Paarl Royals vs Pretoria Capitals Match Pitch Report
The pitch of Boland Park Paarl is favorable for batsmen and spin bowlers also get help on this pitch.
At Boland Park Paarl Stadium, the team that wins the toss decides to bat because in this stadium it becomes easier to bat in the first innings, and in the second innings this stadium starts getting help for the spin bowlers.
What to expect:
Paarl Royals: The opening pair of Jos Buttler and Jason Roy have batted together many times and their understanding at the top of the order could be a big advantage for Paarl Royals. Buttler did not go past 70 in the 2023 SA20 but he brought up four half-centuries and he will be determined to finish with the most runs in the tournament once more. Alongside Buttler and Roy, skipper David Miller is another dangerous batter who contributed 227 runs last year.
Paarl Royals Key Players
- Jos Buttler- the England white-ball skipper had a very disappointing 2023 Cricket World Cup but found form again during the T20I series with West Indies in December.
- David Miller- the skipper has hit over 9700 T20 runs at an average of 35.43 and comes into this match with 48 scores of 50+ in this format.
- Tabraiz Shamsi- the 33-year-old left-arm wrist spinner has taken a 4+ wicket haul on eight occasions in T20 cricket and will enjoy bowling in Paarl.
- Obed McCoy- the tall and powerful left-arm pace bowler can often be expensive as he targets wickets over anything else. His T20 strike rate is 15.2.
Probable XI: Jos Buttler (wk), Jason Roy, Wihan Lubbe, Dane Vilas, David Miller (c), Andile Phehlukwayo, Fabian Allen, Bjorn Fortuin, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, Obed McCoy
Paarl Royals Squad: David Miller (Captain), Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Wihan Lubbe, Mitchell van Buuren, Dane Vilas, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi, Obed McCoy, Tabraiz Shamsi, Fabian Allen, John Turner, Lorcan Tucker, Ferisco Adams, Evan Jones, Bjorn Fortuin, Codi Yusuf, Kwena Maphaka, Lhuan Pretorius
Pretoria Capitals: The Capitals went all the way to the final last year and the Pretoria-based franchise will be hoping to go one better in this year’s tournament. However, that may be easier said than done as they will be without right-arm fast South Africa international Anrich Nortje who has been ruled out of the campaign with injury.
Pretoria Capitals Key Players
- Phil Salt- the keeper-batter returns to the SA20 2024 with his reputation at an all-time high following successive T20I centuries for England in the Caribbean during December.
- Will Jacks- the English all-format batting all-rounder impressed in the 2023 SA20 with an average of 38.57 from seven innings without any not-outs.
- Adil Rashid- the vastly experienced English right-arm leg-spinner was one of the few bright spots during the 2023 Cricket World Cup for his country and he seems to be getting better every year.
- Eathan Bosch- in the absence of Anrich Nortje, the right-arm fast bowler will have more responsibility in this year’s tournament. He impressed last season taking 15 wickets.
Probable XI: Will Jacks, Phil Salt (wk), Theunis de Bruyn, Rilee Rossouw, Colin Ingram, Jimmy Neesham, Eathan Bosch, Wayne Parnell (c), Migael Pretorius, Adil Rashid, Daryn Dupavillon
Pretoria Capitals Squad: Eathan Bosch (Captain), Rilee Rossouw, Colin Ingram, Will Jacks, James Neesham, Kyle Verreynne, Theunis de Bruyn, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Shane Dadswell, Corbin Bosch, Migael Pretorius, Paul Stirling, Adil Rashid, Matthew Boast, Daryn Dupavillon, Senuran Muthusamy, Steve Stolk

PR vs PRC Head to Head Stats in T20s
Paarl Royals vs Pretoria Capitals Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Jos Buttler, David Miller, and Dane Vilas are our batting choices for Paarl Royals. Vilas is a vastly experienced and reliable cricketer who has scored over 4100 T20 runs including 16 scores of 50+. Miller has a top score of 120 not out in T20s and 106 not out in T20Is. He can gradually build up an innings or go big from the first ball if required and opposition bowlers are often intimidated by his approach.
Our batting selections are Will Jacks, Rilee Rossouw, and Phil Salt for Pretoria Capitals. Rossouw hit only one half-century from 12 innings in an overall disappointing individual SA20 campaign last year. However, he has an excellent T20 record and is only 67 runs from bringing up 8000 in this format. Jacks not only hit over 200 runs in the 2023 SA20 but did so with a strike rate of 201.49. He can be an incredible batter to watch.
Paarl Royals vs Pretoria Capitals Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
For Paarl Royals, we are backing Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, and Obed McCoy with the ball. Ngidi returned from injury to play in the Second Test at Newlands against India earlier this year he is a fine operator in white ball cricket. He has 152 T20 wickets with a strike rate of 14.4 from 109 innings. McCoy will get pace and bounce from any pitch and his left-arm angle often causes problems when the ball is swinging.
Eathan Bosch, Jimmy Neesham, and Adil Rashid are our bowling picks for Pretoria Capitals. Neesham is a fine white ball player and he impressed in last year’s tournament where he took 14 wickets including his best figures of 3/7. Rashid has over 300 T20 wickets across his career and is not afraid of slowing his bowling down to really get the most out of a spinning pitch.
