Match 29 preview: Paarl Rocks v Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

The Paarl Rocks and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants will clash in the 29th match of the Mzansi Super League (MSL) in Paarl on Wednesday.

On the other hand, the Giants will also be looking to register a win to secure their place in the next round.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of JJ Smuts and Ben Duckett to score bulk of the runs, whereas in the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Chris Morris and Imran Tahir to provide timely breakthroughs.

In their previous match, the Giants registered a 28-run defeat against Tshwane Spartans on Saturday.

When the both teams previously met in the tournament, it was the Giants who came out on top by 48-run margin.
