SA20 – Qualifier 2 

Thursday 8 February 2024 – The Wanderers @ 17h30

JSK got the win in the eliminator and have the winning momentum but DSG have been the better side across the tournament.

The Wanderers plays host to this match again which could just give JSK a small but unearned edge.

To Win Match: Super Giants 82/100 | Super Kings 1/1

DSG have had a great SA20 campaign but it will mean little if they come unstuck at the Wanderers.

They weren’t able to handle the heat in the chase against the Sunrisers last time out and might prefer to bat first given their team balance.

DSG need their stars to return to form with the bat if they are to get another crack at the Sunrisers in the final.

Matthew Breetzke and Heinrich Klaasen will still be the dangermen for DSG even after faltering in their Qualifier One showdown with the Eastern Cape side.

JSK have shown themselves adept at chasing in contrast at least when it comes to their last outing where they knocked out a team in form in the Paarl Royals.

The Super Kings find themselves in the position the Sunrisers did last season and will be out to set a rematch of last season’s playoff match in the final.

Powered by the batting of Leus Du Plooy and Faf du Plessis, JSK might not have the depth of other sides but can still run any team in the tournament close with their teamwork.

They have also bowled brilliantly led by new Proteas star Nandre Burger and veteran spinner Imran Tahir.

Verdict: Joburg Super Kings

Momentum is key at this stage.
