The final action in the Mzansi Super League this week sees NMB Giants host Jozi Stars in Port Elizabeth on Sunday and when the teams met earlier in the tournament the Giants ran out comfortable winners.
The Giants are second on the log with 19 points and a record of 4 wins, 1 defeat and 1 no result. They put Paarl Rocks away by 48 runs in a home fixture on Friday afternoon and they now hit the road again with confidence levels high.
The Giants had opened their campaign away to Jozi Stars and they came away with a comfortable 5 wicket win. JJ Smuts returned figures of 3/20 in his 4 overs and Dala and Phangiso were also miserly in their economy rate as NMB restricted Jozi to a total of just 124/7.
Thereafter it was the Ben Duckett show as the Giants overseas signing repaired nearly all the damage done after both openers were dismissed without scoring. Duckett smashed 75 off 45 balls and his team sealed the win with a full 2 overs remaining.
Jozi Stars gave their play off hopes a boost with a 53 run victory over Durban Heat at the Wanderers on Friday night. Stars posted 230/3 in that game with Reeza Hendricks not out 104 and their bowlers took early wickets to put the Heat on the back foot in the chase.
Stars record comprises of 2 wins and 3 defeats and their other victory came away to Paarl Rocks in Match 5.
