#MICTvPC Preview: The clash of the table-toppers in our final home game
It’s all coming in together. The business end, our final home game, a week-long break, and the quest for our boys to go into it on a high. We’re up against the Pretoria Capitals, who have arguably been the most consistent team in the SA20 so far with four wins in their five games.
We’ve managed to turn things around as well against the Paarl Royals at Boland park on Saturday (January 21), with our bowlers putting a stunning show to keep the dangerous Jos Buttler quiet and defend a middling total.
It’s all about rising onwards and upwards now. We’re back in our beloved city of Cape Town, at Newlands, our fortress, and we are ready to thank our loyal army of supports, the Cape Town faithful, with a win!
What: MI Cape Town versus Pretoria Capitals, Match 20
When: Monday, January 23 2023
Where: Newlands, Cape Town
What to expect: Another true pitch with something in it for everyone. A par total of 160, with the ball swinging initially, turning a bit, with good bounce, and batters getting good value for their shots
What they said: “The crowd has been amazing. They have been backing us every single ball. To make them proud and to have them supporting us is something we enjoy very much.” – Dewald Brevis on the fans at Newlands
