DUR vs NMG Dream11 Prediction: Having won the game against Cape Town Blitz by a margin of 7-wickets, Durban Heat would be locking horns with an in-form Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in what promises to be a ripper of a duel for the fans to witness.
Led by Dane Vilas, the Durban Heat secured their first win of the season and would look to exhibit a winning show in the coming encounter. The hosts had earlier suffered a 5-wicket defeat in the previous match of MSL 2019 versus the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and would look to settle scores in the much-hyped feud.
On the other hand, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have been on song since the start of the season and are currently placed at the second spot in the points table with 4 wins in 6 matches and a Net Run Rate of +0.996. Although they suffered a 7-wicket defeat in the freshly concluded match versus Cape Town Blitz, they could still be considered as the stronger side in the coming feud considering they possess the likes of Ben Dunk, JJ Smuts, and Imran Tahir who are reigning supreme at the moment.

JJ Smuts would be a viable fit for the skipper’s slot in the coming contest. He has been quite consistent so far and could be vouched to render a sparkling exhibition in the coming contest. If not Smuts, then one could consider Ben Dunk or Wihan Lubbe as they’ve been pretty with the bat in the matches played so far. Imran Tahir could be backed to grapple impressionable figures in the coming duel, and thus he could be a feasible pick as a vice-captain for the Dream11 lineup.
