The David Miller-led Paarl Royals somehow managed to sneak into the last four thanks to their superior net run rate helping them edge past Durban’s Super Giants. As the elimination rounds commence, Pretoria and Paarl will cross swords once again on February 8 at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

Capitals have shaped up fairly well in the tournament and will look to assert their dominance once again when they face Paarl. On the other hand, Miller and Co. will be on the lookout to overcome their most recent failure and turn the table to find a spot in the finals of the inaugural season.

PRE vs PRL Pitch Report

The 22-yard strip at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg has been a fairly decent surface to bat. However, the pacers could find some movement early on in the contest with the help of the new ball. Adding to the same, batters could find it tricky to get the runs as the surface tends to get slower as the match progresses. Batting first should be the way forward and any score beyond 165 can turn out to be a good enough total to defend.

PRE vs PRL Probable Playing XIs

Pretoria Capitals (PRE):

Philip Salt (wk), Kusal Mendis, Theunis de Bruyn (c), Rilee Rossouw, Colin Ingram, James Neesham, Senuran Muthusamy, Migael Pretorius, Eathan Bosch, Adil Rashid, Anrich Nortje

Paarl Royals (PRL):

Jason Roy, Paul Stirling, Jos Buttler (wk), Mitchell Van Buuren, David Miller (c), Eoin Morgan, Evan Jones, Andile Phehlukwayo, Bjorn Fortuin, Codi Yusuf, Lungi Ngidi

PRE vs PRL Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter

Kusal Mendis:

The Lankan batter will look to light up the stage at the Wanderers in the forthcoming game just as he did in Centurion by carving out a blistering knock of 80 off just 41 balls which included four maximums and eight boundaries. Him laying a solid foundation along with keeper-batter Philip Salt will help the side in the forthcoming contest. 

Probable best bowler

Lungi Ngidi:

Taking the Johannesburg wicket into consideration, Lungi Ngidi has the credentials to provide his side with the required breakthroughs in the crucial contest. He proved to be costly in the previous contest leaking runs at an economy of 9.75 despite taking two wickets against the same side. But will aim to restrict the rival side from scoring big and continue to get the wickets in the semi-final.

Today's Match Prediction: Team batting first to win the match.
