CTB vs DUR Dream11 Prediction: Both Cape Town Blitz and Durban Heat suffered defeats in their lately concluded outings and would look to bounce back on a winning note in the coming encounter.
Cape Town Blitz have had their share of ups and downs in the matches competed so far. The Quinton de Kock-led side started MSL 2019 on a winning note but somewhere in the middle lost the momentum and are now placed at the fourth spot in the points tally with three wins and as many defeats in six contests played so far. Although they’ve suffered defeats in the last two matches, being the home side and the kind of the potential they possess on board, one could expect them to emerge meritorious in the upcoming encounter.
On the other hand, Durban Heat are yet to taste success in the ongoing edition of MSL. Three out of five matches they’ve competed so far have been abandoned due to rain with the other two losses coming at the hands of Cape Town Blitz and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants.
In the first encounter of MSL 2019, Cape Town Blitz had secured a victory by a margin of 10 runs courtesy Dale Steyn (2/23) and Wahab Riaz (1/24) for grabbing economical figures to their name.
It would be interesting to see how things pan out in the coming game at Newlands.

Excellent cricketing conditions await both the teams at Newlands with a clear sky throughout. The temperature would be hovering between 19-21 degrees Celsius with humidity levels as high as 86 percent as the game progresses further. With the pacers finding it difficult to grip the ball in the latter stages, it would be advisable for the toss winning captain to consider batting first on this surface. Scores as high as 180 could be put to witness in the coming encounter.

Quinton de Kock (c and wk), Janneman Malan, Gregory Mahlokwana, Marques Ackerman, Sisanda Magala, Liam Livingstone, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Wahab Riaz, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn
Dane Vilas (c and wk), Wesley Marshall, Wihan Lubbe, Shaun von Berg, Keshav Maharaj, Malusi Siboto, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kyle Abbott, Alex Hales, David Miller, Ravi Bopara
Quinton de Kock has had a phenomenal run so far and since he could offer fantasy points both as a wicket-keeper and as a batsman, his appointment as a captain seems like a viable decision for the coming contest. If not de Kock, one could ponder between Janneman Malan or Liam Li
