15th Match Preview: Nelson Mandela Bay Giants vs. Paarl Rocks
15th Match Preview: Nelson Mandela Bay Giants vs. Paarl Rocks

With just one loss in five games, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have stamped their presence in the Mzansi Super League and a face-off against mid-table Paarl Rocks gives them a chance to challenge the Cape Town Blitz at the top of the points table. The Bay Giants had to contend with just one point from their rain-abandoned game against Cape Town Blitz and will hope the rain stays away at Port Elizabeth as they take on the Rocks.

Paarl Rocks have nine points after four games but their net run rate is still in the negative. Two wins and two losses show that they haven't lived up to their reputation and the game against Bay Giants offers them a chance to make a statement about their presence. If they lose, the Rocks risk going back to a tussle with others in the bottom of the points table.

Conditions: Light showers expected amidst overcast condition. A sluggish wicket could slow down rate of scoring
