MCT vs DSG Match Prediction - Jan 13, 2023

It has been a real treat to watch high-quality cricket on the beautiful South African grounds with the crowds flocking in to see the games. We are hoping for another close contest when MI Cape Town takes on Durban's Super Giants in this next match of the SA 20 tournament. 

MI Cape Town won its opening match with ease and is also the bookmaker's favorite heading into this match. Durban's Super Giants had an excellent start with both bat and ball in their previous match but somehow ended up on the losing side. They have another tough task ahead of them in this contest.

MCT vs DSG Team Previews

MI Cape Town

MI Cape Town flexed its bowling muscles in the previous match as it unleashed a fit-again Jofra Archer on the scene. He started with a wicket-maiden and ended with three wickets in his four overs. The pace was back up close to 150 and the rhythm was just brilliant to watch. 

He is only going to play two matches this season (because of workload management) and so this could be the last time you see Archer for a while. Sam Curran, Duan Jansen, and Olly Stone all bowled very well to ensure that there were no 'easy overs' to be targeted. Rashid Khan bowled his four overs for 28 without taking a wicket but that has become almost a staple with him nowadays. 

MI Cape Town has a predominantly South African batting lineup with Dewald Brevis at its core. Baby AB, as he is called, smacked 70 not out from just 41 deliveries with five hits over the boundary to lead MI Cape Town to victory. 

There will be occasions where he fails and that is where the rest of the batting comes in. Rassie van der Dussen, Sam Curran, Ryan Rickelton, and Grant Roelofsen form a handy batting lineup for sure but it is not one that cannot be taken down.

Durban Super Giants

Durban's Super Giants used their spin-bowling resources very well in the previous match and we suspect that could be a strategy that Quinton de Kock follows in this match as well. He used Keshav Maharaj, Akila Dananjaya, and then Prenelan Subrayen very effectively to stifle the scoring rate. Wickets came as a result and allowed the Super Giants to take pole position. 

Unfortunately for them, the seamers were quite ineffective. Dwaine Pretorius, Keemo Paul, and Jason Holder did not have much effect and in fact, went for a lot of runs. 

The weakness in the bowling attack looks quite obvious and will be hard to fix. 

Quinton de Kock started brilliantly with the bat and ended up scoring 78 off 52. However, both he and Mayers struggled against the spinners. Every team in SA 20 would have seen that and will have their off-spinners ready when they come up against them. 

Heinrich Klaasen, Wiaan Mulder, Jason Holder, and Dwaine Pretorius form a pretty dangerous middle-order on paper but they were quite ineffective in the previous match. The balance of the Super Giants seems a bit off to us right now and it will take something special for them to be able to win this contest.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain forecast in Cape Town on match day. The sun will be shining and the cricket should go on without any interruptions. The pitch at Newlands will have something in it for the fast bowlers. Traditionally, bowlers have been able to extract some extra bounce and use the swing to trouble the batters. 

We saw 142 chased down in under 16 overs when MI Cape Town played here last so it suggests that an average score would be somewhere about 170-180. 

MCT vs DSG Betting Tips

MI Cape Town is the clear favorite at all the best cricket betting sites and the odds on offers are a bit short in our opinion. T20 is a funny game and a couple of good overs can change the scenario completely. This is why we advise you to be a bit cautious when the odds are not really in your favor. 

The team to back is still MI Cape Town because of its superior bowling lineup and the kind of batsmanship we saw from Dewald Brevis in the opening match. 

Bet on MI Cape Town to win.

We are going to back MI Cape Town in this betting market as well. The reasoning here is twofold. MI Cape Town has Dewald Brevis who is going to be aggressive at the top and also has a gun bowling attack that will make life difficult for Durban's Super Giants.
