The SA20 playoffs are underway with the top four teams already decided after a gruelling league stage between the 6 teams. This will be the battle between number 3 and number 4 in the league as the Paarl Royals will take on the Joburg Super Kings. This is going to be the game where one team will go to the 2nd qualifier and will be one step away from the final of the SA20 2024 and the other will have to finally go home and say goodbye to their chances of winning the title this season. The Paarl Royals have suffered 4 losses in a row in the second half of their season but still kept the 4th spot because of their great performances in the first half.
On the other hand, the Super Kings who looked down and out at one stage have managed to scrape their way through into this eliminator and keep their chances alive. With only 3 wins from their 10 games, they might consider themselves lucky, but Faf Du Plessis and his men will still feel that they have a chance to win the title once again. This is a do-or-die match for both teams and this is set to be a great contest between these two sides who are two wins away from getting their chance in the final.
Match- Paarl Royals (PR) vs Joburg Super Kings, Eliminator
Date- 7th February 2024
Venue- The Wanderers Stadium
Time-9:00 PM (IST)
The Wanderers has been a real batting paradise this season with a lot of big scores on this ground and the number of powerful hitters these two sides possess will be the key men. The pitch seemed to get better and better as the match progressed, but there were still some matches where the pitch seemed to extract some extra bounce and seam movement under lights. This gives the indication that it will be better to bat first on this wicket and put a big total on the board. We are in for a great match between these two sides who will be fighting to win and keep their title chances alive.
