellent form. North West have good hitters of the ball in the side and it remains to be seen if they are up to the task in this game.
Nicky van den Bergh would be upset to have lost the last game against the Rocks in the Super Over. They had won both their games by big margins before that but a poor show with the ball resulted in their defeat. They take on the table-toppers in this game and van den Bergh would look for a better show from his bowlers.
Wesley Marshall and Senuran Muthusamy have to provide the side with a good start as they have been inconsistent. The middle order is strong for the side with Nicky van den Bergh, Dwaine Pretorius, and Delano Potgieter in good form. The side would also like to see runs from Lesego Senokwane and Nono Pongolo towards the end of the innings.
Their bowlers took a beating in the last game and the side would need Johannes Diseko and Chad Classen to deliver with the new ball. Duan Jansen and Pretorius have to bowl tight lines in the middle overs. The likes of Senuran Muthusamy, Caleb Seleka, and Pretorius must bowl well as they are up against a good batting line-up.

Wayne Parnell would be happy with the form his side has shown so far. They have played three games and registered comfortable wins in each of these. They defeated the defending champions Lions by 5 wickets in the last game between two sides. Parnell would want his side to continue with the momentum and strengthen their lead with a win in this game.
The side would like to see a good start from Jonathan Bird and Gavin Kaplan. Bird has struggled and the side would like to see him do well. Dane Vilas has looked doo and he would have to add runs in the middle with Tony de Zorzi and Yaseen Vallie. Parnell and Aviwe Mgijima bring hitting abilities down the order and the side would need runs from them.
Beuran Hendricks has been good with the ball and he would aim to strike early in the game with Parnell. Junaid Dawood has also bowled good lines for the side so far. The likes of Basheeru-Deen Walters, Mihlali Mpongwana, and Mgijima add to the balance of this attack and they have been impressive so far in the tournament.

The skies over Port Elizabeth would be overcast and there are possibilities of rain during the game on February 15. The wicket is lively and batsmen are likely to struggle on this surface during the game. The side batting first here would be happy to put up 160 runs on the board.
St George's Park, Port Elizabeth is a good venue for the bowlers. Batsmen need to adjust to the conditions and play their strokes selectively. Fast bowlers have enjoyed a great track record at this venue. There isn’t much on this surface for the spinners and they have to depend on their variations.
We have seen several low-scoring games at this venue so far. The wicket has been tough to bat on and bowlers have found some assistance in the early stages of the game. Hence, the side winning the toss in this game would have no hesitation in opting to bowl first in this game.
North West bowlers would have to come out of the poor performance in the last game. They failed to take advantage of the conditions and must do well in this game for the side to win against the best side in the tournament. Western Province have their bowlers in good form and the side would look to achieve its fourth win in a row.
