MICT vs SUNE Match Prediction
These two teams will be keen to close the gap on the top two sides in the group stage and a win for either of them will see them do that at this early point of the tournament. We expect the winning side to be MI Cape Town after they produced an excellent display with both bat and ball against Joburg Super Kings. Sunrisers Eastern Cape are winless and they currently do not look capable of taking 10 wickets in a game. Our prediction is for MI Cape Town to get the victory on Tuesday.
We expect the MI Cape Town to win this match.

MICT vs SUNE Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
For MI Cape Town, Kagiso Rabada, George Linde and Olly Stone are our tips with the ball for MI Cape Town. Fast bowler Stone has won 12 international caps for England but it would be a lot more if he had not been so unfortunate with injuries. He returned figures of 2/18 on Saturday and he will enjoy bowling at Newlands. Linde comes into this match requiring two dismissals to bring up 150 T20 wickets.
Liam Dawson, Daniel Worrall, and Marco Jansen are our bowling picks for Sunrisers Eastern Cape. Left-arm spinner Dawson went wicketless against Durban’s Super Giants but he was the only player for his side to have an economy record under 8 runs per over. Worrall’s best T20 figures are 4/23 and he will get plenty of pace from this pitch in Cape Town.
