The SA20 2024 is still in its early stages, but has given us some great T20 games so far and is turning out to be a really good tournament. Match number 9 will take place at the Boland Park in Paarl where the Paarl Royals will be hosting the Joburg Super Kings. This will be the first time when these two teams will face each other in the tournament with two South African heavyweights facing each other. Will Faf Du Plessis and his men finally get a taste of glory in the season or will David Miller’s royal army once again dominate their team playing at their home turf?
The Paarl Royals have been great so far in their first two games against the Pretoria Capitals and will be looking forward to extending their winning streak. Their skipper has been in great form with two good knocks and their star pacer Lungi Ngidi has been giving great performances so far. They also have the better of their opponents in the upcoming game so far where they had beaten the Super Kings, while last time when they faced them last year. They will certainly go into this game with a lot of confidence going into this game as well.
The Joburg Super Kings on the other hand have had a disappointing season so far with 2 losses and 1 has been washed out game in their 3 matches. This is exactly the kind of start that they did not want after being one of the top 4 teams last season. The loss against the Durban SuperGiants was also a heavy defeat for Faf and his men. They will want to come back stronger in this upcoming game and get back to winning ways. This will be the right time for the Super Kings to prove themselves as one of the strongest sides in the tournament once again.

PR vs JSK: Pitch report
The Boland Park at Paarl has been known for being a great surface for the quick bowlers giving them enough pace and bounce in the wicket. The powerplay will be an important phase of the game going forward. The pitch however has got better for the batters as the game progresses and does not have really big dimensions. The best decision for the team will be to chase on this wicket considering the due factor as well. We hope to see another great contest between the two teams which will excite the crowd and keep the players on their feet.
