CTB vs NMG Dream11 Match Prediction: Cape Town Blitz strive to wrench out of their impasse come tonight.
From challenging for a spot in the pinnacles of the Mzansi Super League to stumbling and going down a downward spiral which sees them in 5th spot as things stand. The wayward slump of Cape Town Blitz has been a torrid one, an unravelling of calamitous manner to see the unit’s ambitions of making it to the next round all but going up in smoke.
Losing three matches in succession after winning three matches in a row, Cape Town Blitz did manage to wrench out of their ordeal the last time around though, a result which will give them some kind of momentum ahead of today’s forthcoming contest. Playing against Tshwane Spartans, the side put in a place an exquisite bowling performance, one which saw them snare wickets at regular intervals to send their opponents back for just 142 to seal a 15 run win in their favour.
However, when they get ready to battle it out with Nelson Mandela Bay Giants come today’s forthcoming contest, the side know things aren’t going to be so straightforward any longer. They are taking on a team relinquished their lost top spot the last time around with a 6 wicket win over Tshwane Spartans as they chased down the healthy target of 189 laid out infront of them.
It not only saw the side reign supreme atop of the points tally both also bring an end to two straight defeats, a result they’ll be looking to emulate against a wayward opposition come today’s tie.
Although this won’t be a match where either side cruises through to a win, the table toppers make an advent into it as outright favourites, a side widely touted to further assert itself in first place at the end of the tie.
