PR vs PC Match Prediction - Jan 22, 2023

The Paarl Royals are falling behind the rest of the pack after winning just two of their six matches. The three teams above them have only won one more match than them but the Paarl Royals would not want that gap to increase any more. 

Their task in this next SA 20 2023 match will not be easy. The Pretoria Capitals have set the pace for the other teams this season and with four wins from five matches sit at the very top of the table. The cricket betting sites have the Paarl Royals as the underdogs going into this contest and that is quite easy to see why. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Paarl Royals vs Pretoria Capitals SA 20 2023. The match will be played at Boland Park, Paarl on the 22nd of January 2023. 


PR vs PC Team Previews

Paarl Royals

<br /> Paarl Royals were in action less than 24 hours ago as they took on MI Cape Town. The contest was pretty low-scoring and the Paarl Royals certainly had their chances but the batting unit once again fell a bit short. The biggest positive for the Royals from that match would be the fact that Jos Buttler scored 68 and had a decent partnership with David Miller but they were the only players to cross 15 runs individually. 

Jason Roy and Wihan Lubbe continue to struggle at the top of the order. Dane Vilas is also having a really poor SA 20 as well. The surface in Paarl has been quite bowler-friendly, which may be one reason the Paarl batting lineup is struggling. 

This is also why the Paarl Royals have done quite well with their spin department. Bjorn Fortuin is the highest wicket-taker in SA 20 2023 right now and is well supported by Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Ferisco Adams. The contest between the Paarl spinners and the Pretoria batters could be decisive.

Pretoria Capitals

Pretoria Capitals have been dominant in SA 20 so far but we think they are going to find this match a pretty tricky one. On paper, the Pretoria Capitals have a stronger batting lineup and their bowling is also superior. After all, Phil Salt and Will Jacks are among the top scorers of SA 20 and rank among the batters with the best strike rate. 

In fact, Will Jacks currently tops both lists, a very rare occurrence. He also has the most fifties and the most sixes. 

This strong batting lineup which also features Rilee Rossouw, Theunis du Bryne, James Neesham, and Shane Dadswell is the reason why Pretoria Capitals enter this match as the favorite. On a spin-friendly wicket, where the average score batting first is just 130, the batters could struggle. 

We have not seen the middle-order step up and if they lost two or three quick wickets, the team could crumble. 

Pretoria Capitals also have a very good bowling lineup. Anrich Nortje, Ethan Bosch, and Wayne Parnell are the leading pace bowlers while Adil Rashid and Senuram Muthusamy provide the spin bowling options. Nortje is effective on any surface but we think Rashid and Muthusamy have to take the lead in this match. <br />

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain predicted in Paarl on match day. The sun should shine throughout and allow for an uninterrupted contest. 

The pitch at Boland Park is good for the spinners and does not have the same kind of pace that other venues have offered. This means that we generally see lower-scoring matches here than what we have been used to. 130 is the average score batting first with 169 the highest that nay team has managed so far. <br />  

PR vs PC Betting Tips

We think the Pretoria Capitals are the stronger team in this contest but the surface they are playing on may not suit them too well. A close contest in which you have time to hedge your bets is likely. That being said, Paarl Royals have struggled to put enough runs all throughout and are up against a strong bowling unit. In such a contest, it can be often smarter to make small bets and then add with in-play betting if the opportunity arises. 

All things considered, Pretoria Capitals are still the team to back.
