Sunrisers Eastern Cape will face MI Cape Town in the ninth match of the SA20 2023 on Monday, January 16 at St. George’s Park. Sunrisers Eastern Cape is coming into the encounter, having suffered a loss at the hands of the high-flying Pretoria Capitals at Supersport Park in Centurion, and are struggling at the foot of the league after two games. With a win over MI Cape Town, the Aiden Markram-led team will try to secure their first win and generate some momentum. MI Cape Town has begun the SA20 season strongly, winning two of their first three matches. Despite their batting woes, MI Cape Town’s bowling has been outstanding, with Kagiso Rabada excelling in the last game. They will be looking to continue their winning ways against the Sunrisers, who are the only team in SA20 without a win.

With 363 runs scored in the previous game, the pitch at St. George’s Park should be a decent one to bat on. While pacers have taken most of the wickets, spinners will be crucial in the middle overs. With three wickets falling in the first six overs in the previous game, the powerplay period will be key as well. After winning the toss, chasing would be the favoured option, with the ball likely to come on nicely under the lights. St. George’s Park in Gqeberha is a bowler’s worst nightmare, being one of the highest-scoring surfaces in the competition. As a result, batters will try to take advantage of the favourable conditions and pile on large runs.
