23rd Match: DSG vs MICT
DSG and MICT will lock horns for the 23rd match of the ongoing South Africa T20 League. The match is scheduled at the Kingsmead in Durban on Thursday, February 02, 2023. While DSG are sitting at the extreme bottom of the points table with only 2 wins in 7 matches, MICT are just above them with one more win in the same number of matches.
The last time they faced each other was in the 5th match of this league season. MICT while batting first in that match drafted 152 runs with Grant Roelofsen scoring 52 runs off just 44 balls. Reece Topley, Hardus Viljoen, and Prenelan Subrayem picked up two scalps each to restrict the flow of runs.
In the second innings of the game, Kyle Mayers, Wiaan Mulder and Heinrich Klaasen scored 30+ runs to power the innings. The final touch was provided by Keemo Paul who smashed 20 runs off just 8 deliveries to finish off the game in just 16.3 overs with 5 wickets to spare.
Both sides have to keep winning matches to keep their hopes of qualifying for the next stages alive in the tournament.

Pitch & Weather Report
The average first-inning score at Kingsmead in Durban in both T20Is and domestic T20s is around 150 runs. This is that historic ground where the veteran Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh hit 6 sixes off England’s Stuart Broad in the World Twenty20 back in 2007. The match is expected to be a high-scoring encounter with power hitters on both sides and a batters-friendly pitch. The surface also is a heaven for pacers, offering them good carry and bounce. However, in recent times, the surface has changed and is assisting spinners where their role may come into handy now.
The weather is predicted to be sunny with hints of clouds with a high of 27 and a low of 22 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be at 76% with a wind rate of 19 kmph.

The match will be a nail-biting affair for sure with both teams struggling. DSG are currently without a victory in their previous four matches. Hope this break has given them ample time to identify their mistakes. They have lost two out of three games organised at Durban.
On the other side, MICT has a hint of an advantage over DSG. They have a powerful batting lineup and also their bowlers have performed well in this league. Also, the introduction of Tim David into their team has surely increased their chances of winning.
Thus we predict MICT to win the match against DSG.
