After a humiliating defeat at the hands of Durban's Super Giants in their previous match, league leaders Pretoria Capitals (PRE) will next take on Paarl Royals (PRL) at the Super Sport Park in Centurion on Tuesday, February 7. Notably, the David Miller-led side is currently fourth on the SA20 2023 points table and are on the verge of qualifying for the semi-finals but a heavy defeat in their final league game can spoil the party.
Their last game against Joburg Super Kings was abandoned due to rain and in the match before that, the Royals had defeated Sunrisers Eastern Cape by five wickets. Stumper-batter Jos Buttler is playing some phenomenal cricket at the moment and that will boost everyone’s morale in Royals' dressing room.
David Miller too is in a good form and thus, there are a lot of positives for the team at the moment. When it comes to bowling, Andile Phehlukwayo and Evan Jones will be key once again.
When it comes to Capitals, they were terrible with the bat in the last match. Only four of their batters managed to score in double digits and the whole team was dismissed for 103 runs, bowlers were below par as well.
Super Giants posted 254 runs on board after 20 overs and that defined Pretoria's lacklustre bowling. Since the business end of the tournament is now upon us, Capitals would hope to get better in order to win the title in the inaugural season.

PRE vs PRL Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter
Stumper-batter Jos Buttler is playing some sensational cricket at the moment. The England skipper has scored 308 runs in nine matches and is the third-leading run-scorer of the tournament at the moment.
Probable best bowler
Since Anrich Nortje is likely to get some rest ahead of the playoffs, Bjorn Fortuin is likely to be the best bowler of the match. The 28-year-old has picked up 13 wickets in nine matches so far in the tournament and will be a key figure for Paarl Royals for the remainder of the season.
