The contributions from Khaya Zondo (38), Morne van Wyk(33), Sarel Erwee(32) at the top order was the supreme reason behind the Durban Heats laying a competitive total on board, and a similar performance would be expected from the trio in the forthcoming duel at Durban.
Keshav Maharaj ( 0/24) and Brandon Mavuta (1/32) were by far the best bowlers from the Durban lineup in the recently concluded contest and would be expected to mirror their performance in the anticipated game at Durban.

The team and management would be reliant on the opening duo of JJ Smith and Marus Marais to forge a majestic partnership for the Bay Giants. In case either one of them turns futile in the course of their duel, the task of ensuring the same would come down to Ben Duckett who seems like a plausible option for their unit.
Aaron Phangiso (1/22) and Imran Tahir (0/24) were the top performers in the previous game against the Jozi Stars and would be expected to don a similar role in the forthcoming game at Kingsmead.
While Chris Morris (1/43) and Sisanda Magal (1/31) registered expensive figures to their name, the fact that they form a lethal pace attack for the Bay Giants makes the duo a formidable pair to watch out for in the upcoming contest.
