Durban Super Giants vs Paarl Royals Preview

  • Paarl Royals won with a bonus point, becoming the second team in SA20 to do so.
  • Jos Buttler should not be avoided in this game. He’s anticipated receiving a high score.
  • In their previous match, the Paarl Royals bowlers all out the Joburg Super Kings at just 81.


On Sunday afternoon, Match 8 of the SA20 will take place at Kingsmead between Durban’s Super Giants and Paarl Royals. Before defeating MI Cape Town on Friday, the Super Giants fell to the Joburg Super Kings in their inaugural game. Prior to defeating Joburg Super Kings in their subsequent match, Paarl Royals suffered a loss to MI Cape Town. In Durban, the match begins at 13:30 local time.

In their victory over MI Cape Town on Friday, the Durban Super Giants displayed the strength of their bats. When players like de Kock and Kyle Mayers are on their game, they will be difficult opponents for any squad.

After batting too slowly in their first game, Paarl Royals’ bowlers put on an outstanding performance in their second encounter. The Royals are serious SA20 contenders and will be challenging to contain in this match.

Durban Super Giants vs Paarl Royals Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report 

On the day of the game, Durban will experience extremely warm and muggy weather.

The team batting first has prevailed in 38 of the 67 games that have been played here. The team that wins the toss in this game will presumably decide to bat first.

Due to its strong bounce, the Kingsmead in Durban will surely be a favourite among seam bowlers. The bounce does, however, become more controllable after the first few overs, and the hitters will then have fun.
