DUR vs NMG Dream11 Prediction, MSL 2019, Match 20: Preview, Form Guide, Pitch Report, Playing XI & Fantasy Cricket Tips

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.

DUR vs NMG Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips

Durban Heat

  • Wihan Lubbe has been the leading run-scorer for the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in MSL 2019. In 4 innings outings, he has amassed 132 runs at an average and strike rate of 33.00 and 178.57 respectively. Not to forget, he scored a 28-ball 49 in the recently concluded contest versus Cape Town Blitz which comprised 8-fours and a solitary six.
  • Dane Vilas has to have his name engraved in the Dream11 team for the coming contest. The skipper scored a match-winning 75 off 47 deliveries in the previous outing versus Cape Town Blitz and in total has amassed 102 runs in 4 innings at an average and strike rate of 34.00 and 143.66 respectively.
  • Malusi Siboto has been the top-performer with the ball in the ongoing edition of MSL with 5 wickets in 4 innings at an average of 26.20.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

  • JJ Smuts will be a pick for his top-notch exhibitions in MSL 2019 wherein he has piled 151 runs in 5 innings at average and strike rates of 37.75 and 138.53 respectively.
  • Ben Dunk has been in splendid form this season with an amassed tally of 145 runs in 5 innings at an average and strike rate of 36.25 and 134.25 respectively. Coming in at No 4, the left-handed batsman put 45 runs on board in the lately finished game against Paarl Rocks and would be hoping to replicate a similar show at Durban.
  • Junior Dala’s pace potency has been one of the prime contributors to his side’s triumph in the ongoing duel. In 6 innings played so far, Dala has affected 10 dismissals while maintaining an average and economy of 18.90 and 9.45 respectively.
  • Imran Tahir’s enormous T20 experience could be of great assitance to his side in the coming contest. The leggie has affected 9 dismissals in 6 innings at a jaw-dropping average of 13.77. The lately concluded game against Paarl Rocks witnessed the 40-year-old bag figures of 4-0-19-2 and with is current form, one would expect a similar exhibition from his end at Durban.

Captain & Vice-Captain

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.
