SEC vs JSK Match Pitch Report
The pitch of St. George Park Stadium is considered favorable for bowlers. On the pitch, fast bowlers swing the ball, and spin bowlers are successful in turning their ball and it is a bit difficult for the batsmen to bat on this pitch, but the batsmen can bat till the end. He is present on the pitch and can score good runs, although, in the SAT20 league, the batsmen batted well on this pitch and scored good runs.
What to expect:
Sunrisers Eastern Cape: Ahead of this game, skipper Aiden Markram will still be basking in the glow of his remarkable Test century for South Africa against India in their rapid Second Test at Newlands last week. His innings was littered with booming drives through the covers and we can expect more of the same from the powerful right-hander in this match. South Africa captain Temba Bavuma is not expected to be fit after he missed the Second Test with India due to another hamstring injury.
Sunrisers Eastern Cape Key Players
- Aiden Markram – The right-handed skipper comes into this match only one week after his brilliant century for South Africa in their second innings total of 176 against India.
- Dawid Malan – The left-handed England international was one of a few bright spots for his country during the 2023 Cricket World Cup and he is an expert in this format.
- Marco Jansen – The bowling all-rounder impressed in the Test series against India with both bat and ball. He will enjoy the overhead conditions at St George’s Park on Wednesday.
- Liam Dawson – The left-arm spinner has taken 193 wickets in T20 cricket and dismissed a batter in each of his last two BBL appearances in December.
Probable XI: Adam Rossington (wk), Dawid Malan, Jordan Hermann, Aiden Markram (c), Sarel Erwee, Tristan Stubbs, Marco Jansen, Liam Dawson, Brydon Carse, Ottniel Baartman, Sisanda Magala

Joburg Super Kings: Joburg Super Kings have again assembled an exciting group of players who will be led by the former South African skipper and now T20 globetrotter Faf du Plessis. We expect the muscly opener to be part of a formidable top three which also includes South Africa opener Reeza Hendricks and England’s World Cup Winner Moeen Ali. And in David Wiese, Romario Shepherd and Gerald Coetzee, the Super Kings have plenty of big-hitting all-rounders to fall back on should the top order fail!
Joburg Super Kings Key Players
- Faf du Plessis – The right-handed opener had a top score of 113 not out in last year’s SA20 and he will be looking to get off to a flying start as he aims to improve on his average of 41.00 from that tournament.
- Moeen Ali – The all-rounder has the ability to win a game with the bat. He is one of the most clean striking left-handed batters in world cricket.
- Nandre Burger – The left-arm pace bowler had never played international cricket at the start of December last year but he has since picked up wickets across all formats and looks a very handy bowler.
- Imran Tahir – Even at 44 years of age, the spinner is still a real threat in T20 cricket. He has played in 391 games and taken 487 T20 wickets across his career
Probable XI: Faf du Plessis (Captain), Reeza Hendricks, Moeen Ali, Wayne Madsen, Leus Du Plooy, Donovan Ferreira, David Wiese, Imran Tahir, Aaron Phangiso, Gerald Coetzee, Nandre Burger
Joburg Super Kings Squad: Faf du Plessis (Captain), Reeza Hendricks, Donovan Ferreira, Leus Du Plooy, Gerald Coetzee, Nandre Burger, Moeen Ali, David Wiese, Zahir Khan, Sam Cook, Wayne Madsen, Lizard Williams, Romario Shepherd, Imran Tahir, Aaron Phangiso, Mongumusa Makhanya, Kyle Simmonds, Dayyaan Galiem, Ronan Hermann

SEC vs JSK Match Prediction
There will be plenty of interest across the globe in this tournament and this opening fixture with two strong sides going head to head. Sunrisers had put together another strong squad but the late withdrawals of Jamie Overton and Sisanda Magala left their bowling attack looking a little weak. As a result, we are backing Joburg Super Kings to get off to a winning start.
We expect the Joburg Super Kings to win this match.

SEC vs JSK Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Aiden Markram, Dawid Malan, and Tristan Stubbs are our tips with the bat for Brisbane Sunrisers Eastern Cape. Right-handed middle-order batter Stubbs made his Test debut for South Africa in the New Year’s Test and he is expected to be a key member for his country across all formats. Malan has scored over 8600 T20 runs with a top score of 117.
For Joburg Super Kings, our batting picks are Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali and Reeza Hendricks. 34-year-old right-handed opener Hendricks hit scores of 49 and 52 in the white ball internationals against India last month and is 3 runs away from bringing up 5500 T20 runs. Moeen has a top score of 121 not out in T20 cricket and has scored over 6000 runs at a strike rate over 141 in this format.
SEC vs JSK Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
For Sunrisers Eastern Cape, Brydon Carse, Marco Jansen, and Liam Dawson are our bowling choices. Right-arm fast bowling all-rounder Carse has played 14 ODIs and three T20Is for England and has best figures of 3/23 in this format. Jansen will be looking forward to bowling under the humid conditions in Gqeberha and he will be looking to improve on his top T20 figures of 3/25.
We recommend Gerald Coetzee, Nandre Burger, and Imran Tahir as our bowling selections for Joburg Super Kings. Coetzee announced himself on the international stage with an excellent performance at the 2023 Cricket World Cup where he was South Africa’s top wicket-taker with 20 dismissals. He also took 17 wickets from nine SA20 games last year. Burger comes into this game with best T20 figures of 3/11 from 44 matches.
