NMG vs TST Dream11 Prediction: Having lost two matches in succession, hosts Nelson Mandela Bay Giants would be locking horns with an equally competitive Tshwane Spartans in the 23rd match of MSL 2019 scheduled to take place on December 6 amidst the conditions of St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth.

Led by JJ Smuts, the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants would be anxious about a triumph in the coming encounter if they are vying to book a seat in the playoffs. As of present, they are positioned at the second spot in the points table with four wins in seven matches, two losses, and a rain-abandoned contest.

On the other hand, the Heinrich Klaasen-captained Tshwane Spartans are seated one spot below with three wins in seven matches, a solitary loss, and three rain-abandoned feuds. The tourists would be coming into the contest on the back of a 15-run defeat versus Cape Town Blitz and would look to bounce back in the upcoming duel versus JJ Smuts & Co.
