NMG vs DUR Dream11 Prediction: The 14th match of MSL 2019 would feature an in-form Nelson Mandela Bay Giants locking horns with Durban Heat amidst the conditions of St George’s Park, in Port Elizabeth.
Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have in supreme shape since the start of the ongoing T20s and are currently seated at the top of the points tally with three wins in four matches and a rain-abandoned contest. The JJ Smuts-captained side seems to have found their winning momentum and could easily be backed to emerge meritorious in the coming duel.
On the other hand, Durban Heat have had a forgetful start to the concurrent season of the Mzansi Super League. The Dane Vilas-led side has encountered three rain-abandoned contests with the match against Cape Town Blitz being their sole defeat as of present. A victory by whatsoever margin in the game against the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants is what the tourists would be wishing for if they are vying to book a seat in the later stages of the tournament.

JJ Smuts would be an ideal pick for the skipper’s spot in the fantasy XI. His consistent performances have been one of the prime contributors to Bay Giants’ victories in the ongoing edition. If not Smuts, then one could vouch in for Ben Dunks considering he has been second in command in terms of most runs for the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in MSL 2019.
The likes of Imran Tahir and Andile Phehukwayo would be ideal selections for the vice-captain’s spot. While the former’s exorbitant T20 experience attributes for his addition in NMG vs DUR Dream11 lineup, the latter’s is on account of his all-round potency which could reap benefits from a fantasy perspective.
