Time: 10:30 IST
Cloete (wk), Elgar, Bruyn, ABD (C), Zorzi, Frylinck, Williams, Mendis, Birch/Rory, Bosch, Simpala.
*Dean Elgar single handedly won the last game for Spartans but their fast bowling is looking very thin & inexperienced on paper.
Therefore, one of Birch or Rory will replace Hawken in the 11 today.
Cape Town Blitz:
QDK (wk), J Malan, Phehlukwayo, Behardien (C), Asif Ali, Talat, Linde, Adams, Steyn, Siboto, Peidt.
*Blitz doesn’t have a fixed batting order, they always try to keep Right-Left combination at the crease which also helps them to take advantage of the short boundaries. They have the luxury of having 4 lefties in their top 7, which allows them to rotate & shuffle their batting order as per opponent team’s bowling.
