Paarl Royals vs Pretoria Capitals Preview

  • The Pretoria Capitals’ batting lineup is stronger because of the excellent play of Will Jacks and Phil Salt.
  • While the batting of the Paarl Royals has not been very strong, you cannot rule out David Miller, Jos Buttler, and Dane Vilas because they are playing at home.
  • Anrich Nortje is the star of Pretoria Capitals’ excellent bowling lineup, which could give them an advantage in this match.


On Sunday afternoon at Boland Park, Paarl Royals and Pretoria Capitals will play in game 18 of the SA20. The Royals are in fifth position in the tournament after dropping four of their six games. The Capitals are in first place in the standings with only one loss and four triumphs. The match starts at 13:30 local time in Paarl.

The Royals’ strong start to the competition has been overtaken by a drop in form, and we anticipate that Pretoria Capitals will be a very difficult opponent for them on Sunday.

Pretoria Capitals have only lost to Joburg Super Kings and won their most recent game on Friday by an eight-wicket margin.

Paarl Royals vs Pretoria Capitals Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report 

The entire game is expected to be played under clear skies and bright conditions in Paarl, with a high of 29 degrees.

The captain who won the coin toss choose to field the first three times in the four games played at Boland Park thus far in the competition. In this match, we anticipate that both skippers would seek to follow the same strategy.

Although Boland Park’s surface isn’t the fastest in the league, spinners have been able to excel here. A par score should not be higher than 160.

Paarl Royals Town Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The Royals attempted to jump-start their season by making several changes to the starting XI, leaving Wihan Lubbe, Corbin Bosch, Eoin Morgan, and Codi Yusuf out of the squad for Saturday’s setback. Although it did not succeed, we anticipate giving new participants another chance to participate in this game.
