SECvMICT Preview: Opportunity to avenge three Sunrisers-inflicted heartbreaks

By MI Cape Town Media

We’re entering the business end. We might be fourth on the points table, but let’s face it, we could do with a win after the two back-to-back losses And the Sunrisers, against whom we’ve been on the wrong side of the result in each of the three matches against them, offer the perfect opportunity to tick both boxes, and reverse both trends. 

There’s a lot that’s gone right for MI Cape Town in the six matches so far: the form of the openers, skipper Pollard’s captaincy, Nuwan Thushara’s super form on debut, Sam Curran’s batting transformation, George Linde’s miserly bowling act, Thomas Kaber coming in like a breath of fresh air. There’s also a lot that can go right, and it’s only a matter of time before it clicks, the middle-order in particular, and boy, oh boy, when it will, trust it to explode and make us an unstoppable force to deal with.
