After hosting a total of 30 matches, the group round of the SA20 2023 will conclude with a battle between Pretoria Capitals and Paarl Royals. The two teams are all set to cross swords with each other at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on Tuesday, February 07. The game is extremely important for the Royals while the Capitals will be playing without any pressure in the last league match.

Paarl Royals are currently occupying fourth place in the points table. They have collected 19 points so far in the competition with the help of four wins, one abandoned game, and four losses. The franchise has almost confirmed its place in the playoffs. However, they need to make sure that they do not lose the Tuesday game by a big margin.

The team was on a two-match winning streak, but their last game against Joburg Super Kings was washed out because of persistent rainfall in Johannesburg. On the other hand, Pretoria Capitals are enjoying a dream ride in the 2023 edition of the SA20 tournament. The team became the first team to qualify for the semi-finals by winning six of their nine league matches.

The Capitals will be low on confidence on Tuesday as they did not do well in their last game. Durban Super Giants beat them by a massive 151 runs following a terrible batting performance. The team succumbed to a poor score of 103 runs while following a big total of 255 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

Moreover, Paarl Royals were the ones who emerged victorious when they locked horns with the Pretoria Capitals for the first time in the extravaganza. The table-toppers were let down by the batters, as they posted only 158 runs on the scoreboard in their allotted 20 overs. The Royals chased the total within 19.4 overs.

Top Batter
  • Tip By: Brian Thorpe
  • 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.

Top Paarl Royals Batter: Jos Buttler

England’s limited-overs captain Jos Buttler has been flaunting his batting talent in the SA20 for the franchise Paarl Royals. He is the dominant force behind the team’s impressive run in the T20 extravaganza thus far. Jos Buttler is occupying third place in the most runs list just behind Faf du Plessis and Heinrich Klaasen. In nine matches, the wicketkeeper-batter has made headlines by scoring 308 runs at an average of 38.50. Buttler got off to a good start while batting in Royal’s last game against Joburg Super Kings. However, he walked back to the pavilion after scoring 23 runs off 11 balls. The 32-year-old will have the perfect opportunity to redeem himself on Tuesday as it is an important game for the franchise.
