Venue: Boland Park. Paarl.
Time: 9:30 IST
Pitch & conditions:
Historically, not a huge scoring ground but the last MSLT20 game at Paarl was a run fest with over 400 runs scored by both the teams. It was a day game though, might not be as batting friendly under lights today.
Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo & Cameron Delport have joined their T10 teams & will be unavailable till the second half of the tournament.
Expected Playing 11:
Dussen, Rickelton, Biljon, Vilas (C & Wk), Christian, Harmer, Pongolo/Mothoa (if fit), Savage, Olivier, Eddie, Hendricks.
*Harmer is likely to replace Gayle in the 11
*Pongolo who wasn’t picked in the original squad due to Mothoa’s car accident will continue to play unless Mothoa gets fit & available.
Klinger, Davids, Jaarsveld, Mosehle (wk), Kruger, Wiese, Thompson, Fortuin, Moreki, Paterson, Mungroo.
*Wiese will replace Delport in the eleven & Moreki is expected to replace DJ Bravo.

For multiplayer leagues:
You can pick Harmer, Thompson or Wiese by replacing a batsman. With Bravo unavailable, Weise can bowl in the death & take the new ball or if he takes the new ball then Mungroo can bowl at death. If you want to pick only one, you can go with Wiese.
