  • Tournament: SA20 2023

Faf du Plessis will be one of the safest bets for the Monday encounter between Joburg Super Kings and MI Cape Town. The opening batter has been absolutely sensational in the T20 Championship as he is leading the Super Kings side by example. Du Plessis is currently the top run-scorer in SA20. In eight innings so far, the batter has smacked 369 runs at an average of 52.71 and a strike rate of 148.79. The 38-year-old also has one hundred and two fifties to his name. As far as his performance in the last game is concerned, the captain won the man of the match award for his exploits against Sunrisers Eastern Cape. While most of the batters struggled in scoring even ten runs, Faf hammered 92 runs off 61 balls. His knock, laced with seven fours and four sixes, helped the Super Kings in reaching a respectable score of 160 runs and then win by 24 runs.

MI Cape Town majorly failed in making an impact in the inaugural season of SA20 2023. Rassie van der Dussen was successful in gaining attention for all the right reasons, even though the team won just three matches. The 33-year-old is the top run-getter for the team with 223 runs in nine matches at an average of 31.86. The opening batter was the only saving grace for the team in their last game against Pretoria Capitals as well. Batting first, MI batters were struggling to get set in the middle. Despite that, the team managed to score 159 runs as Rassie scored 51 runs off just 29 balls at a strike rate of 175.86.

The young Gerald Coetzee is in the race to become the most valuable player of the season. The Super Kings seamer has rattled a lot of experienced and talented batters with his disciplined bowling in the SA20 competition. He is overall the third-highest wicket-taker in the competition with a whopping 14 wickets under his belt in only seven wickets at an average of 11.57. Coetzee will be in excellent form as he picked two wickets in the team’s most recent match.
