JSKS vs MCT Match Preview

Reeza Hendricks seems to be peaking just at the right time for JSK, as the put up a second consecutive 100+ partnership for the opening wicket. The partnership was instrumental in helping the Super Kings secure a 24-run win over their opponents.

As the tournament enters the knockout stages, more will be expected of the middle order. Leus du Plooy and Donavon Ferreira have got a couple of decent innings under their belt and will be looking to make a bigger contribution going ahead.

Gerald Coetzee will once again head the seam department, aided by Romario Shepherd. Kyle Simmonds brought in as a replacement for Aaron Phangiso, bowled a brilliant spell in the last match, picking up 3 wickets for 23 runs

Weather Report

The skies will remain overcast, aiding the seamers and the temperature is expected to remain below 25 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Johannesburg has produced some high-scoring games this season and we can expect more of the same in this match. The average first-inning score here is around 165 but the team batting first will be looking at scores over 180 to feel safe.

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Joburg Super Kings to win this match. They have been clinical in their performance this season and are high on confidence. Their batting is in excellent shape and will readily take on any challenge thrown by the opposition bowlers. 


Top Picks

Faf du Plessis: du Plessis is in excellent form this season and is the leading run-scorer of the tournament. He has scored 2 half-centuries and a century so far and the Wanderers is his favorite hunting ground.

Gerald Coetzee: Coetzee has picked up 14 wickets this season and is likely to be quite effective in this game as the pitch here is known to aid the seamers.

Rashid Khan: Rashid Khan is one of the best bowlers in the world, especially in the shortest format of the game. He can also contribute with the bat lower down the order.
