NMG vs PR Dream11 Prediction: Having won the game against Durban Heat by a margin of five wickets, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants would be filled with confidence as they take on the Paarl Rocks in the 16th match of the ongoing T20 contests.
Banking on the prowess of Ben Dunks, Imran Tahir, and skipper JJ Smuts, the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have had a stupendous run in the ongoing edition of MSL with four wins in five matches and are currently sitting atop the points tally. With the form favoring them at the moment, one would expect the Bay Giants to surface meritorious in the coming feud.
Meanwhile, Paarl Rocks who have been one of the stronger sides in MSL 2019 would also be craving for a triumph by whatsoever margin in the game at Port Elizabeth. Led by Faf du Plessis, Paarl Rocks are currently placed at the second spot in the points tally with three wins in five matches along with a loss and a rain-abandoned contest. The tourists would be coming into the contest on the back of a victory over Cape Town Blitz and would look to forge ahead with a similar momentum against JJ Smuts’ men.

JJ Smuts has been highly consistent with his batting onslaughts and taking into account his present form, he seems like a viable fit for the captain’s slot. If not Smuts, then one could vouch for Ben Dunk or Jason Roy for the duo possess excellent hitting abilities and once set could tear apart the opposition with ease.
